WOW! Dual screen laptop from Lenovo

Multi-tasking road warriors and folks with split personalities will appreciate the new Lenovo ThinkPad w700ds, being shown this week at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Lenovo says it's the first dual-screen mobile workstation. The w700ds will have a 17-inch primary screen and a 10.6 inch secondary screen that slides out to the right.

The unit is no lightweight. It will weigh about 11 pounds and retail for $3,600.

OTOH, Lenovo is also improving its lightweights. For example, the S10 netbook ($350) has Quick Start, a function that lets you access frequently used applications faster. It has a 10.2-inch display, weighs about 2.4 pounds and comes in black, white, red, blue and pink.
