Laptop Replacement Offer

You may recall my recent request for advice on a laptop replacement for an Acer Aspire 4738.

http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/1/tech-helproom/4141678/updated-laptop-request/

My insurance company has, at last, offered to settle with an Acer Iconia Dual Screen Tablet Core i5 2.66GHz 4GB 640GB 14.1 inch HD LED backlit Touchscreen, with no betterment cost.

Although a slightly smaller screen, this is, on the face of it, a very good offer, but would be grateful for some opinions, particularly from anybody with hands on experience of this model.

I can't seem to locate a decent independent review anywhere.

Hmm, afraid I have no hands-on experience, but the specs look pretty good!

I have a new i5 from Novatech, but it is not dual screen. I do like the i5 CPU.

Thanks.

I did find one review (US) which commented on the battery life of two hours, lack of SSD card slots and no optical drive, none of which are likely to prove a real problem for me.

I have a spare slimline drive which I can put in a caddy, and at least four USB card readers.
