Neat idea, but just won't work... intel atom is not powerful enough for modern games, so its more of a low spec indie gaming world. OLED keyboard is neat but those things are expensive

Don't give a flying fuck about xbox 360 d0c, wrong thread.

Acer Iconia


Quote:
Release Date: Spring 2011

Why it’s important: The world’s first dual-screen tablet, and it runs Windows 7

This pick is a little controversial; based on our conversations at CES, it’s clear that not everyone has been as enthralled with Acer’s forward-thinking dual-screen Iconia as we have. So why are we awarding it an FTW in the Best Mobile Device category? Because it’s two-display approach and beefy specs—Core i5 CPU, 750GB drive, 3G capability, and USB 3.0—epitomize the Maximum PC ethos of power, performance, and cool.

We appreciate that both of the Iconia’s screens have touch capabilities, and in our hands-on time with the Iconia, we were surprised by how easy it was to type on the virtual keyboard. A library of touch-based gestures allowed us to quick and easily move video between the screens, clip and paste content, and view/edit photographs. We also appreciated that this hybrid tablet/laptop runs a modified version of Windows 7, which makes it far more functional than a typical tablet. The only downsides: it’s expensive ($2,000) and not as portable as a pure tablet.

Mark our words: In three years or so, dual-screen touch laptops and tablets will be ubiquitous. The Iconia is the first shot in this revolution.

Post em if you got em, I find pc gaming, modding and hacking utterly fascinating... its unfortunate that we no longer see innovation in software with the rise of consoles. I was reading an article in EDGE about how a lot of the industry leader devs are dissapointed and feel confined within the console space and they need revolutions to push graphics and gameplay forward.

We've only really got Valve now, crytek (the new ID) and ID have completely sold out...

This list is garbage and written by either someone very young or very new to gaming.

For example, BioShock? Has this guy ever played System Shock, or even Dues Ex? The answer is clearly no, its all 'new' console games and ignores about 20 years of history.

Pffft, BF42 is on one list only. Like combined arms warfare wasn't innovative, geez.
