Panasonic updates its twin-screen PC

Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd. unveiled new models of its twin-screen desktop PCs, which are designed for use in situations such as presentations and customer service counters where more than two people view the screen from different positions. The new model features two LCDs (liquid crystal displays) which can be rotated vertically or horizontally, the company announced last week.

The Panacom LCW CF-82K, which are aimed at the corporate market, is equipped with two 15-inch (37.5-centimeter) LCD panels which can be placed in different positions. For example, one can be positioned in front of the PC user, while the other can be aimed at a person sitting opposite, or they can be stationed side-by-side. These panels can be also rotated vertically or horizontally.

The CF-82K PC carries Intel Corp.'s Celeron 1GHz processor, 128M bytes of memory, a 20G-byte hard disk drive, two TFT (thin film transistor) XGA color LCDs and a Fast Ethernet interface, the statement said.

The products will be rolled out from March 8 onwards in Japan and there is no planned date for overseas sales, said Akira Kadota, a Matsushita spokesman. The suggested retail price is around ¥260,000 (A$3430), he said.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
