Dual-screen laptop sees double

Price tag more than $4,000

Earlier this month we mentioned a prototype dual touch-screen laptop but didn't think we'd be seeing anything like it off the drawing boards anytime soon. Shows you how much we know.

Pennsylvania-based Estari started out as a software company but somehow ended up developing a patented dual-screen computer originally for the U.S. military and is now selling its wares to the public. The specs of its "2-VU" model aren't all that noteworthy--a 1.83GHx Intel Dual Core processor, 1GB of memory, a 60GB hard drive and no conventional keyboard or mouse, according to I4U News. But what makes it special, of course, are its two 15-inch touch-screen displays.

We still don't think it's a great idea to read the newspaper this way, but that's up to you. Just don't expect to get your $4,350 back if you drop it on the subway.
