Acer Iconia W510 review: as Acer enters the Windows 8 era, it returns to its netbook roots

 

More Info Acer unveils 11.6-inch Iconia W700, 10.1-inch W510 Windows 8 tablets Acer will stop making cheap crap, but keep selling netbooks

Long battery life ; Inexpensive for a full Windows 8 system ; IPS display offers good viewing angles

Cramped, ugly keyboard dock

The W510 is a relatively inexpensive hybrid offering best-in-class battery life. Still, its cramped, netbook-like keyboard could be a dealbreaker.

Portable, But Not That Potent

 

If you want to compete with the iPad, you better look, feel, and weigh like the iPad. That was the clear idea behind the Microsoft Surface , and that's where we're headed with the third-party Windows slates that are beginning to arrive on the market....

Acer Iconia Tab W510-1422

 

Hybrid laptop and tablet designs can work by either shifting between tablet and laptop modes, or separating the tablet from a docking keyboard. The Acer Iconia W510-1422 is the latter, a 10-inch tablet running Windows 8 (32-bit), with a docking...

Seriously long battery life. Immensely portable. Windows 8

Atom processor is slow. Webcam lags. Limited storage space

The Acer Iconia W510-1422 goes all day long and most of the night, with a highly portable design, and a docking keyboard that lets you choose between laptop and tablet.

Acer Iconia W510 review

 

Among the many versions of Windows 8 PCs pushing back against the traditional clamshell laptop is the detachable-screen hybrid. Examples include the HP Envy X2 and the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix , but the first version of this style we got our hands on was...

The Acer Iconia W510 is less expensive than some other Atom-based hybrids, and its detachable tablet screen is light and portable. Battery life is excellent.

In laptop mode, the system is awkwardly top-heavy, and the puny keyboard and touch pad are not designed for serious use.

Offering low-powered Intel Atom tablet/laptop hybrids for $750 or more is a dodgy proposition for budget-looking systems such as the Iconia W510, but all-day battery life is a great selling point.

Acer Iconia W510 review: Wide-screen tablet with a clever dock

 

Acer's Atom-based Windows 8 tablet is great for video, if not books, and the docking station models are serviceable as netbook-sized laptops.

Clever docking design allows use as tablet or laptop ; Widescreen aspect ratio great for video viewing

Tepid overall styling ; Not optimally styled for reading

The W5's widescreen display will appeal to some, but kill the deal for others--a major conundrum for those eyeing the Surface and other Windows 8 tablets as well. In the end, eying those others might be a good idea--the W510 is a decent product, but...

Acer Iconia W510 Review

 

The Acer Iconia W510 is a fairly attractive tablet that can double as a notebook, offering a design that makes it easy to change modes, plus a comfortable keyboard and very long battery life. The fact that you can get more than 15 hours of endurance...

Lightweight design, Long battery life, Comfortable keyboard dock, Useful Acer Ring app

Poor graphics performance, Slow flash memory, Sluggish camera

The Clover Trail (Atom Z2760) Review: Acer's W510 Tested

This week we're having a look at the Acer Iconia W500 series, specifically in the model tagged Iconia W510-1422 with full Windows 8 and multiple modes of computing action. This machine works as a tablet, as a notebook with its keyboard dock (in the box...
