The Acer Iconia 6886 i5-480M is the first laptop tablet. It is also the first to have dual screens.
The Acer Iconia 6886 has a second generation dual core Intel Core i5 with a speed of 2.66, a total of 4 GB of DDR3 RAM, and 640 GB of hard drive space. The graphics are integrated Intel HD graphics.
The display has 14 inch dual multi-touch screens. The top screen is your desktop. The bottom screen is the heart and soul of the controls for the computer.
The Iconia 6886 has built in LAN capability along with built in wireless capability; 802.11 b/g/n. As far as ports go, it has 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 port, 1 audio out jack, 1 VGA port, and 1 HDMI port with HDCP. It also has a front facing web cam.
The two touch screens have HD features enabled and they are at a resolution of 1366 x 768 and have multiple touch features. Typing would be entirely touch screen based. Apart from the typing benefit, you could also use the double screen feature to view a document in its full length something which you had to initially accomplish through moving the scroll keys. With the double touch screen you can extend the page for better viewing. Moreover, you can have two different apps running at the same time on the two screens.
In order to get some functions working, you would have to learn a few symbolic gestures that are recognized by the touch sensitive screen. This is in the instructions manual. A strong grabbing gesture on the bottom touch screen would enable the Acer Ring Media player to pop up. Similarly different gestures used towards the touch sensitivity screens would bring up different feature sets.
You are also given the option to rotate the media ring to give you more functionality towards other functions such as a favorite social networking site, audio, video, pictures and browsers. You can also create your own unique gestures from the Gesture Editor.
The device though, suffers from slow processing. Also, it is great for people who don’t tend to use the keyboard much, but for professional writers and keyboard users, this laptop could be a disappointment as you really cannot type virtually for long end documents. It is more of an advanced tablet rather than a full fledged laptop.
It also lacks a dedicated graphics card so don't expect great gaming results.
The battery life of the device is bad. The device possesses a 4-cell lithium ion battery that powers two LED displays. Pushing the device to its limits, the battery barely lasted an hour. But use the device conservatively and you may be able to touch the three-hour mark.
Bottom line, the Acer Iconia 6885 is not yet a full-fledged laptop; it is a “concept based device” which means that it still has to go through numerous experiments and experiences. So, you could wait for a while and use the traditional laptop until Acer makes the laptop a perfect usability device.
