Next Big Thing – multiscreen laptops
April Fools Day was months ago
Not as long ago as 2009, the year GScreen first announced this dual screen-toting laptop. At that time it was pre-production, but we seem to have reached the pre-order stage, unlikely as it may seem.
Is it really necessary?
Probably not, but this is more of a proof of concept that will appeal to a niche category of geeks. Two screens is better than one, but we'd question the wisdom of pricing it against portability. Surely a pair of Cinema Displays daisy-chained to a MacBook Pro is the better choice.
And which is more expensive
The GScreen starts from US$2400 for the entry level last-gen Intel i5 processor model with 4GB of RAM, 500GB of memory and 1GB of dedicated Nvidia graphics. Not the best spec:price ratio, but did we forget to mention it has two 17in screens? Because it totally does.
