Ever since Minority Report tantalized moviegoers with its vision of a whooshing, gesture-driven computer interface, companies have been trying to make the technology a reality. Acer has taken a big step closer, releasing the only dual-touchscreen laptop in the U.S. Resembling two iPads joined at the hip, the Iconia lets you type and control functions on the bottom screen (touch the lower panel with both palms to access a virtual keyboard) and use both screens for photo viewing and continuous website scrolling. And behind those slick 14-inch LCD screens lies a powerful Windows PC with 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. $1,400; acer.com
