Acer Iconia Tab W510 Windows 8 Hybrid Tablet ReviewPosted on 2013-02-20 19:29:04 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Ultra-portable Windows 8 devices range from ultraportable notebooks to touchscreen tablets that feature attachable keyboards. We've seen a number of hybrid ultrabooks as well. So what's the best form factor and hardware combination? Truthfully, it depends on the user and what you're trying to accomplish with the device. Acer's new Iconia W510 series offers users the portability of a tablet along with the flexibility to use the tablet with an attachable keyboard to provide a notebook experience or the ability to use the machine as a presentation device by rotating its keyboard dock 295 degrees, using it as a stand.
The W510 is powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 processor, 2GB of RAM, and either 32GB or 64GB of solid state storage. It's also important to note that the W510 runs a full version of Windows—not Windows RT, so you'll have the ability to run all of your favorite X86 software and apps with this system. In this review, we'll take a closer look at the high-end model in the Acer Iconia W510 line, the W510-1422.
