CEATEC: Kohjinsha packs dual 10-inch screens into laptop

Laptop will go on sale in Japan later this year for about US$800

Japanese laptop maker Kohjinsha is getting ready to ship a laptop that packs dual 10.1-inch LCD screens.

The Dual Display PC, which was on display at the Ceatec exhibition in Chiba, Japan, is based on a 1.6GHz Athlon Neo MV-40 processor from Advanced Micro Devices and will go on sale in Japan before the end of the year. The laptop should cost roughly US$800, the company said, adding plans to sell the laptop outside Japan have yet to be finalized.

The standout feature of the laptop are the twin 10.1-inch screens. One screen hides behind the other and when the laptop is open, they two screens can be pulled out so sit side by side. The aim is to pack as much screen real estate into a small form factor, Kohjinsha said.

Other specifications of the laptop include up to 4GB of RAM, support for 802.11n wireless networks, Bluetooth 2.0, and a television tuner.

The Dual Display PC wasn't the only new Kohjinsha device on display at Ceatec. The company also showed off its PA series pocket computer, which will hit the market later this year. Based on a 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 processor, the PA series will run Windows XP. The small computer has a 4.8-inch LCD screen, a QWERTY keyboard, 512MB of RAM and a 32GB solid-state drive. It will be priced at around $700, the company said.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
