Spacebook – GScreen’s laptop with Dual Screens


Now this would be handy for my job – I am half in the office and half out of the office, and I already use dual screens for working in the office to extend my workspace.

gScreen ( is releasing this around the 4th quarter of 2009, with the following specs:

- 2 LED backlit display screens
- Windows VISTA/ WIN 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

The chassis is built around the 15.4 inch screen (though the first units that come to market will have 16-inch or 17-inch screens) and its twin, identically sized screen slides out from behind the first using a uniquely designed sliding mechanism.

It was designed so that if you do not need the extra screen you do not have to use it. I am assuming that this will mean it will not use extra power with only one screen on, so only when I am in an office type situation would external power to keep the batteries from running flat quickly.
