High-res screen problematic for desktop use; no trackpad on the keyboard; heavy for a tablet.

Review Acer Iconia W700-53334G12as Tablet


Runs and runs and runs. While Windows 8 tablets powered by Atom S

Strong battery; Very good viewing angles; Decent performance owing to the SSD; Pleasant feel; Agreeably slim design; Good keyboard; Quiet

Moderate build; Mediocre screen brightness; Poor cameras; Few interfaces

We didn't expect a tablet based on Core i with such a long runtime.

Acer Iconia Tab W700 Review


Users have tried adding keyboards to tablets ever since the release of the original iPad. Often, these third-party docks or keyboard cases have been of questionable quality and utility, but that hasn't stopped consumers from buying them.

Great 1080p display ; Pleasing bundled keyboard ; Good battery life ; Fast ; Affordable

Dock could be better ; Bulky tablet design ; Windows sometimes doesn’t scale well ; Poor sound quality

Acer has delivered a surprisingly powerful and affordable hybrid device that is hampered by design issues.

Acer Iconia W700 review: Tablet, meet desktop


Acer's made a decent first attempt at tablet/desktop convergence with the W700, but the technology and implementation still isn't fully baked.

Functions as both tablet and desktop ; Fast, versatile dock

Heavy for a tablet; small for a desktop ; Needs a mouse

Acer's made a decent first attempt at tablet/desktop convergence with the W700, but it's not quite there yet.

Acer Iconia W700 review: a Core i5 Windows 8 slate that doesn't skimp on battery life


Until PC makers figure out what consumers want in their Windows 8 PCs, they'll be throwing different designs at the proverbial wall to see what sticks.

Well-built ; Surprisingly long battery life ; Fast performance, runs cool ; Attractively priced

Clumsy form factor ; Thick and heavy, even for a Core i5 tablet ; No mouse included, no trackpad on the keyboard

The W700 is hefty, even for a Core i5 tablet, and its bulky dock isn't good for traveling. Still, the tablet offers a rare combination of fast performance and long battery life.

Acer Iconia W700-6465


The Acer Iconia W700-6465 ($999.99 list) is a Windows 8 slate tablet, eschewing the traditional keyboard and clamshell design in favor of a screen-only form factor for enhanced mobility. Now, there have been Windows slate tablets in the past, like the...

Slate tablet form factor. 1080p resolution. Includes cradle and pre-paired keyboard. Very good battery life. Wide viewing angle. Comes with carrying case. Full Windows 8. Loud speakers

Text and UI are small in desktop mode. Needs Wacom digitizer stylus compatibility for artists and engineers. No GPS

The Acer Iconia W700-6465 slate tablet shows where Microsoft wants to go with touch-based Windows 8, plus it's more compatible with your existing software than anything running Windows RT.

Acer Iconia W700-6465


Few systems have had as polarizing an effect in the CNET offices as the Acer Iconia W700. Some felt this full Windows 8 touch-screen tablet and keyboard combo looked ridiculous, or was unwieldy for everyday use. Others liked that it has an Intel Core...

The Acer Iconia W700 can work as a tablet or a small desktop, and it has a high-res screen and excellent battery life.

The non-adjustable stand limits viewing angles, and you'll need an external mouse or touch pad for efficient Windows navigation.

One of the only Core i5 slate-style Windows 8 systems we've seen, the Acer Iconia W700 asks few compromises for full-time use, but the design isn't for everyone.

Acer Iconia W700-6465


The $999 Acer Iconia W700-6465 is gorgeous and fast, but this 11-inch tablet costs a pretty penny.

Attractive aluminum design; Lush and crisp display; Ships with keyboard and dock; Intuitive and helpful Acer Ring utility; Above-average overall performance; Good battery life

Expensive; Thick and heavy for a tablet; Dock too unwieldy for travel; Poor camera quality

Click to EnlargeThe Iconia W700 offers excellent speed, a beautiful full HD display and good battery life (for a Core i5 device) in an attractive all-aluminum chassis. However, the 2-pound weight and high $999 price for this slate dampen our enthusiasm.

Acer's Iconia W700 Ivy Bridge Windows 8 Tablet: The Start of Something Big


My first meeting of Computex wasn't a meeting at all, rather it was Acer's press conference a day before the show officially started. In its press conference, Acer introduced a top to bottom lineup of touch enabled Windows 8 devices.

Acer Iconia W700


Acer's Iconia W700 is one of the best Windows 8 slates on the market. But we're still not convinced it's a great buy.

Great combination of battery life and performance. Excellent screen quality. Very portable and versatile

Resolution makes getting around difficult without peripherals. Graphics performance nonexistent. Weak port selection. Windows 8 reinstallation/restore failed, citing “missing files
