Acer Iconia: Two Touch Screens, Win7

The computer, which is available for order now and shows up in stores later this month, costs $1,199.99. It weighs a hefty 6.2 pounds, and comes with 4 gigabytes of memory and a 640- gigabyte hard drive standard. It also has a webcam, high- definition video and audio connections and three USB ports, one of them the new, ultra-fast USB 3.0.
Sounds inexpensive for two 14" displays..but:

The biggest drawback is the battery. The two touch screens suck power like a vacuum cleaner, and even Acer’s claim of three hours on a full charge may be on the high side if you’ve got the screens set to bright and are connected to a Wi-Fi network. Moreover, the battery isn’t user-replaceable, so you’ll tend to find yourself tethered to an electrical outlet.
Looks kinda cool:
