Summary: After about 6 months of usage, I have to say this is still probably the only laptop I would be bothered to buy. However this is only my own opinion, I hate the idea of mousing over to things, and I also hated the idea of having to exit out of or minimize other screens to get where I want to go. Unfortunately, unless you find someone to make you a custom motherboard with a better socket and faster ram support. You're going to be left behind.
Needed a new laptop and this one looked pretty cool.

Summary: Have had it 3 days now and slowly finding my way around it. Its not a laptop to take any were and expect to spend much time on with out useing the charger. Will not be listing to music or watching a move on the airplane. If I had known the battery was a joke and no CD/DVD player I would have pick up something different.
Pros: Touch screen very good and love the keyboard. Spill proof and crum proof.
Cons: Battery life is terrible. Theres no CD/DVD player. Must be a windows program but can't stand this little box for spell check that follows you around when ever you type something. Have to find out how to get it disabled.
Summary: With the original OS, Windows 7 home Premium, this machine was a capable business/office use laptop with the unique option to put two screens of content up at once. With Windows 8 Pro on it, it is greatly improved. The touch screens work out of the box (adding Acer's Win7 x64 drivers helps with fine-grained precision).
Summary: EDIT 120816: WARNING WARNING WARNING - Windows 8 Release to Manufacturers (RTM) Enterprise drivers do not work for the Acer Iconia. You do not get the option to select a second touch screen. (Actually, this seems likely to be a bug in Windows 8 to me. Surely many people will have multiple touch screens attached?) You cannot flip the orientation of either tablet individually.
Summary: It takes time getting use to the on screen keyboard. I use the keyboard on my phone and its not as easy. It has predictive text that you can turn on and off. It comes with 4gb of ram but I up'ed that to 8gb. The screens are very bright and crisp. There is one big cover on the bottom that you can use to open it up and get to the memory and hard drive.
needs some getting used to. otherwise, fantastic and fun to use!

Summary: no complaints other than that the keyboard does require the user to look down at the keys. that's a small price to pay when considering that it is unlike any other laptop on the market. great when it comes to web page display and touch interface. in all, a handsome device that's fun to use.
Summary: While the dual screen configuration is more useful than I would have originally thought, the Iconia 6120 is not for everyone. Its especially not for people who do a lot of writing. While the virtual keyboard works well, it is not the same as a physical keyboard. And I have to contradict one of the reviewers here, the machine is very fast and I have noticed few bugs.
Una vera novità. Niente tastiera, doppio schermo, ma a che prezzo

Summary: Acer ha ufficialmente annunciato al CES 2011 il touchbook Iconia, che è un dispositivo a due schermi a metà tra notebook e tablet. Due schermi dicevo? Esatto. Due schermi da 14 pollici, chiusi a libro, che se ben gestiti, potrebbero essere il punto convergenza tra i due mondi. Le potenzialità? Non dover più guardare ai tablet come a "oggetti incompleti" dal punto di vista prestazionale. Per ora, sembra davvero un grande Nintendo DS. Divertente, bello, interessante.
