    Great for multitasking while gaming, says HP. Second screen sits above keyboard deck.

    Here's a hands-on video from PC World, providing a good overview before any reviews become available.

    Interesting design for the dual screen, but I feel like it's probably just as easy to just use your phone. Also, what's going on with the black on either side of the screen, and a 1440 @120 or 144 Hz screen seems like it would make more sense than trying to drive a 4K @60, except maybe for content creation and editing.

    Don't talk cack, HP!!

    This ain't gonna change diddley-flippin'-squat, matey-boys...... This is the Logitech G19 all over again.
    All that's gonna happen is that someone (like me) will buy your double-screen thingy, a couple of games/apps will support it as a novelty, and then no beggar on Earth will go near it apart from a couple of Elite Dangerous players, and one or two diehards who feel the desperate need to justify the amount of time and money they put into buying and learning the SDK.

    And yes, I can already do some/most of what this thing does, on my nine-year-old keyboard screen... About the only really useful feature is the customisable display G19 applet in HWMon.

    I just wanted something more substantial to my argument than "Tasky's Spidey Senses say so"...

    Didn't Razer do one years back with a screen / touchpad combo?
