The Iconia W700P boasts an Ivy Bridge Intel Core processor, a 11.6-inch 1,920 x 1,080 IPS display accompanied by 10-point touch, three USB 3.0 ports and Dolby Home Theater. A sound tunnel is also included that is capable of amplifying sounds naturally without utilizing any extra speakers.
A stylus will be offered with the tablet, which Acer claims can last up to 80 days in Deep Sleep mode. A webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and connecting to the web in 2.5 seconds-capability (via Acer's InviLink Nplify WiFi) rounds off the notable features.
Elsewhere, the W510P delivers the majority of the W700P's components. However, the tablet can be used as a notebook PC upon being attached to its docking keyboard. Furthermore, 10-inch IPS display device promises up to 18 hours battery life.
Both tablets have yet to be dated or priced, but expect a launch soon after Microsoft’s Windows 8 event next week.

No Apu?, then no thanks.Reply
Acer has finally excited me about a Windows 8 Tablet! I was holding out for the mention of a W700 that would include a dockable keyboard. My girlfriend has the Samsung Series 7 Slate with SB and loves it, but not having an attachable keyboard makes it difficult to use on the couch etc. This would be perfect! Let's hope for a price ~$1k to boot.Reply
I wonder if the W510P's keyboard is compatible with the W700. I would like a bigger screen and don't mind sacrificing portability a bit.Reply

honestly... what would you need that for? I can only think of Direct X games... but last time I checked Wow, CoD, and Battlefield don't really control well on tablets.

Just putting this out there, but the HD 4000 in every laptop Ivy Bridge chip (that I know of) is actually capable of playing games. Granted you'd have to lower the settings and resolution to get good framerates out of it but it is in fact possible to play Crysis 1 on it.
"W700P, W510P" - Did either of these models EVER actually exist?Reply
