Acer Iconia

If any company has found itself left out of the tablet buzz, it’s Microsoft. Windows-based tablets went bust in 2010 after HP refused to market the slate it built, and few manufacturers have taken the plunge since then, citing the expense of Windows software and the hardware innards needed to make it run. Acer’s Iconia isn’t one tablet, it’s two: It looks like a laptop, but when you flip it open, you get two 14-inch touchscreen displays (no keyboard!) and Windows 7 under the hood. Bring your checkbook.
