Twin Screen laptop

Why put up with just one display?

Twin Screen laptop

This is not some kind of Photoshop tomfoolery, this is the Acer Iconia, a game-changing development.

With touchscreen technology and tablets all the rage, this machine, available early next year, is the world’s first laptop to be boxed up without a keyboard. And this is no gimmick. This is a serious piece of technology. Powered by Intel i5, it runs on Windows 7 and is a country mile ahead of its rivals when it comes to multi-touch technology. Naturally, two screens require double the power so there is a compromise to be made on the battery life, which is three hours. Believe it or not, in three years’ time, this is what your MacBook Pro will look like.
