Acer Iconia 6120 Touchbook review

theverge.com
30 January 2012
  • Summary: The Iconia Touchbook is more akin to a proof of concept or a prototype: some great ideas skinned over a platform that can’t handle it (Windows 7) and built into hardware not ready for prime time. The Touchbook, as Acer calls it, weights 6.2 pounds and measures about 1.3 inches thick when closed, which is all just about on par with the Dell XPS 15 equipped with a 9-cell battery.
  • Pros: Dualscreen form factor is interesting, Virtual keyboard and Handwriting works
  • Cons: Two-hour battery life, Bulky, heavy form factor, Windows 7 still not touch-friendly

Acer Iconia 6120

PC Magazine
8 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The Acer Iconia 6120 is a unique and innovative take on multitasking, but the virtual keyboard and Acer's touch software pack aren't ready for prime time.
  • Pros: Dual screens equals lots of screen real estate. Innovative touch software bundle. Reasonably priced. USB 3.0 port included. Its TouchBrowser utilizes both screens.
  • Cons: Virtual keyboard will anger and flummox most typists. Big and heavy for a tablet or laptop. Bottom screen is hard to use under a bright light. Media card slot reader is an external USB attachment. Gesture editor and number of other utilities are too BETA to use. Paltry battery life. Lacks a good 3D chip for CAD and serious graphics designers.

Acer Iconia 6120 review

  • Summary: 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 specs and no optical drive. It's pretty heavy at 6 pounds, too. I already mentioned the missing card reader and Bluetooth.

  • Conclusion: Being a geek and a technologist, I love the innovation and quality of the Acer Iconia 6120. I also applaud Acer’s attempt at some custom software that makes the dual screen design more practical, enjoyable and useful. But as a practical pundit, I don’t think the Iconia is ready for the masses, nor are the masses going to see much use in this flashy bit of hardware.
  • Pros: Innovative design, decent price, excellent design and build., Innovative design, decent price, excellent design and build. Serious geek and cool factor. A dream come true for those who need multiple monitors on the road.
  • Cons: Paltry battery life, heavy, not a product for those who do lots of data entry., Paltry battery life, heavy, not a product for those who do lots of data entry.

Acer Iconia 6120

LAPTOP Magazine
28 March 2011
  • Summary: 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 keyboard is workable; and SocialJogger represents a fresh way to access social network information in a single place. Still, this notebook is heavy and its battery life is short.
  • Pros: Innovative touch software, Easy-to-use virtual keyboard, Strong overall performance, Quality webcam
  • Cons: Short battery life, Touch apps slow to load, No SD Card slot, Heavy

Acer ICONIA 6120 Dual-Screen Touchbook - 14 - Core i5 480M - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - 4 GB RAM - 640 GB HDD

CNET
29 March 2011
  • Summary: Unlike a lot of other unique proof-of-concept laptops, the Acer Iconia is fun to use and largely works as advertised. But it has a hard time answering the most frequent question we hear about it: why would anyone need a dual-touch-screen laptop?
  • Pros: The Acer Iconia's innovative dual-touch-screen design and virtual keyboard work better than you'd expect, and unlike other dual-screen PCs we've seen, this one has enough CPU power for everyday tasks.
  • Cons: Speed typists will find that the virtual keyboard has a hint of a lag, and its (virtual) touch pad is needlessly small. It's also saddled with last year's Intel CPUs, rather than the latest generation, which might have given it better battery life.
