Proposed is a laptop computer with two hinges. A main
hinge as seen in the prior art would separate a lower
keyboard from an upper display assembly. A second
on one side of the display assembly, would unfold to
two screens. A forward-looking screen would function as
display as in the prior art, and a side-
secondary display would provide extra screen space in
high-end laptops intended to replace workstations. This
hinge could fold from the rear forward, allowing the
to be used in single-screen mode. (A switch in the hinge
would prevent others from seeing the second screen
in this mode of operation.) Another embodiment would
for the screen to fold from the front rearward. This
prevent the use of single-screen mode, but it would be
significantly more durable.

Neat two-screen loptap.

||Ooh! I want one of these. I wonder if a MacBook
could be modified in this way?
||Yes. "Take one hammer and one chisel ...."
||Multiple monitors on laptops never caught on mainly because they cripple your battery life and increase the weight.
