Continuum, the Windows 10 Mobile feature that allows mobile apps to be run on a monitor via a wireless or wired adapter, has been around for a while now but few companies have chosen to take advantage of it or use it to innovate new hardware creation as much as Miraxess who are using it as the main focus of their upcoming Mirabook laptop.

The Mirabook is based solely on the Continuum concept and essentially uses a Windows 10 Mobile Windows phone to power the laptop. The device boasts a backlit keyboard, up to 10 hours of battery life, a 1080p 13.3-inch screen, numerous ports (2 USB Type C, 2 USB 3.0, 1 HDMI, 1 Audio Jack, and 1 SD card extender), and an aluminum shell.



The user experience is very similar to connecting a Windows 10 Mobile smartphone to a larger monitor and connecting a dock and BlueTooth keyboard but all of these additional accessories are bundled together into the one laptop form factor which is significantly more convenient.

Users will only be able to use Continuum-enabled Windows 10 apps on the Mirabook but it’s also incredibly affordable when compared to full Windows 10 laptops with its price being set at as low as $249. It could be a legitimate option for a segment of the market who only need a laptop for basic tasks and are on a budget.

Units are expected to ship sometime in May 2018. Pre-orders are open now.

Do you like the idea of the Mirabook and would you buy one? Would you like to see Microsoft develop something like this in the future? Let us know in the comments below.
