gScreen's Dual-Screen SpaceBook Touches Down on Earth

Once you add a second monitor to your desktop PC, you'll wonder how you ever managed with but a single display up to that point. And just try using a notebook after you've grown accustomed to rocking a pair (or more) of big screen monitors. It's not easy, and it's also one of the reasons why we're so intrigued with gScreen's new SpaceBook.

The SpaceBook is a 17-inch dual-screen laptop with two full size 17-inch displays, each one supporting Full HD (1920x1080) visuals. Did you catch that? This thing has TWO 17-inch displays! There's a trade-off in portability with the SpaceBook checking in at 10 pounds, which is 30 percent more than your average 17-inch laptop. It also costs more than most traditional 17-inch laptops, though neither of these tradeoffs are obscene.


If you reserve yours now, the price for the Core i5 model is $1,899, which includes:
  • Two 17-inch displays
  • Intel Core i5 560 processor (2.66GHz)
  • 4GB DDR3-1333 memory
  • 500GB 7200RPM hard drive
  • Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 graphics
  • DVD burner
  • Windows 7 Home
There are higher end models to choose from, including one that's available for $2,099 on preorder. It comes with:
  • Two 17-inch displays
  • Intel Core i7 740 processor (1.73GHz)
  • 8GB DDR3-1333
  • 500GB 7200RPM hard drive
  • Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 graphics
  • DVD burner
  • Windows 7 Professional
The relatively weak graphics means the SpaceBook isn't going to take your dual-screen gaming endeavors to new heights, but for multi-taskers who can't live without multiple monitors, there's plenty of power here for day-to-day computing.
