First Look: Acer Aspire P3: a Windows tablet grows a keyboard

1:03 /

Call it an ultrabook, but Acer's latest 11-inch computer's really a tablet with its own keyboard case.

The Acer Aspire P3 is called an ultrabook, but when it was unveiled at Acer's event, you can see that it's actually an 11-inch Windows tablet that happens to have a keyboard case attached. That doesn't mean it isn't a full-fledged computer, but put it more in a territory like the Microsoft Surface Pro in terms of a convertible type of design versus a true laptop. That being said too, the outer keyboard attaches with a service snap-on case, so it's really like a Bluetooth iPad case-style design, no track pad, and it folds up with a little bit of a plastic feel. In fact, the whole thing definitely feels a step below premium. But that's because it is. The price is $799, which is very competitive for a Core i3/i5 CPU, and you've got 2 or 4 gigs of RAM, 60 or 120 gigabytes of storage, and front- and rear-facing cameras. However, keep in mind, there are a lot more Windows 8 tablets coming out later this year, you might wanna wait. I'm Scott Stein, and it's a quick look at the Acer Aspire P3.
