Acer is the latest company to attempt to capitalise on the success of the iPad, with the launch of Iconia, a dual-screen laptop.

The laptop-tablet has two 14-inch displays, one of which can be used place of a keyboard, or as a second screen. Users can spread the desktop across both screens, or use one to watch a video or surf the web, and the other to write an email or edit photos.
