Review Acer Iconia Dual Screen Tablet

 

Touchbook. The Iconia is the Ferrari in Acer's tablet campaign. W ...

Application performance ; Control concept ; Low waste heat ; Virtual keyboard/mouse

Narrow viewing angles ; No internal cardreader ; High weight & bulkiness ; Short battery life ; Long charge time ; No DVD drive ; Short manufacturer warranty

If you are accustomed to a tablet computer, you'll easily manage the Iconia and won't want a "real" notebook anymore

Acer Iconia 6120

 

Sporting dual 14-inch touchscreens and innovative software, the Acer Iconia 6120 makes Windows more touch-friendly, but its bulk and short battery life are turn-offs.

We've slammed a lot of Windows-based consumer tablets for not taking the touch experience seriously, so Acer deserves some credit for innovating here. The Acer Ring interface on the Iconia 6120 is a cool way to interact with the notebook; the touch...

Acer Iconia 6120 Dual-Screen Laptop

 

We've seen little innovation in laptop design in the last few years. Most companies seem to think that using a brushed aluminum finish or adding Intel's latest mobile CPU is all they need to do to freshen a product line. Still, Acer's not the first...

Unique dual-screen design ; Windows OS extensions from Microsoft and Acer make good use of dual screens, touch features ; Interesting collection of touch-enabled applications ; Decent CPU performance ; Included multi-format memory card reader

Large, heavy, and expensive ; Poor battery life ; No recovery disks included ; No internal optical drive ; Very poor graphics performance ; Lots of bloatware

Although we strive for objectivity here at Benchmark Reviews, please remember that each author perceives these points differently, and our conclusions and recommendations will necessarily differ from others. Also, prices can fluctuate and designs...

Expert Review

 

This device's dual 14-inch LCDs make for an unusual hybrid of notebook and tablet, but its design and battery life simply demand too many compromises.

Unique two-screen design, Customizable virtual keyboard, Good performance

Too big and heavy for traditional tablet-use scenarios, Poor battery life, Very hard to touch-type on

First Look: Acer Iconia review

 

Acer announced its brand new device, the Iconia dual touchscreen laptop, in New York City and Pocket-lint was in attendance to grab a First Look review of the new dual screen laptop.

Two screens, very futuristic, bottom screen can be used for keyboard, interactive menu or anything else

It's a virtual keyboard, it's expensive, do you really need it

When it comes down to it, we’re not sure if full touchscreen is the path of the future as far as laptops go

Acer Iconia 6120 review

 

The Acer Iconia 6120 laptop is one of those marquee, "halo" products meant to draw attention to the brand as much as to satisfy everyday computing needs.

If the Acer Iconia has one main problem, it's that the lower touchscreen comes with a whole lot of baggage. It makes the system thick, for starters. At 1.4 inches thick, the Iconia isn't huge, but it is considerably thicker than laptops with similar...

Acer Iconia

 

The Acer Iconia pioneers the new touchbook form factor, replacing the keyboard with a second display.

When the Acer Iconia first arrived at the office we weren’t sure what to think of the notebook-tablet hybrid. But after spending some time with the device and seeing firsthand just how nice it is to use its dual-touch interface, we’re staunch converts...
