Lenovo goes dual-screen with new notebook
Laptop with secondary screen built-in announced by Lenovo at CES.
As rumoured in December, Lenovo has today unveiled at CES what it says is the first dual-screened notebook.
The ThinkPad W700d, billed as a mobile workstation, features a conventional 17-in LCD with a 1,920 x 1,200 resolution, but also sports a 10.6in screen that slides out from the right and can be angled by approximately 30 degrees. The resolution of this display is a 1,280 x 768, which is higher than the main displays of some notebooks.
The machine has the option of Core 2 Duo or even Core 2 Quad processors, with up to 4GB of RAM, and Intel Turbo Memory support. Fixed storage comes from a 64GB solid-state disk. It also features integrated colour calibration, and RAIDed hard disks.
With all this on board, not surprisingly the notebook comes in at a hefty 4.96Kg, and that's just on a single hard disk.
US pricing for one configuration was given at of $3,600 (2,481) but UK Pricing and availability of the notebook was not confirmed at the time of writing.
