Dual 17-Inch Screen SpaceBook Arrives For Pre-Orders

I can understand needing the extra screen real estate to accomplish more visually-intensive work, but I can't understand anyone who'd lug this behemoth anywhere. Because the gScreen SpaceBook is too much size and not enough Space Age to do you any good.

The SpaceBook's claim to glory is its massive dual 17.3-inch screen setup, which earns it brownie points for being the first of its kind. Certainly not the most graceful of beasts. And she's not built for comfort either, weighing about ten pounds. But, doomed to your desktop as it would be, it doesn't push the envelope with what's under the hood. Surprising, since you'd expect it to right?

The high-end model packs a quad-core Intel Core i7-740M processor, 8GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M video card. But no Sandy Bridge. No Thunderbolt. No Blu-Ray XL. Nothing really to justify its $US2795 price tag. While gScreen just made it available for pre-order, this old girl is already dead in the water. [gScreen via This Is My Next]
