Dual Monitor Notebook
The notebook PC maker, Kohjinsha (工人舎), has brought out a surprising new feature on its latest compact notebook. It has 2 screens. Despite being a small machine, they have managed to squeeze in a dual monitor display to this well priced model.
The notebook, model number DZ6KH16E, has 2 10.1″ screens with resolution of 1024 x 600. Wow, that is 2048 x 600 pixels if you take it all the way across. Recently, screens are getting super wide aren’t they. Does anyone read down the page anymore?

This model goes on sale on Dec 11, 2009, so expect to see it appearing at your local electronics store soon. Pricing is said to be about YEN 79,800 or approximately US$800.
Have a look at this demo from YouTube.
Other features include a web camera, SD memory card reader, 1GB memory, 160GB hard disk memory, biometric fingerprint security, gigabit Ethernet with built in wireless LAN and a port to use electronic pointing devices. All of this in just a B5 size weighing 1.84 kilograms. The standard OS is Windows 7 Home edition.
Here is a clip from the Kohjinsha website showing the product
If you can’t get to the local electronic store, then maybe pick one up from Amazon Japan. I can’t see this showing on the US site yet.
