CES: Dual Screens Coming to your Laptop

While at CES, I managed to gain access to the briefing rooms upstairs in the Microsoft booth.  Here, I found all sorts of hot new tech that was talked about but not put down on the show floor for general press to lay their greasy hands on. One of the cool things I found was a dual screen laptop from Onkyo Corporation – Model DX1007A5. This little wonder cam complete with two 10.1 inch wide screens running 1266×768 resolution. It also has an AMD Athlon Neo processor at 1.60 GHz, 2GB of memory, 320GB of hard drive storage, a 1.3 Megapixel camera, WiFi support for n/b/g standards and of course, Bluetooth. All of that, along with a 6 cell Li-ion battery is stuffed into this 1.8Kg package. Do I even need to mention that it’s running Windows 7?

It was hard to resist getting hands on with this machine.  When you open the lid of the laptop, the two screens are stacked, one in front and the other behind. You can then pull then apart, sliding one to the left and the other to the right. They move very easily and snap into place when extended.

There’s no word on when this would become available or how much it would cost. Or even if they plan to bring it to North America. Onkyo isn’t really known for their personal computers on this side of the world. It’s my guess that we won’t see this available around these parts. I sure hope I’m wrong.
