Dual-screen laptop to be released this year

A dual-screen notebook will be released in the United States later this year by Alaska-based firm gScreen.

gScreen claims their G400 Spacebook is the first dual screen laptop with two 15.4 inch LED display screens and a full-size keyboard, built into one unit. Though no pricing has been announced yet, reports state that it could be close to the $3,000 mark.

The notebook, which will be powered by Intel Core 2 Duo and run Microsoft Windows Vista/XP Professional is geared towards designers, animators and photographers who are used to double-screen desktop environments. It will be available for shipment from the USA to both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates through Amazon.

gScreen's Spacebook model won't be the only dual-screen laptop to hit the market with both Lenovo and HP keen to join in the double action.

At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this year, Lenovo released details on its new ThinkPad W700ds that sports a main 17 inch LCD screen and an additional 10.6 inch screen that slides out from behind. Another device from HP, dubbed the ‘HP Firefly with Voodoo DNA' comes with a multi-touch touchpad and dual displays - a large 17.1 inch LCD and a smaller second 4.3 inch LCD.

The Orange Goo That Could Save Your Laptop:

[quote=", post:, topic:"]
A British company has patented what can only be described as an orange goo that could save your laptop or iPod after a nasty fall. The amazing material is soft and malleable like putty, but the substance becomes solid instantly after impact. You can punch your fist into a ball of the material sitting on a desk and not feel a thing, according to the staff at PC Pro who have been testing the material, called 3do. It's being used by the military, the US downhill ski team, and motorcycle clothing manufacturers to provide impact protection in the event of a crash. However, it's also appearing in protective cases for laptops and MP3 players.
