After spending some time with Lenovo's dual-screen wonder, the W700ds
, we were left with somewhat mixed feelings. Having two screens is nice, but at 11 pounds it's not something you really want to take anywhere -- certainly not onto the battlefield. That's just where the gScreen TITAN M-1 is supposedly headed, a ruggedized version of the decidedly rendery 15-inch dual-screen G400 notebook pictured above, intended to meet the military's MIL-STD-810F
conditions for operating in generally extreme conditions. Internally it'll be rocking an Intel QX9300
CPU (also found in Lenovo's W700-series), 4GB of memory, and 500GB of storage. This model and other non-rugged versions ranging from 13.3- to 17-inches are said to be releasing throughout the year, but we'll believe it when we see a photograph that wasn't whipped up in 3ds Max.
