gScreen Spacebook 17-inch notebook
Both screens offer full 1080p resolution

One of the things that keep a lot of people from working happily on a notebook is that many of them lack the screen space people get used to with a home or office on a desktop.

However, there are a few ways to get a larger screen on your notebook. You can use an external DisplayPort or HDMI monitor and there are some portable USB monitors as well. Another option has surfaced from a company called gScreen known as the SpaceBook. The notebook is the world's first dual display 17-inch notebook.

Each of the 17-inch screens has a 1920 x 1080 resolution and they sit side by side on the notebook. The machine allows you to 50% more work done than on a typical 17-inch notebook. The screens can be had with a glossy or a matte finish. The notebook weighs in at about ten pounds making it about three pounds more than the typical 17-inch notebook computer.

Inside, the machine features Windows 7, a Intel Core i7 processor with quad cores, 8GB of memory, and a 500GB HDD. A discrete NVIDIA GPU is included and the machine has a webcam, HDMI output, and a Super DVD drive.

The customer can also get the Trade-Back program free on the notebook. This program allows the user to trade their current SpaceBook in for a 50% discount on a new SpaceBook when the next version launches.

Microsoft's, Ben Rudolph reviewed the SpaceBook, stating, "...when I run across something that’s truly groundbreaking, something totally unique and never seen before, I get excited. Like really, really excited. And that’s exactly how I felt when I first got to use the gScreen... SpaceBook. The SpaceBook is unlike any laptop before it. Rather than have a single display, it has two that slide out from the center to create and amazing panorama display. Both panels are 17” full HD (1920 x 1080) glass, available in either a glossy or matte finish. It’s a really amazing design that’s really functional; the panels slide open and closed very easily."

The 17” SpaceBook will start shipping to buyers in November with prices starting at $1,899.

You can also hold it against them in their performance reviews.

"I upgraded your workstation to dual-screens. According to my proforma projections, your output was scheduled to increase by 100%, though through interpolation, a mean adjustment of 50% to the positive was guaranteed," The stern Boss said as he looked at an Employee lackadaisically sitting in a chair in his office.

"Your guarantees were wrong," Said the Employee, defiantly.

"No, but I can guarantee you right now that you are fired!" Screamed the Boss.

The perturbed employee casually looked their boss in his eye and thought pensively for a moment. Just as the boss began to look a bit listless due to his employee's perceived ineptitude, he spoke. "No, that's where you are wrong again. The only guarantee I've ever had working here is your foot constantly up my a$$!" He shouted, turning around, bending over and mooning the guy. "There, take a shot, you've been giving it to me all this time," Trying to make his best goatse imitation.

Yeah, that'll go over well.
