A nomadic nerd’s wet dream

by

The world today keeps all of us pretty damn busy.  With work, school, kids, volunteering, extra curriculars or whatever other various activities absorb the hours of our days we just don’t spend as much time at home as people used to.  Its because of this that laptops are becoming more and more mainstream.  You can take them to class, to the park, to the coffee shop, etc.  One of the big restrictions of laptops is their size.  They can’t be to big otherwise the becoming inconvenient to lug around and thus loses its purpose.  Because of their generally small demeanor their screens aren’t necessarily ideal for certain uses. (gaming and design projects are the two things I tried to do on mine that were gimped by the screen)  Now maybe everyone doesn’t share my opinion.  Maybe you can edit photos with ease or raid an entire instance without giving your 15 inch monitor a second though.  But I can’t!  Or I can, just not as well as I’d perfer.  “What the hell is all this leading up to?!”  You ask.  Well….  a laptop with larger screen space.  Not a larger screen, but rather two screens.  You heard me right, a laptop with two screens.

Drool away…..

This is the Lenovo ThinkPad W700DS.  It weighs a hefty 11 pounds and its main screen measures in at 17 inches.  Its second screen is quite a bit smaller at 10.6 inches.  Its miniscule size doesn’t make it ideal for web pages or other screen hogging applications but it is great for coralling IMs, your itunes or even the toolbars for Photoshop, Illustrator, etc..  Its equipped with a dual 200-GB hard drives and 2.53 GHz Core 2 Extreme. Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M GPU, 4 GB of RAM and the 64-bit version of Windows Vista.  Its battery lasts around an hour and a half which isn’t too bad considering the hardware its powering.

Needless to say, I want one of these!  Also, needless to say, I’m not even close to being able to afford it.  However if anyone gets one I’d love to hear about your experiences with it and how it handles.  Though I imagine that most of you will remain as my fellow droolers.
