Remember that dual-screen Toshiba concept PC we told you all about in June? It's a real product, and Amazon has started taking pre-orders. Although the e-tailer doesn't quote a release date, the libretto W105 could soon be yours for the not-so-low price of $1,099.99.
The specifications don't appear to have changed since June; Amazon's spec sheet lists a 1.2GHz Pentium processor, a couple gigs of DDR3 RAM, 62 gigs of storage, dual seven-inch touch screens, an eight-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium. If it weren't for the novel form factor and dual displays, this system would probably have more in common with today's consumer ultraportables than netbooks. As it is, though, this thing belongs in a category of its own:
Too bad the libretto W105 (or is it W100?) seems to be a limited-edition product released to celebrate the libretto brand's 25th anniversary. Getting more of these puppies out into the market—and perhaps at a lower price—would probably have encouraged developers to do some cool things with the dual touch screens. Here's hoping we'll see a cheaper derivative for the mass market.
