My System Specs

Default acer iconia

Buy Acer [ LX.RF702.122 ] Acer Iconia 6886 Intel Core i5 480 4GB 640GB 14IN Dual Multi-Touch Touchscreen WLAN WIN7 HP Notebook



woah, where did this thing come from? was this thing just released now or has it been out for a bit?

and why cant i find no full specs on the thing even on acer website?


i beleive its 2 1360 by 768 screens but i cant find nothing on gpu. Seems like a real decent price with that I5 . As someone who is in the market for an libretto i just might consider paying up for something like this even though i still prefer a libretto because it can work in portrait which i desperatly want for reading pdf files.

Cant find any recent reviews on the thing with the exception of first look stuff a from few months ago

whats the scoop on this thing? any other dual screen tablets due out soon?

First few initial thoughts.

1) No optical drive
2) Battery not EASY to remove at all
3) Bottom cover is a neat idea to access everything from the bottom including the cmos battery
4) Screens fingerprint SOOOOOOOOOOO easily
5) No tactile feedback from onscreen makes unit ackward to type on
6) Writing recognition is really good
7) Not being able to use the lower screen as a touchpad annoying
8) Ability to customer the keyboard look on the bottom screen is interesting.

Ask me anything you'd like to know and I'll provide an answer.

got a few, appreciate the insight

what gpu does it use?

whats the battery life specs as by in the manuel?

is it much bulkier\heavier than a normal 14 inch laptop?

bluetooth i assume, how many usb?

i think i already know the answer to this but no portrait funtionality?

am i going to be able to play an old school RTS or RPG on one screen while having an internet open on the other?
