It has been two years since we last spotted the Spacebook monstrosity that gScreen, a small Alaskan, had intended to build. The good news is that it’s out now and available for pre-order, and that the specs have also been upgraded since we last saw it (thank goodness).


For those who are wondering what the gScreen Spacebook is about, it’s basically a laptop that comes with dual monitors. When we say dual, we don’t mean one full-sized monitor and a smaller external display, but rather two full fledged 17.3-inch monitors that feature 1920 x 1080 resolutions each. It works by sliding on top of each other, so you will have the choice of having one screen, or you could pull it out and get two screens instead.

Of course, having two monitors built into your laptop will make it anything but light, and the gScreen Spacebook is no exception, weighing in at 10 pounds and reportedly sporting a thickness of 2-inches. The specs have been upgraded from the last time we saw it and will come in two options, with the entry level model starting at $2,395 and will be featuring the Core i5-560M processor, 4GB of RAM, and a GeForce GTS 250M GPU with 1GB of VRAM. The more expensive model will upgrade you to the Core i7-740M CPU and 8GB of memory, with the rest of the specs supposedly remaining the same, and will cost you $2,795.

It will also feature a DVD drive, three USB ports, a six-in-one card reader, as well as a microphone, headphones, Ethernet, FireWire, and eSATA jacks along with a HDMI port for what we’re assuming, a third screen, although we’re not sure the GPU would be able to support that.

Granted these aren’t exactly the most groundbreaking specs (with the processors being of the previous generation) you can find on a laptop, and it does seem to be a more expensive alternative to buying an external monitor, but we’re guessing it will be good for those who require dual-screens and who are constantly on the move. If you’re interested in getting your hands on the gScreen Spacebook, the laptops are available for pre-order at gScreen’s website.
