Lenovo will unveil the first laptop supporting two LCD screens, ‘ThinkPad W700ds’ at the upcoming CES 2009. It has a 17-inch primary and a 10.2-inch secondary LED screen. Coming with the option of either Intel Core 2 Extreme or Core 2 Quad processor, the ThinkPad W700ds adopts a 8GB of RAM, 980GB HDD and Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M. It also offers about 2 hours of battery life. This laptop is going to be the king of all laptops. I don’t think Alienware can mess with that.
Lenovo’s Thinkpad W700 isn’t exactly thin or light, with its 17″ display, I expect it to be pretty heavy being that big. On top of that, it is going to have built-in graphics from Quadro? Those cards are immense! People usually use it on a desktop from what I know. It will have dual hard drives, and rated weight of 8.3 lbs.
ThinkPad W700ds (the “ds” stands for “dual screen”). From the right of the already large 17″ 1920×1200 display, users will be able to pull out a secondary, 10.6″ LCD with a 768×1280 resolution. eWeek’s photo gallery shows one possible application: in Adobe Photoshop, the ThinkPad displays the main image on the primary display and all the palettes on the secondary one.

Here is a sneakpeak video that shows you how the laptop will work:
