      Has anyone seen the new Acer Iconia? It has dual touchscreens and okay specs as far as basic computer goes. It looks awesome, but I worry that if I bought it it would be more of a toy than a computer (this has also been my concern with tablets). I've read a few reviews on it, and a few people have said that the keyboard doesn't allow them to type fast enough. It's $1,000, give or take, so I'd really had to purchase it and then it sit around and only be used for play time.

      Never actually seen the new Iconia myself, but I believe Lunar Scorpio just bought one for herself and loves it. Although I don't think it's the same model you speak of. I however, bought an Asus Transformer and the keyboard dock for it. It's an android based tablet that converts into a mini android netbook. I can type fairly fast on it too :) Almost like a regular sized laptop :).

      I paid roughly $580 for both the tablet and the keyboard dock but now you can probably get both for a little over $350-400 if you look around for it. :)

      *Goes to google the Acer Iconia model you mentioned*
