Look, I’m using the word netbook loosely here, because I’d be shocked if Kohjinsha’s new laptop cost less than $800 if and when it came to market. But the company is showing off an awesome little concept device at CEATEC with two 10.1 inch LCDs that can sit side by side. If you only need a single screen, one folds behind the other and the device is about the size of a 10.1 inch netbook.
Each screen can handle either 1024 x 600 or 1366 x 768 resolutions. And the computer is powered by an AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 chipset and DirectX 10 compatible ATI graphics. it supports up to 4GB of RAM, runs Windows 7, and weighs less than 4 pounds.
Engadget reports that the laptop is a bit thicker than most netbooks, thanks to that extra display. It measures 1.7 inches at the thickest point, although it slims down to 0.75 inches at its thinnest.
I’m also guessing this machine will get roughly an hour of run time from a standard battery. The AMD MV-40 processor isn’t exactly known for its energy efficiency, and the LCD is typically one of the power-hungriest components of any netbook. So having two of them probably doesn’t help.
