Laptop with Dual Screen (inbuilt)

It may be stupid question but is it possible to design new kind of laptop with inbuilt secondary Screen? I mean while opening secondary screen (S) overlap to primary screen (P) and work as P-screen. And in dual mode P-Screen contain hinges (left / right side - I prefer the left) help to open S-Screen like door till 180° degree. Hinges and connector should have flip facility to make S-screen toward to you and opposite to you. If hinges on left side we should update windows make S-screen as primary monitor. 

The reason behind to connect you guys only, I prefer DELL because of value for money. And for your team this idea will cost you not more than $120. Which help you to increase your sale with new implementation. Other companies’ laptop is already high price and this idea will increase the machine price too high that buying universal docking port and dual monitor with stand will be cheaper.

As I am from India and now a days in most of places desktop replaced by Laptop, however still 3 main things we miss with desktop, "Keyboard, Mouse and Dual Screen Option" and the reason behind we use external monitor and using universal docking port and dual monitor with stand take much place. 14" Laptop with dual flip screen may be ultimate idea to solve issue of Banking Sector (where 1 screen required to show customers), Schools (where 1 screen required to show students), and Developer where both screen with same size required for development, testing and comparisons.

Please think if this can be possible. I tried to come up with some design, however there is no option to paste images here. But your team is genius, and they can make 100 time better design, what I made.

Let me know your views.

Thanks,

It's been done.  ASUS has the Zenbook Pro Duo, and before that Lenovo had a ThinkPad W Series that had a second display that could be pulled out like a drawer from behind the first display.  And then there's the Microsoft Surface Neo that was announced a while ago but hasn't arrived yet.

There's also the Razer Project Valerie that has triple displays on a laptop, or this product that can be used as an attachment to an existing laptop to give it triple displays.  And then of course there are portable USB-C displays that can run on USB power like the ASUS MB16AC, which I actually have.  That way you can have dual displays when you want them without having permanent extra bulk on your system.

I'm looking forward to the arrival of dual screen laptops as I am far more productive on two screens.
