Acer Iconia Tab W500 Review: An Adaptable Windows 7 Tablet

 

Hybrid designs are not new in the world of tablets, but they aren't exactly common either. The Acer Iconia Tab W500 tablet is a slate-style machine--all of its guts are behind the screen, and it can stand on its own as a tablet--but it also comes with...

Comes with a keyboard dock ; More powerful than a netbook ; Good screen and speakers

Huge bezel ; Heavy and thick even for a Windows tablet ; Small, 32GB hard drive

The included keyboard dock gives this tablet the flexibility to imitate a laptop, but it also introduces considerable bulk.

Acer Iconia Tab W500-BZ467 (32GB, gray, with keyboard docking station)

 

Editors' note: Although CNET didn't review the Acer Iconia Tab W500 BZ467, we did review the Acer Iconia Tab W500 BZ841 , which is the same tablet except for one little detail. The BZ841 comes with Windows 7 Professional, while the BZ467 includes...

The Acer Iconia Tab W500 has a clever design that allows you to detach its Netbook-like screen for use as a standalone tablet.

The keyboard dock is a pain to connect or disconnect; you can't simply fold it shut like a laptop; and there's no touch pad, only a trackpoint stick.

The Acer Iconia Tab W500 works in several potentially good ideas, undone by half-baked physical design that makes it needlessly frustrating to use.

Acer Iconia Tab W500P-BZ841

 

Windows tablets have been around for years, in the form of slates and convertible laptops with touch-screen lids that rotate and fold down over the keyboard. To date, many of these have been disappointing, largely because they failed on either the...

Acer Iconia Tab W500-BZ467

 

Along the edges of the W500-BZ467 you'll find a power button, push-button volume controls, and a Windows button on the bezel that glows with a blue LED light. The W500-BZ467 also has a wider bezel than seen on most tablets, which provides plenty of...

10.1-inch screen that supports 720p. HDMI with 1080p output. 32GB SSD is speedy and silent. Docking keyboard returns functionality to Windows

Weak processor. Small SSD. User experience diminishes without the keyboard

The Acer Iconia Tab W500-BZ467 has the best Windows experience we've seen on a tablet, thanks to its docking keyboard. Lose that and the Iconia Tab loses a lot of its appeal.

Acer Iconia Tab W500

 

Worlds colliding can sometimes be a bit scary: Work friends meeting your parents; new girlfriend meeting the ex; having Windows on a tablet...with a keyboard... Okay, that last one is a little out there. But in theory, this could be a winning...

Speedy performance ; Great-sounding speakers ; Bright, color-rich display ; Keyboard-dock included

Pricey ; Heavy ; Slow app-load times ; Poor battery life ; Subpar video capture

The Windows OS and solid performance aren’t enough to make up for this tablet’s slow-loading apps, poor battery life, heft, and high price tag.

Acer Iconia W500P

 

Under the hood, the Acer Iconia Tab W500 is a decent tablet PC that performs well. It has good technical specifications and is easy to use. However, its inconvenient and cumbersome design leaves much to be desired and there are more user-friendly and...

The screen can conveniently function as a standalone tablet

The device is plagued with poor design; docking, undocking and closing the system can be difficult

This tablet PC is only a good fit for people who are seeking a combination notebook and standalone tablet.
