Lenovo's W700ds proved that having multiple screens on a notebookwasn't completely infeasible, though the lackluster response to itsimultaneously proved that there's not too much pent-up demand outthere for such a device. Sure, it's a novel concept, but the incredibleexpense and the added weight puts most prospective buyers off.

All that said, there's always room for one more rival to try and tweakthings within a niche in hopes of making something mainstream, andthat's exactly what gScreen is looking to accomplish. The Alaska-basedoutfit has just issued press photos of its upcoming Spacebook, adual-screened notebook that does more than just provide a secondarydisplay to accompany a primary display. Instead, the G400 Spacebookpacks a pair of same-sized screens: two 15.4" LED displays.

The device will be powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and will beavailable with Windows Vista--though, we have to wonder if it won'tstart shipping with Windows 7 later in the year (we sure hope so!).Obviously aimed at designers, video editors and photographers, thistwin-screened machine should make those who typically utilizetwo-screen desktop environments feel more at home. Beyond that, detailsare few and far between, with gScreen only confessing that it'll shipin the United States "later this year" and to the UAE and Saudi Arabiashortly thereafter. Sadly, we still don't know how expensive it willbe, though we're sure it'll be well over $2000. So, anyone interestedin toting this beast around just to have two screens on the go? Wouldyou be interested if it were less than $2000?
