Acer W500 is a Tablet and a Notebook

Tablet computers are experiencing a golden age, with new models being introduced regularly. One of the neat things about this period is all the experimentation occurring with different form factors and feature sets. Many people feel that touch-screen tablets with no keyboards will someday become more popular than notebook computers.

Hands-On Review of the Acer Iconia-6120: the World's First Dual Touch Notebook

What does the world’s most advanced dual touch-screen computer have in common with a plain old bicycle? You don’t just hop on a bike and zoom away the first time you try it.

Aspire to Own a New Acer Notebook

I have long been a fan of Acer notebook computers.

Lenovo: If a Computer Were a Hummer

Consider it a heavy-duty portable workstation for the photographer, designer, video editor or architect who spends far too much time tweaking pictures. The Lenovo ThinkPad W701ds (the "ds" stands for dual-screen) features a 10.6-inch screen that slides out from under the wide 17-inch display, both LED backlit. There's an integrated Wacom digitizer tablet. An nVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M GPU compliments the 1.73GHz Intel Core i7-820QM processor.
