It is necessary to pay tribute to the courage of the Ukrainian representative office of Acer, which took such a step - its Iconia notebook equipped with two touchscreens is certainly beautiful and will attract attention due to the lack of a keyboard, but it will cost skyrockily expensive - the price of more than 2000 dollars today only Sony and Apple (well, and frankly gamers notebook Acer Ferrari and Asus Lamborghini). The appearance of the novelty is openly fashion image for Acer but there is a great chance that the gg editorial staff will have to discard the laziness to shoot a video with this beautiful device. What have we learned about the Acer Iconia? Both its 14-inch displays with a resolution of 1366x768 pixels are protected by a thin, durable glass, produced using Gorilla Glass technology. That one of the three USB ports supports specification 3.0. That both screens are capable of recognizing up to 10 simultaneous touches each. That the shell Acer Ring (see the circle in the picture? It's it) is called at any time, if you put five fingers on the screen and squeeze them with a pinch. And the keyboard can be called simply by placing both palms on the bottom display. Curiously, the virtual keyboard is smarter than the hardware keyboard and supports predicative text input. The manufacturer reminds that two screens allow using Acer Iconia as a tablet (although there is no information as to whether it can open 180 degrees, but theoretically it is possible). And simultaneously work with two full-screen applications. And when working with web pages or documents, you can immediately use both displays, thus increasing the resolution of the image to 1536x1366 pixels. The novelty is expected to be sold in January-February, the estimated price is 16,999 hryvnia.
