Submission + - Do two-screen laptops make sense? (pcauthority.com.au)

An anonymous reader writes: With two 17in HD LED displays, the SpaceBook goes against every trend in laptop design we can think of (well, apart from the Core i7 and Core i5 processors). It's more than 1.7in thick, weighs more than 4.5 kilograms, and apparently has the world's largest laptop screen space. As odd as lugging a 4.5Kg laptop around sounds, it actually makes some sort of sense when you think about it. Sure, there are now plenty of powerful laptops that can replace a desktop PC. But for some of us, it's never the same as sitting in front of a PC. Especially if you're used to having two screens. Someone must think there's a market for the twin-screen laptop — this isn't the first. Lenovo brought one out a couple of years ago. Given the number of people who prefer multi-monitor setup, surely someone can come up with a lighter, less cumbersome, and cheaper design?
