Default Re: Dual-screen laptops

Lenovo already has a Dual Screen laptop out..

Dual Screen laptops is a pretty badass idea, IMO. Lenovo did a great job on this laptop. I'm a dual screen monster, just about every computer I use at home has dual screens, I can't imagine doing HW without it.

This is a notebook we're talking about. Portability is key.

If you need a dual monitor setup, buy a desktop.

Yes, generally with a laptop, you want lightweight. But this is a specialty idem, which is why we are only seeing one or two. The people who would buy this are the people that would need it at the expense of the weight. Kinda like buying a one-ton diesel pickup instead of compact car.

Most laptops come with vga and/or s-video and HDMI ouputs anyway, you could hook it up to any monitor or tv you want then. Seems stupid to have a heavy and thick laptop like that. Some laptops are heavy enough as it is.
