Well, as you are aware in the couple of years Notebooks have improved in many ways from enhanced portability to increased battery life to computing power similar to desktops. However, one area remains unchanged and that is….any Guess? Yep, the limited screen size.
Larger screens usually destined to compromise on portability. However, it is all about to alter with the GScreen SpaceBook. We initially saw the prototype notebook almost 2 years ago and finally right now it is all set to strike the market.
The Gscreen Spacebook sports dual 17-inch displays; which slide to open side-by-side for a remarkable panoramic view. This will be particularly welcomed by people used to having a dual monitor setup with their desktops and feel confined when they need to work on the go with their laptops. The displays are equipped with full HD 1920×1080 resolution and are obtainable in both glossy and matte.
Gordon Stewart, the CEO of Gscreen came up with the idea a couple of years back when he needed to work on a film project while in Hawaii. He realized he would have to bring his complete desktop setup all the way from Anchorage in order to get the computing power and screen real estate he needed to work. That is the time when he started to design and build the dual screen SpaceBook laptop.
The SpaceBook comes in 2 models, one with Intel Core i5-560M 2.66GHz processor and 4GB of RAM at a price tag of $2395, and the second one with Intel Core i7-740qm quad-core 1.74 GHz processor and 8GB of RAM at a price tag of $3795. Interestingly, Pre-orders have right now started and can be placed the orders at the Gscreen SpaceBook product page.
