It’s dual display laptop by Onkyo.Onkyo DX1007A5B is with AMD Athlon Neo CPU, 4GB of RAM, 320GB HD, and Windows 7 Home Edition and many more things….
We’ve known about Onkyo’s DX dual-screened netbook for quite awhile, but it’s another thing entirely to see it extend its two 10-inch screens in person. On display at the Microsoft booth here at Computex, the Onkyo is still a rebadge of the Konjinsha DZ that we saw at CEATAC last year.
The Onkyo DX1007A5B notebook is why I flew 7,800 miles to attend Computex. It doesn’t feature the fastest processor, or break new ground in terms of the platform. And to be honest, I didn’t even know Onkyo made PCs until I saw this system in the Microsoft booth. But this is exactly what I expected to find at the show, and it doesn’t disappoint.

Whether for business or leisure, laptops allow you to carry your information with you, all in a lightweight and compact design.
Hardware-wise, the system is nothing special: AMD Athlon Neo CPU, 4GB of RAM, 320GB HD, and Windows 7 Home Edition. But the cool thing is the displays, plural. Two 10.2-inch display mounted horizontally so you can extend your desktop horizontally. Since that would be kind of awkward to carry, they collapse down into a standard form factor for travel. but has a 1,366 × 768-resolution display rather than the Konjinsha’s 1,024 x 600. In our short hands-on time we found the screens to extend smoothly, but the hinge did feel a bit weak, though that could very likely be the result of being used and abused on the show floor.
We were able to drag windows to the second monitor without a problem, so if you were concerned that the learning curve would be too steep, fret not. The most interesting thing about the netbook is that it turns into a handheld device of sorts .
when you pull the screens back in, you can flip it around and hold it up. For some odd reason it doesn’t have a touchscreen, so you have to use an optical mouse on the side to navigate within Windows 7. If anything, the DX needs an internal upgrade since it still packs a first generation AMD Neo processor, but we’re sure that’ll come in time. See it all for yourself in the video after the break.
