Have use this for 5 months and am not really happy with it and I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Windows 8.1 is easier to use that I thought it would be coming from Windows 7 ; Size is nice but it is not really light

Touch screen is not very responsive. Twice I have lost use of both the attached keyboard and the onscreen keyboard. The first time it froze so I had to use a paper cli[p in the reset hole to get it to reboot. The other time I was able to reboot via the...

Short lived


Not clear what or who provides the 90 day warranty

Great while it worked

All I need for school


This little PC/tablet is a lightweight machine with all the programs you need for school. I'm glad it came with free office 2013. The battery seems OK. I have only used it a couple days so far though. The keyboard seems good enough for typing a report...

It needs a BIOs update and when I did the update it made my system take at least an hour to load, I tried to restart it 5-6 times and it wouldn't load windows. Finally I figured out it needed another complete system restore to make it work. You can...

Smooth and nice


It has nothing to do with the product but I oredered the product at 4pm, I got it the next day at 11am, amazing first thime it happens to me. Good job Newegg !

I got this 2 in 1 for my wife in replacement of her old 2007 macbook. She uses it for school, ebook reading, internet browsing and also to watch movie. This is a great ultrabook, it actually runs windows 8.1 very smoothly, the touch screen is very good...

for the price none, might update after a couple of months if we find any

Great buy


Does some things my Surface 2 RT cannot due to RT OS

Full WIN 8.1. Can't tell it is a refurb as everything looks and functions as a new unit. Synch through MS account to my desktop. Great for use on the road

32 GB may ultimately be a limiter, but so far doesn't seem so

Broke within 2 weeks


I would not recommend this product.

Nice touch screen, easy to use

Broke within 2 weeks of light use, won't power on at all and NewEgg support did not help me at all. They referred me to Acer but the SN shows up as an expired warranty by Acer support website

Love it so far (5 months)


There is a weirdness with the battery change. There is a setting on the wifi adapter that tells it stay awake and look for updates. Apparently, that feature was created for ACTUAL tablets that can do that in the hardware. This tablet does not have that... 8.1...quick response...good wi fi connectivity...crisp/clear screen...comes with full Office, not the Office 365 stuff ; Looked at this for my daughter in college, then went and got myself one instead. She has one now too and...

I got a dead spot on my screen. Very tiny..took me like three weeks to even notice it. Smaller than the periods in this text box

Consumer review by: tanya (

oh my gosh gollee


Its portable, and the 2 in 1 ability is neat

It falls over if you open it too much, it is horribly slow, there are constant pop ups, it is nearly impossible to use efficiently. I had to use a different computer in order to type this review, because it wouldn't work. It takes forever to load...

Acer SW5-011-11JE


Good device, especially or travelers.

Light weight & slim. I like the way the keyboard can be attached to the tablet for different configurations

Sometimes the tablet gets confused with the cursor / touchpad interface when keyboard is attached. Also, sometimes the pointer freezes for about 5 seconds. Just a couple of minor annoyances, that's all
