Back in early October, Microsoft gave us a first taste of its Surface Neo dual display folding PC. In a way, the Surface Neo reveal was the culmination of a decade of anticipation that started when Microsoft's initial Courier concept first leaked. The Surface Neo makes use of two displays that can fold rather than a single, flexible display (a la the ThinkPad X1 Fold).
