Like a lot of people who work online, I am a multi-tasker by nature. At my home office I have my desktop set up with two monitors. One is for writing/photo-editing, the other is for my Internet windows and chat screens. When I work from my netbook, things slow down noticeably because I have less digital workspace to play around with.

That's why this new Intel concept computer (thanks Electronista!) has me so excited. It's nicknamed the "Tangent Bay", and it consists of a normal notebook with three OLED multi-touch screens added to the main body, right above the keyboard. All four screens are interconnected. You can queue up media on one to play on the others, and you can drag and drop windows from sub-displays to the main screen or vice versa.

Currently, there are no "for market" products underway using the Tangent Bay technology. Hopefully someone will pick it up shortly and give Intel's latest brainchild a go, because I want it so badly I can taste it.

If this product comes out, I wouldn't expect to see it price between $1000-$2000, depending on the hardware it packs. Three OLED screens don't come cheap, and neither do any multitouch laptops. Still, for those of us who are used to a multiple monitor set-up at home, this could prove extremely useful. The question is, are there enough of us to make a market?
