    I'm buying this - $1200 is an aggressive price

    It looks awesome. But I would have to wait till the price comes down alittle. Seems very expensive. But so is everything when it first comes out. I will stick to my IPAD for now.

  • Too big - no keyboard

    From such a big thing I would expect a keyboard sliding out of something

    Love the concept. Originality of the kind we have expected from Apple. Even though I love my iPad I am regularly frustrated by some of it's built in limitations. I will definitely check out Acer's tablet.

    Great idea. I think the timing is right. Hopefully the software is solid, cause with no hardware buttons I can foresee a lot of frustration, but definitely something that looks interesting to me. Seems like there's some wasted space in terms of the keyboard not going out to the edges. Otherwise, seems like a solid piece of machinery.

    Do they have an Ubuntu or Android alternate yet? Winblows will be it's Achilles heel.

    Machines like this one will come into their own when flexible screen technology advances further, that will allow a continuous fold-able dual/single screen display with no center join.

    Very aggressively priced. Suggest give it a miss.

    Looks cool, but I'd like to do a hands on to see how the touch screen keyboard responds. Would definitely consider it for my next laptop purchase!

  • It's like the kno! =)

    ...Although the Kno's target market are students, and everything it has improves the studying and research experience (thanks to the Kno interface and note-taking features!).

    I think what I like about this Acer dual-screen is that interface and UX designers will have more options for simplifying the computing experience no matter what the application is. I think it can also be configured to imitate the Kno interface and capabilities, but it's also not limited to that type of use. The only thing I don't like is the weight, but they'll solve that eventually I'm sure =)

    I am on the lines of getting a mac book pro. The only thing that turns me off on this is that it is Windows! The price is about the same, so......I am debating now????
