Post 532: A Two-Headed Linux Desktop called Kohjinsha DZ

What's better than a 

10.1 TFT display laptop 

that comes preloaded with Linux?

Make that a Dual Screen 10.1 TFT Display.

Best of all it's on sale now for ¥95,800 (about $1,110) with a Linux pre-load -- add

another ¥5,000 (about $58) for 32-bit Windows 7 Home Premium. For that you get a

1.6GHz AMD Athlon Neo with RS780MN chipset and ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics,

802.11b/g/n WiFi, 3x USB, a 3-in-1 card reader, 1.3 megapixel webcam, 1GB

memory (expandable to 4GB), and 160GB 5,4000 hard disk with claimed 4.5-hours

"max" of battery power (1.1V, 5200mAh) -- likely far less in real-world usage. Ships

worldwide ($60ish for US or €50ish for European delivery) in 3 weeks if you order

Dual Multi-touch Screen FaceOff 

from Dell and HP


Dell and HP, HP and Dell. The United States' two biggest computer hardware

manufacturers, and two of the world's top three, have tended to match each other

step for step, so it's no surprise that Dell's recently released SX2210T was quickly

followed by a Compaq L2105tm from its closest rival. Measuring 21.5 inches each,

with 1920 x 1080 resolution, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, and optical multitouch technology

under their chunky bezels, these two models represent the biggest mainstream push

for touchscreen computing yet. Functionally identical to standard monitors, they offer

the added benefit of letting you input your heart's urges and desires using swipes,

gestures and flicks, and we've plucked one of each panel to see how this all plays

out for ourselves. Join us after the break, won't you?



And Last, but Not Least a HUD for your Jalopy, coming Real Soon Now...
