Acer Details Iconia W700 Windows 8 11.6-Inch Tablet PC


After announcing three Windows 8-powered ultrabooks, Acer has detailed the pricing, full specification list, as well as U.S. and Canadian availability of their Iconia W700 Windows 8 tablet.

Due to ship on October 26, there will be three variants of the Iconia W700. Depending on hardware configuration, they'll range from $799 ($749 in Canada) to $999.

The cradle of Acer’s Windows 8 tablets are designed to hold the tablet at a variety of angles and orientations, while all three devices will feature the usual sensors: an electronic compass, gyroscope and accelerometer.



According to Acer, the three tablets can perform a cold boot in just six seconds, with its Bluetooth keyboard making it easier for those who don't wish to type on the touchscreen. A protective case is included in the box, and a Micro-HDMI to VGA adapter are also included.

  • MUCH too expensive, resolution far too low. Samsung’s P10 has an 11.8 inch display and 2560x1600 resolution, for much less money.

  • Nope.


    Even if the high price is due to this tablet basically being a laptop equivalent, the interface is not good enough to actually be productive (do actual work).

  • Exactly, it's just an overpriced tablet that doesn't even have a 1080p front facing camera.
    Intel graphics are laughable as well on something this expensive.
