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 W500-BZ467 review

 

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 W500-BZ467

 

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.

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.

Acer ICONIA Tab W500

 

If you're looking for mobile entertainment and dependable productivity on the go, don't settle for just one. The Acer ICONIA TAB W500 is the latest, lightest and most enjoyable way of enjoying the best of both worlds.

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 Tab W500

 

Can the Acer Iconia Tab W500 prove there's a place even for Windows 7 in the burgeoning tablet market?

Good display ; Responsive capacitive touchscreen ; Decent graphics chip performance

Bulky and heavy ; Ropey keyboard peripheral design ; Windows 7 doesn't like touchscreens

Acer Iconia Tab W500

 

How do you make a Windows tablet usable? You include a keyboard. That's not actually a fair description of the Acer Iconia Tab W500 (which is nowhere near as ungainly as its name), but the Tab doesn't manage to solve all the issues with using Windows...

Bright, beautiful colourful screen with excellent touch resolution and excellent sound make this a great little media tablet, and the C-50 processor is a step above an Atom

The price and the battery life are only good for a Windows tablet - not compared to iPad or Android, the keyboard dock is an excellent idea poorly executed

The Iconia Tab W500 wants to be the best of both worlds; in the end it's one of the nicest Windows tablets we've seen so far (barring the small size of the on-screen keyboard) and that's both praise and complaint. Windows 7 does do touch pretty well,...
