You remember the really cool dual-monitor MSI netbook? We first saw it earlier this month at CES 2010. This unique take on the netbook sports two 10" monitors, one of which acts as a keyboard with haptic feedback. When we first saw this new machine, the assumption was that it would run on Windows 7. Now an interview with Laptopmag shows that this tablet could launch sporting Chrome OS.

MSI hopes to launch their new netbook later this year, in Q3 or Q4. They are shooting for 4-5 hours of battery life, which is really about all you can expect out of a netbook with two screens. MSI is gearing it to work as an e-reader/netbook with a big push on multi-tasking. MSI may also be bringing a 7" dual-screen tablet/netbook to market.

MSI is still evaluating whether or not to launch their netbook with Chrome OS or Windows 7. Multiple different models with different operating-systems may also be launched. No information on pricing is out yet, but more details should emerge as we get further into 2010.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
