If you’re looking for a business tablet that can replace an ultrabook, a fine alternative would be the Acer Iconia W700, that we unboxed in the video below. We’re talking about a 11.6 inch Full HD slate, that packs a bunch of hardcore specs, crammed into a huge device.


It measures 12 mm in thickness and weighs about a kilo. The product is priced at $1049.99 and it’s bundled with a cover and keyboard, at least in the version we tested. The slate runs Windows 8 Pro 64 bit and relies on a 3rd gen Intel Core i5 processor with 1.7 GHz frequency. There’s also 4 GB of DDR3 RAM on board, 128 GB of SSD storage and a 11.6 inch Full HD display (LED backlit).

The device also has Intel HD 4000 graphics and front and back cameras capable of HD capture. At the back we’ve got a 5 megapixel camera and on the side we find a micro HDMI port. WiFi, Bluetooth and USB 3.0 are all present here, as well as a battery that promises 9 hours of functioning time. This is more of a tablet for a business man, who’s constantly on the move and doesn’t want to rely on a big and heavy laptop. We’ll be back with a few more details in the full review in a couple of days!

    no digitizer, shame for a business tablet. Looks good but pretty heavy

  • vasras

    Too heavy, too slow for Windows, too little space left over in SSD after OS, too expensive, too low resolution.

    Why would I buy that, unless I am masochist and I want to try and use legacy Windows 8 (non-RT) apps on a touch UI and have 4.5 hours (real) battery life?

    Windows 8 tablets (both RT and Pro) are a fail in the market and for a good reason.
