Laptops don't have to be all about value and mobility. Lenovo made a good case for that notion last year, when it introduced the dual-display ThinkPad W700ds. Now, a firm based in Anchorage, Alaska is cooking up a notebook with two full-sized 15.4" panels that can slide into a nicely symmetric dual-head setup.
According to the gScreen blog, the Spacebook 005 will become available at a still-undisclosed price next quarter. You'll be able to order the system directly from Amazon.com at first, but gScreen expects to make it available through Newegg, Buy.com, and international Amazon sites within three to six months of the launch.
The front page of the gScreen website quotes the following specs: a 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB 7,200-RPM hard drive, Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT or Quadro FX 1700M graphics with HDMI output, a PCI Express slot (presumably of the mini variety), and a nine-cell battery. Oddly, there's no mention of Wi-Fi; perhaps that's what the PCIe slot is for. (Or maybe this thing is so heavy you'll need to use it on a desk with a nearby Ethernet connection, anyway.)
gScreen is also working on a smaller version of the Spacebook with dual 13.3" displays—see the third image in the gallery below. However, that machine won't become available until after the Spacebook 005 hits Amazon. (Thanks to CTOvision.com for the link.)
