Woah woah woah, aside from this being a nice notebook, is this the dual display touch screen that is mentioned in the quote?  I want to see these dual screens. 

[edit] Well, you guys set off my curiosity.  Anyone looking for the dual touch screen can find it here.  And I must say it is pretty awesome by the looks of it.  Except for them not doing a great job modding the software for it.
