Acer's entry into the blossoming market for "convertible" Windows 8 tablets/notebooks is the Iconia W510. This 10-inch tablet boasts a 1366 x 768 display, a 1.5GHz Intel Atom processor, and 2GB of RAM. You'll find 64GB worth of built-in memory plus front and rear-facing HD cameras, a microSD card slot and a keyboard dock.
The $749 W510 can be had as a tablet-only, without the keyboard dock, for $549. As a tablet alone, the W510 can enjoy up to a 9 hour battery life but using the dock nearly doubles the battery life.
While lauding the battery life, reviewers had a mixed take on the W510. The Intel Atom processor delivers more of a netbook performance than the i3 and higher processors found on Ultrabooks and other notebooks with the same price tag. The keyboard dock also came in for some criticism, as reviewers were disappointed with its ergonomics.
