    That's a pretty great design. You can't really get a good idea of the laptop until you head on over to Gizmodo and check out the pictures they have. I can't wait to see future products from them as they advance and evolve more and more. One thing I would change is that big black bar separating the screens. Have the screens edge to edge, at least on the sides where they line up. But that's a pretty minor complaint.

    These things are going to cost an insane amount of money. lol
    People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.

    According to Engadget:
    "Inside, you'll have a selection of Core 2 Duos, 4B of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 900M GT graphics, and a 7200rpm drive -- all of which explain why it's expected to cost just south of $3,000."

    I'd like to see how this thing closes, battery life running 2 screens can't be that great either.

    lol oh man, it has to be HORRIBLE. They should just advertise it as a portable dual screen desktop that can run on batteries for ten minutes. lol

    The screens slide in, one behind the other, so that they can run as a single screen unit if desired.

    As for the battery life, it's no different in hardware from other laptops, with the exception of the second screen. And if it's using LED backlights, I dont think there'll be a noticeable difference.

    It's more like an add-on screen than a true dual screen setup. Although I would still love to have it! Perfect for watching a movie and talking to someone on MSN at the same time. :p
