Acer Aspire P3-171-6820

 

The Acer Aspire P3-171-6820 is an affordable tablet hybrid powered by an Intel Core i5 CPU.

Ten-point touchscreen. Good battery life. Reasonably priced.

Middling performance. Tablet not secure when parked on keyboard. Relatively low-res display.

With the Acer Aspire P3-171-6820 you get a tablet and an Ultrabook in one slim, affordable package. Its 10-point touch-screen is ideal for swiping your way through Windows 8 apps, and you'll never have to worry about reattaching the Bluetooth keyboard...

Acer Aspire P3-171-6820

 

Acer is further diversifying its Windows 8 portfolio with the Aspire P3-171, an 11-inch "Ultrabook" with a low-voltage Core i5 processor and SSD. More like a tablet with a keyboard case than a laptop, this sturdy $899 device packs a serious punch in...

Acer Aspire P3-171-6820 Review

 

The 11-inch Acer Aspire P3-171 is a premium Windows 8 hybrid with an aluminum design and included keyboard case, but its battery life is short.

Solid aluminum design; Bright display; Good 5-MP camera

Keyboard case doesn't feel very secure; A bit slower than competing Windows 8 tablets; Short battery life

Review Acer Aspire P3-171-3322Y2G06as Convertible

 

Iconia basic. Windows alongside decent computing power packed in

Very good viewing angles; Very bright screen; Grayscale reproduction; Decent performance owing to SSD; Nice feel, stable chassis; Quiet; Decent 5 MP camera; Decent runtimes

Few interfaces, no card reader; Poor keyboard feedback; Keyboard unusable in flight mode; Heavy with keyboard case; High waste heat

The slimmed Core i3 does a good job. A decent system performance is achieved alongside the swift SSD, which can almost compete with expensive ultrabooks.

Acer Aspire P3-171-6408 Review

 

We've come across many hybrid laptop-tablets in the recent past like the Dell XPS 12, Sony Vaio Duo and Asus Taichi. These slick and highly versatile devices command an exorbitant price, which can get past the six-digit mark depending on the feature...

The plastic casing that holds the tablet and the keyboard are of the same grey colour as the tablet to go with the colour theme. The casing and the keyboard are glued to a thick faux leather sheet which has a grainy black exterior. A horizontal ridge...

Acer Aspire P3-171 Hybrid Ultrabook Tablet Review

 

Acer Aspire P3 has great overall build quality and has powerful specs that could take on many a CPU intensive application. But does it justify the price of Rs. 75000.

• Powerful specs for size ; • Large storage (60/120GB) ; • Smooth and precise touch response ; • Onboard USB port

• Unsafe dock arrangement ; • Indecent camera

Acer Aspire P3 has great overall build quality and has powerful specs that could take on many a CPU intensive application. Ironically, flaws of this convertible ultrabook lie in the fact it cannot be switched easily to the tablet mode and its laptop...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Painfully Slow

 

The tablet worked great from the beginning, but then I did a windows update on it and it's been running terribly ever since. Do not upgrade to windows 8.1. I'm currently in the process to have newegg do an exchange or return.

Large screen, the keyboard case and mouse are a nice addition

Freezes constantly, loses network connectivity, swipe functions stop working
