    @JP Use your “11th” finger.

  2. I bet Star Trek fans will try to skin the UI to look like the control panels on the Enterprise. “Shields up!”

  3. I think kung mahilig ka pumorma at mapera ka baka bumili ka nito. Kung sanay ka sa conventional keyboard mahihirapan ka maka pag adjust dito at mahirap mag type.

  4. @lolipown:

    What I meant for standard specs are the RAM, processor, OS and most other components…

    The Toshiba Libretto W100 is a similar product, though it’s much smaller. I think it’s also being sold around PhP70k in SM Megamall. Products like these have the worst of both worlds: A laptop’s bulk with a tablet’s limited usability.

    Good luck (di pala official word ang “goodluck”) to Acer for finding a market for this. Toshiba didn’t find one. It’s priced at the high-end with low-end and middle-end market components.

  5. The question is, is this a hastily-made response to the iPad? It looks like it. A heavyweight with limitations, I’m not really so sure on what to do with it. It looks like a bigger version of Nintendo DS. I think the market is not yet ready for this unless a specific OS is going to run this thing.

    Im really concerned with that Intel HD Graphics..Tsk Tsk..typing on a touchscreen is not that bad for me if it has haptic feedback..siguro.

  7. “3000mAh 4-cell Li-ion battery”

    Common dude, is this good for 1 hour use only?
    Dual screen can slice off the operating hours of a 6-cell battery powered laptop into half, so, how much more if it is 3 cell only?

  8. ….buying this next week. I’m intrigued by this new form factor and is in the spirit of the Microsoft Courier (sayang na sayang). Villman’s discounted price is P67,500.00 (cash). It’s a good thing I got a load of freebies (two Sony Ericcs and a white MacBook) from Smart (planning to sell those to get an Iconia). I hate iPads and tablets, in general (because of the virtual keyboard and limited screen real estate) but in this case, it’s a fair trade-off (electro-mechanical keyboard vs. more screen real estate).

  9. It was recently awarded as “The Last Gadget Standing” di ba?

  10. okay na sana eh kaso Intel HD graphics lang. baduy. sana naglagay na ng dedicated :)

    …..finally bought one. It’s one heavy s.o.b. The dual screen and the U.I. overlay by Acer (on top Winhdows 7 64 bit Home Premium edition) works like a charm. Love the futuristic concept and the thinking behind it. The Core i5 works well but it would have been more premium had Acer added an SSD instead of the standard platter hard drive (half terra). Battery life is adequate (around 3 hours for moderate use and depending on the settings). Oh yeah, they forget to include an internal optical drive (not a deal breaker but would have been nice).

    As expected, Windows 7 is not a touch-centric O.S. (Windows 8 where are you?) but, as is, it works reasonably well (specially with the Acer U.I. add on). The touchscreen is sensitive (making touch typing a bit tricky) and responsive enough (hardly any lag). Build quality is quite good. Overall: I’m happy as a clam.

    Cool.. Pero gaya ng iba.. Pang porma lang din… Di ito ang notebook na talagang maisasabak mo sa maramig usage.. Kung paangasan lang din ng gadgets… I’ll go for apple. Looks can be deceiving ika nga.. :D
