At A Glance

Though Acer did a decent job with the touch features, replacing the lower deck with a touchscreen is a poor trade-off.

Manufacturer’s Description

The Iconia-6120 14" Dual-Screen Touchbook Notebook Computer from Acer is a uniquely styled notebook computer. Bucking traditional deign conventions, the computer features two 14" LED backlit widescreen displays -- both with full support for multi-touch input! There is no physical keyboard or trackpad -- instead, you can type on a full-screen software keyboard and manipulate objects directly via the multi-touch gestures that are natively supported by Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).
