We knew dualscreen laptops were the future after our Toshiba Libretto review
, but unfortunately for Toshiba theirs was a future attempted too soon. Acer, however, is apparently testing a rig that might be powerful enough to do the trick -- pictures bequeathed to Tech Review Source
purportedly show a 2.67GHz Intel Core i5 processor (likely a Core i5-580M
) with dual fifteen
multitouch screens, making both the Libretto and MSI's 7-incher
look positively dated by comparison. Sadly, the publication's source says this device is "still slow and buggy," so retail availability is probably a long while off, but now you can tell your friends you too saw the future and it looked reasonably good. Peep a couple more shots of the laptop at our source link while you wait for a frameless version
to pop out.
