One of the more interesting devices Acer had at their booth this year was a dual screen laptop that featured touchscreen interfaces.
The concept behind this new tablet is that it features two 14.1 inch touchscreens and has a virtual keyboard on the bottom one. It has a Intel Core i5 2.6 GHZ processor with 4 GB of RAM. It is running Windows 7 and you should have enough storage with the 640 GB HD. It also has a ton of ports with HDMI, USB, Ethernet, WIFI, stereo speakers and a mic. One of the more redeeming qualities on this new hybrid device is the resolution is killer at 1280 x 1024 pixels.
This new device falls into the exclusive category, you more or less would not buy this $1200 device unless you had something to prove. In the concept stage it looks interesting but it is not intuitive to type on the bottom screen. The battery life really suffers here too, it is around six hours and would feel most at home on your desk. It also has tremendously bad screen glare and felt like a giant dual screen mirror. It basically feels like two giant tablets glued together! This device is solid for the price and is better in the stats department then the Toshiba Libretto W100
