Last time we saw the GScreen dualscreen Spacebook laptop it was sporting two 15.4-inch screens and promising to be ready by the end of 2009. Obviously the small Alaska-based company missed that cut off, but we're told there's a reason -- and it's an interesting one at that. Apparently the two 15-inch displays didn't provide enough screen real estate, and the company has now opted to use two 17.3-inch screens. We're not sure that move makes the most sense considering that this thing is supposed to be mobile, but we don't claim to know what people want from dual screen workstations. What does makes sense is that the laptop has been updated with new specs, including a 2.66GHz Intel Core i7-620M processor, 4GB of RAM, a 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTS 150M GPU and Windows 7 Professional. The entire rig still looks rather thick in the pictures below, but GScreen's CEO Gordon Stewart assures us that it won't weigh more than eight pounds. The revised plan is to sell the long-awaited machine through online retailers, including Amazon and Buy.com, starting in May for $2,895. Of course that's if they don't decide to go with two 20-inch screens in the meantime. Our fingers are crossed this time around.
