Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Acer Laptops, Laptop News

Good news for all who love a good leak! An unannounced Acer laptop has been spotted in the wild. What’s more? The device comes with dual screens that measure 15-inch. More likely, the display screen will be used as the display while the other screen, of the same size, will be used as a replacement for the keyboard and trackpad.

It might seem that this not yet seen Acer laptop is huge. Well, it could be if it is carrying dual 15-inch screens. As usual, this leak too comes with the least information possible. The online community has been racking up their brains to decide the device’s features based on the pictures leaked alone.

Basically, the Acer dual screen laptop has the same concept as the Microsoft Courier and theToshiba Libretto W100 whereby the latter has only 7-inch screens. Experts are saying that this Acer laptop with dual screens will be released late next year. Looks like we will have to wait a long time for the full package!

Reviews

“The battery life could be better, and some netbook fans may decide that an 11.6 inch laptop is just too large to be truly portable. But during the two weeks that I’ve been testing the Aspire 1410, I’ve come to rely on it as a workhorse laptop that can handle almost any task I can throw at it. the Aspire 1410 has become the first laptop I grab whether I’m about to run out of the house, or just to the living room for some light web surfing.” (LiliPuting, 2009)

“If you like the portability of netbooks, but you want more power and a bigger screen in the same price range, the Acer Aspire 1410 is a very good choice. While identical in appearance, the Aspire Timeline 1810T lasts a couple of hours longer on a charge and offers more memory and hard drive space. However, that system costs $200 more. At $399—the same price as most premium 10-inch netbooks—the 1410’s dual-core processor, portability, comfortable keyboard, and over 6 hours of battery life make it a compelling choice.” (LaptopMag, 2009)

“Acer really hit the nail on the head with this Aspire 1410.  However, as with anything it is not perfect and will not fit everyone’s needs.  The touchpad is poorly designed as it is hard to tell the edges.  Acer support does not have the best reputation, if something goes wrong it could be a real hassle dealing with support.  And of course, while the Acer 1410 performs better than any netbook it’s still vastly under powered relative to more full sized laptops with 15-inch plus sized screens such as the HP Pavilion dv6t or Dell Inspiron 15.” (StudentBuyingGuide, 2009)
