A Look At The Acer ICONIA

Posted by Alan at 11:48 AM on January 7, 2011

You have probably seen or heard about the stunning Acer ICONIA notebook PC that was shown off on stage during the Microsoft CES presentation.  You couldn’t miss it – it was 14″ dual touchscreen beauty.  It had first been shown at an Acer event in New York last month, but information went dark after that until now.

Both of the 14″ screens are multitouch enabled.  The bottom screen can display content in addition to a traditional QWERTY keyboard or a variety of other types of controls.

Inside the inventive little PC is an Intel Core i5 CPU, up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, integrated Intel graphics, a hard drive up to 750 GB, and Windows 7 Home Premium.  For connectivity there are two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, HDMI, and VGA.

Early reviews from people who got their hands on it report that it is fast and responsive and typing is no different than on an iPad, but a bit more comfortable thanks to it’s notebook shape.
