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.

  • 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
