Reviews for the Acer Iconia-484G64ns
It's not often that you come across a device that offers not one, but two bigger-than-iPad touchscreens, and is capable of running a full-fledged Windows 7 OS and robust productivity applications. Although its touch precision is nowhere near any iOS device, the ICONIA's multitasking ability still gives it an advantage. The dual screens and the Acer Ring application lend the notebook an oomph factor that makes the iPad and other Android tablets look boring. The current issues with the touch interface can be expected to fade away with the arrival of Windows 8. Having said that, the device has its limitations and lacks basics such as an inbuilt card reader. The battery is a downer, and people may not want to spend Rs 70,000 on this device. Long story short, the ICONIA-484G64ns will not replace traditional notebooks any time soon, but makes for a good alternative to the fancy MacBook seen on the CEO's desk.
