The Acer Iconia 6120 is a little like a Nintendo DS, in that where you would expect input buttons you have another LCD.  Powered by an Intel Core i5 480M, an HM55 with IntelHD graphics powering the two 14" 1366 x 768 displays.  Benchmark Reviews demonstrates using it as both a dual display laptop and as a laptop screen and a touchscreen keyboard.  Check it out.

"We've seen little innovation in laptop design in the last few years. Most companies seem to think that using a brushed aluminum finish or adding Intel's latest mobile CPU is all they need to do to freshen a product line. Still, Acer's not the first company to introduce a laptop with dual screens; the short-lived Toshiba Libretto W100 comes to mind, and gScreen Corporation's Spacebook has been touted since 2009, although it's still not available at the time of this writing. The Acer Iconia 6120, though, is a computer you can buy right now. Its dual screens offer new capabilities but come with some drawbacks as well. Benchmark Reviews takes a look at this unique laptop to see if it's worth your consideration."

Hmm.. It's a nice concept but they'll have to pry my hardware keyboard from my hands with the Half Life 2 crowbar ;). If they released, say, a 10" laptop with dual screens and an awesome digitizer, I might be interested in using it like the MS courier that never came out :)

I agree with you on this. I think it is incredibly interesting but there is no way I can write an article on this.

And this comes from someone who has tried on iPads...
