Acer are really thinking ahead with this new laptop with the obvious graduation of a dual screen multi-touch Acer Iconia laptop. It has matching touchscreen's for top and bottom making keyboards and touch pad redundant. It supports 10-finger multi-touch and you can use either screen as your virtual keyboard. The Acer ring seems to have replaced the touchpad as it is a segmented wheel interface that gives multi-finger access to media and various Acer apps.
The Iconia incorporates an Intel Core i5 processor that is supported by 4GB of memory and 640GB of storage. It uses Windows 7 Home Premium as its operating system. The only issue I have with the Acer Iconia is the asking price of £1,500 which is fairly costly for an laptop hat is only appealing because of its dual 1,366 x 768 touch screens.
