Keats must have had a vision of the new Estari notebook when he wrote "A thing of beauty is a joy forever". "Today's announcement that Estari, Inc. ( https://www.Estari.com ) is accepting orders for their new model of the patented Dual Screen(TM) Laptop Computer will revolutionize the way professionals do work outside the office.
