I've used dual screens in the past (all windows laptops should be equiped to do this, all you need is a spare monitor), and it's very useful. You could full screen vids on one monitor, and a web browser on another. Text editor on one, then conveniently having the compiler on the other. For film class, it was very convenient having the movie on one monitor and msword on the other. Or for graphic designers who use a lot of windows, it's great to have different images to work with on different monitors. More desktop space to work with is always a good thing. If you are a computer user who doesn't use it for anything else other than word processing, surfing, and other simple tasks, this isn't for you.

I wouldn't go and buy a dual screen laptop though, but definitely plan on having 2 or even 3 monitor desktop set up once I can afford it.

Desktops desktops desktops - Dual Screen.

LAPTOPS!? I'd just hook em up to the desktop dual screens. =/ Laptop in the first place is meant for portability. Of course there are ppl that just put it at home as their desktop but...what % is that!?

If you can't imagine a reason for it to be useful or just think it would be for gaming than probably don't do much on the computer other than myspace and facebook.

There is SOOO MUCH use with dual screens. I can't wait until I can get a new monitor set-up.

I can be doing school work, or photoshop work and have my myspace / facebook on the other screen. I can have photoshop open on one screen and then a tutorial on the other screen.

Putting this with a laptop is just incredible.

On a desktop for multi-monitor setup, it's already a staple. But for laptops, ok, I'm not an avid user of a laptop all the time, but for a multi-display laptop option, how viable of portability is that? Unless your laptop is stationary most of the time, which defeats the purpose of portability for laptops. Of course, there's the other option of ppl using laptops as desktop replacements.

It looks just as portable as a regular laptop. If room is limited, I'm sure you can just turn off one of the displays and use a single monitor.

It 'looks'. Bottom line, it's still another peripheral you have to carry around. I'd say this is for desktop replacement or some long-term use at a fix location or something...I'm not particularly a fan of lugging too many things for my laptop around. 1 Laptop, 1 AC adapter is heavy enough. =.= Not to even mention the laptop is 15", not 17". =.=

I'm not throwing the idea away ok? I love multi-displays, but for laptops, I really do not see(yet) the need. But it's an innovation.

Edit: I was under the impression it's an attachment. Now that I re-evaluated that it's not, I wonder what's the weight combined with the other screen? Ignore my 'seriousness' above, as I was on the wrong impression.

Great looking computers! But for practicality uses, I don't think it'd be a fit for my needs right now. It'd be great if someone gave it as a gift though.

Hah no worries. It's just the internet.

I don't think it'll weigh that much more than a regular laptop. An extra display shouldn't add that much. One realistic concern though is battery life/power consumption (and might as well add in temperature too). Displays take up most of the battery if I'm not mistaken, so two displays would demand a lot. It would need to be extremely efficient and strong battery.

:P

Yeah the battery is my main concern too now that you said it.
