Acer makes a play for Windows 8 with its new Iconia W510 and W700 tablets. From Computex in Taiwan, CNET Asia checks them out.
Live from the Computex show in Taipei, Taiwan, CNET Asia's Aloysius Low gets a closer look at Acer's new Iconia W510 and W700 Windows 8 tablets.
The Acer Iconia W510 is a Windows 8 RT tablet that offers an optional keyboard dock and Intel's mobile Atom processor.
This detachable-screen hybrid is the first of many similar systems coming with the launch of Windows 8, combining the features of a tablet and a traditional laptop.
Offering low-powered Intel Atom tablet/laptop hybrids for $750 or more is a dodgy proposition for budget-looking systems such as the Iconia W510, but all-day battery life is a great selling point.
