Rocking what appears to be a design similar to the Kohjinsha DZ/Onkyo DX, the GScreen Spacebook 17 will feature two 17.3â€ screens for when you need a lot of screen real estate on the go. This might seem like a novel idea, but let me just say that I wish I had one of these beasts. For certain scenarios, there is nothing more useful than having two screens to be able to work with. It generally all comes down to being able to work on one thing while referencing another without getting lost in a sea of windows, but even beyond that, two screens can be useful to manage things like IM chat and music from one screen while you focus your work on another screen.
Many serious computer workers use dual-screen desktop setups, but this is the first time that dual-screens will be available in a notebook of this size. Unfortunately this multi-monitor notebook will cost you a pretty penny. Engadget is reporting that the Spacebook 17 will go on sale in May for $2,895. Check the important specs below and see the rest of them over at GScreen’s official site.
