  1. Using a laptop has distinct advantages over desktops, most prominently in the mobility department. To gain that boost in portability, though, sacrifices must be made. As a whole, laptops lack the computing muscle offered by their clunky counterparts. That shows in more areas than one - not least in precious screen real estate.

    Those specs are nice, I would like to have one of those. But still, the average laptop I see out there has around 2 hours of battery life. And with two screens? I could only see myself using this in my home or at the library. But the library has computers so I wouldn't need it there. And for 3000, I could build 2-4 computers that run at that speed w/ the dual screen. The dual screen may be this products downfall. But of course, it IS smaller than a desktop. So that is a plus. However, I don't live in China, so space isn't really a big deal.

    Cool idea, I dont really see it being practical though. But I am sure there is a niche market where it will fit in.

    I don't get it, two displays will bend any battery over, that kills any mobility to begin with.

    Oh pshaw, someone will have to be the first kid on the block to have one. Usually it's the kid that can afford to have another kid to carry it for him.

    Besides, it's a stretch of the imagination to consider this thing "portable". I can just picture unfolding this monstrosity in the train with somebody sitting next to you.

    As cool as that is . . . I just don't see myself needing that in a laptop. That said, I am sure there are some people out there who could use it . . . I just can't think of who they are at the moment.

    If you were some sort of civil engineer or something and needed to be able to take really complex designs out to clients or something then this would be a godsend.
