    Definitely crazy -- and priced accordingly, I'm sure!

    Maybe I am slow today, but what does this mean? A second 10.6 diagonal screen?

    Yeah, I'm confused too. It's not that area on the bottom right palm rest, is it? I thought that area was for using one of those digital pens...

    That's a little bizarre. I have heard of dual screen being pushed out to some laptops with the newer chipsets. However, it was usually a 1-3" LCD that had the time, a logo, or media playback status; not a 10.6" diagonal screen.

    My best guess is that it has an extra thick double sided display. Although I have no idea how this would be of any use. If the 10.6" would flip out and serve as a second display for toolbars or something it COULD be useful in theory. Although I can't see any sane person buying this model (it weighs over 10 pounds w/o an AC adapter).

    Heh...It literally defines the term "niche market"...

    I've seen a dude carry his home computer (imac or somesuch, motherboard in display box) to an internet cafe (not once)
    so carrying won't be too much of an issue for some

    Well, I guess if one can't afford a second computer which is a laptop...

    I can't say anything...Back in the heyday of "transportables" (say, the early 80's), I used to lug around a suitcase sized MS-DOS box called the Corona. It was basically a PC CPU with a handle (said handle having the ergonomics of a knife-blade), a 9" monochrome CRT, and two 360K 5.25" floppy drives (had to pay extra for the second drive! ). Weighed 36 pounds of sheer shoulder-wrenching agony...

    Compared to my Corona, the Osborne, the Eagle, the Kaypro, and other such illustrious progenitors of "laptops," the person you see at the Internet cafe probably gets off light...
