Acer Dual Screen Laptop Priced at €1500 in Spain

Of course, looking at a device that packs two 14-inch multitouch displays and a Core i5 CPU, you know it's going to be expensive.  However, considering there isn't really anything like the Iconia already available, it was a case of 'your guess is as good as ours' when it came to estimating a price tag for the Iconia.

Thanks to a spokesperson from Acer Spain, we know a little more about how much the company is going to be charging for the device. The Iconia will supposedly hit Spanish retailers on January 28 with a €1,499 ($1,984 at time of writing) price tag.

Of course, it's unlikely that Acer will charge U.S. customers the equivalent amount in dollars (it's also likely UK customers will get robbed), but we wouldn't be surprised if the company just swapped out the euro sign for a dollar sign for the North American market and charged us $1,499 here too. Time will tell, I guess.

    I just can't wrap it around my head what the practical use of this will be.
    A desktop I can understand some of us actually need multiple monitors.
    But what Acer seems to be doing with this laptop is simply trying to be pointlessly different to make appeal to the product.

    Looks awesome but I wonder if it has tactile or haptic feedback when you press the keys?

    :P I guess one shouldn't expect this kind of thing to be cheap, but then again people aren't really going to want to experiment with a $2000 pricetag...
