One of the reasons I've always resisted a multiple-monitor setup is that the work habits which result wouldn't translate readily to notebook use and I spend so much time on the road. Lenovo's new dual-screen W700ds notebook (which the company rather pretentiously calls a "mobile workstation") partly overcomes that objection by offering a second slide-out 10.6 inch screen behind the main 17 inch display. Check out the video demonstration above to see how it works. There's some nice features here (including a built-in CF reader and a healthy 5 USB ports), though the weight would be an issue and at $8,199 for the cheapest model, I won't be buying one any time soon. Do you think we'll see more dual-screen notebooks, or is this a very specialised niche?
