See the Laptop With Two Full-sized Screens

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 3 comments

This could be the world's first laptop slider.

For those of us who transition between a multi-monitor setup on our desktops and have to go back to just one display on a laptop, gScreen might be the answer.

Alaska-based gScreen Corp. is designing a laptop with two 15.4-inch screens built in. While a laptop with two screens isn't a completely new idea, as Lenovo has already executed the idea, this one from gScreen does so with two full sized displays that slide out side by side.

Spacebook planned specs:

- 2 LED backlit display screens- Windows Vista/ Windows XP Pro (optional)

- Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 2.26-GHz

- 4 GB of RAM (2GB DDR2 SO-DIMM x 2)

- 320GB 7200 RPM HD

- Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT with 512MB dedicated memory (or)

- Nvidia Quadro FX 1700M Graphics with 512MB dedicated memory

- 9-cell battery

- IEEE 1394 1 Graphics Card Output (15-pin, D-Sub) X 1, HDMI X 1 Mic-in X 1, Line-in x 1, Headphone X 1 PCI Express Card X 1 AC Power Adaptor Output: 19V DC, 90W Input: 100~240V AC, 50/60Hz universal battery pack Li-ion 9 cells

Gizmodo has early images of this laptop in the flesh:

Looks cool, huh? It'll weigh a hefty 12 lbs though. Would you have a good use for it?

    Since one screen can consume about 30% of the power I'd say this one would be quite hefty on the battery. Still though - it's a great solution for someone who wants a mobile dual monitor display but it's a lot of weight to carry around.

    And of course the obligatory "Yes but can it play crysis" (just about perhaps?)

    It will play Crysis, but there'll be an inch thick black plastic-bar in the middle of your game - and resolution will be something like 4200x720....did someone say fat opponents? :o

    "Great, now people can Photoshop/Autocad/thingamabob at the beach.."
