Acer strikes again at Computex as does Windows 8! The Iconia W700 tablet is quite a lot like the one already presented. Its a little larger than its little brother the W510, at 11.6 inches instead of the W510′s 10.1 inch display and it looks a little more powerful.
The tablet doesn’t have a keyboard. Instead, Acer included a stand which can be adjusted to a 20 degree or 70 degree angle – depending on whether the user wants the W700 in vertical or in landscape mode for video. The large display has 1920 x 1080 pixels – and it has been announced as an HD tablet. The tablet makes for good sound Dolby Home Theater and the Ivy Bridge-powered unit has at least 3 USB 3.0 ports and aport. We think it will likely be priced between $799-$999 and you also can get it with a keyboard option. Acer wants to sell the tablet in combination with the stand and keyboard as a “desktop replacement” – we’ll wait and see if this plan takes off when we have more details.
