Abstract

Disclosed is a laptop or notebook computer which is designed to have small hinges between a display panel and a system unit. In Fig. 1, which shows the construction of the laptop or notebook computer, small hinge mechanisms 1, 2 and display cables 3, 4 are shown. The cables 3, 4 come out through the holes of the rings of the small hinge mechanisms 1, 2 as clearly shown in Fig. 2. This compact hinge design en ables mounting components, a battery, connectors, and so on, on the upper rear side of the system unit, and results in accomplishing a small size laptop or notebook computer. This hinge design may be applied to apparatus other than the laptop or notebook computer.

Small Hinge Design for Laptop Computer

      Disclosed is a laptop or notebook computer which is
designed to have small hinges between a display panel and a system
unit.  In Fig. 1, which shows the construction of the laptop or
notebook computer, small hinge mechanisms 1, 2 and display cables 3,
4 are shown.  The cables 3, 4 come out through the holes of the rings
of the small hinge mechanisms 1, 2 as clearly shown in Fig. 2.  This
compact hinge design en ables mounting components, a battery,
connectors, and so on, on the upper rear side of the system unit, and
results in accomplishing a small size laptop or notebook computer.
This hinge design may be applied to apparatus other than the laptop
or notebook computer.
