Once you've rocked out with dual screens on your desktop, you'll wonder how you ever managed to do anything with but a single display. If you find yourself in that category, you should probably stop reading, lest you suddenly feel hobbled by your notebook.
Coming soon, Alaska-based gScreen will release a dual 15.4-inch screen laptop dubbed the Spacebook. Aimed at professional designers, gScreen also has dual 16-inch and 17-inch models on tap, all of which sport full sized screens for the secondary display.
"We designed this knowing that many may not need the extra screen at all times," company founder Gordon Stewart told Gizmodo.
To address this, the secondary display will feature a sliding mechanism so you can tuck it away when not in use. Of course, the obvious downsides to having a twin-display notebook are weight (think 12 pounds or more) and battery life, so it will be interesting to see how gScreen tackles these potential roadblocks.
Stewart says he's trying to keep the price under $3,000 and hopes to have the Spacebook for sale through Amazon.com by December of this year.

MSI has applied its lightning technology to the GTX275. We've put it through its paces to see if it can add more pizazz to the equation than the MSI NGTX260 we looked at in July.
During the same year that you sat in a movie theater chomping on popcorn watching Marty McFly bend the time-space continuum, a computer manufacturer headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts laid claim to the first ever registered domain name: Symbolics.com.
You may recall Nordu.net as the first domain name ever created, which dates back to January 1985. But it wasn't until March of that same year that Symbolics.com would go through the appropriate DNS process to be the first domain ever registered, after which it remained under its original ownership for a quarter of a century. Now almost 25 years later, Symbolics.com finally changes hands following XF.com Investments' acquisition of the domain for an undisclosed sum.
It's unclear what the future holds for the Internet's first-ever registered domain name, or for Symbolics, which largely fell out of relevance long ago.
