And I have to contradict one of the reviewers here, the machine is very fast and I have noticed few bugs. The machine booted up the first time just fine, with no issues and the keyboard appears after a few seconds. I also have not noticed any unusual warmth.
But that doesn't mean all's perfect. There's the unexcusably missing bluetooth and multimedia card/ExpressCard slots. Also, while they give you easy access to the inards, via an easy to remove bottom access panel, that reveals an empty PCI Express card slot, there are no antenna leads. The European version of this system includes broadband, but without antenna leads, the slot becomes useless for USA upgraders who might want to use a CDMA broadband card or even a bluetooth card. There are ways to add your own antenna via third party solutions, but these usually don't work well. And, as others have mentioned, the poor battery life is compounded by the fact that the battery is inconvenient to replace. The bottom access panel must be removed to expose the battery release latches. Not difficult, but the extra step of removing the bottom access panel is unwelcome, especially in a cramped space like an airplane.
I am very pleased with the performance of this laptop. I am used to working on dual screen systems at home and at work and it is only natural that this capability be extended to my laptop. But the system is missing some basic features, like bluetooth and multimedia cards, that are common on even a low end laptop.Read more ›
Me, I'm a software developer, and am working on a few ideas for projects I wanted, and have learned some technical limitations. At this point, only one screen gets touches at a time, and my application only gets a single touch event on the lower screen; although I know that acer's stock scrapbook application definatly can recognize multiple points. Also, the WM_TOUCH information that is received does not have the width/height of the touches.
The touch surface itself is Cypress.
Someday it will be a good platform. I find it relatively easy to type on the surface except the keys my pinkies hit - my finger span is wider on my pinky than other fingers - would be nice to scale the keyboard in sections. Also from habit of touch typing, hitting the shift or control keys, I end up folding a finger back so my nail hits the screen instead of fleshy capacitive detectable material.
THe keyboard doesn't behave the same way a keyboard does - that is it doesn't send the key press when you are holding the key down, it waits until you release the key then sends a single down-up message. This makes WASD keys unusable for moving in a game.
A single touch doesn't always resemble a mouse click to games, so even piloting menus can be difficult.
I imediately upgraded the built in memory to 8 gigs ddr3 1333, as this will improve multitasking functionality and provide almost desktop performance. I may invest in a faster system drive at a later date, I would not recomend ssd as there is only available drive bay, and I'm sure a 7200 rpm will provide a serious performance boost, as the 5400 rpm drives can lag at times. Not that Im not impressed with the standard 5400 rpm drive, it runs as fast as the last generations 7200 rpm, the buss speed is quite impressive!
I highly recomend investing in ObjectDock as these can add some the missing functionality from not having any hardware interface. It also alows for a far more comfortable experiance, being able to switch applications without need for the built in solutions, and not to mention, compleatly customizing your experiance. RocketDock is a free choice but does not allow task switching. The built in solutions are usable, but task switching can get tricky when both screens are in use. The keyboard is quite comfortable, especially for being a touchscreen, but I would not recomend it for heavy writing! I find this to be a "specialty" laptop and if you find yourself needing more destop on the go this laptop cannot be beat!Read more ›
I have a problem with the touch applications (touch music, touch video, touch picture etc). They wont see my network drive. I mapped a network drive to a drive letter, and when I go to browse my computer on the touch applications, the only thing that shows up is the C drive and the DVD drive if its plugged in. I sent Acer support a quick email about this situation and got a very prompt response from them. The response was the equivalent of the middle finger. I was told they only supported the hardware and for support with the Acer Touch software I could call a phone number and pay a per incident fee. Thanks but no.
Acer's terrible support aside, I do like the tablet. Unlike some reviews I have read, I have no problems with the keyboard at all. The touch mouse pad is a little sluggish, but I dont really need it when I can just touch the items on the screen anyway.
If you dont mind dealing with the quirks of the new software without any support from Acer, you may also enjoy the Iconia.
Update : Touch Screen Ghosts
Well I am less happy with this laptop each day. Often times one touch screen or the other will either quite working entirely, or will work eratically (ie the bottom touch screen will act like a huge inverted touch pad - istead of activating the keys on the displayed keyboard it moves the cursor on the top screen in an inverted pattern). The first time I contacted acer they suggested I do a restore from factory cd's. Instead I rolled back a few windows updates and it seamed to fix the problem.Read more ›
