Reviews Word on the street for the Acer Iconia W700

Aside from the processor, you'll also find 4GB of RAM and all the 3D graphics are handled by the Intel HD 3000 core built into the Intel Core i3 chip.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Operating System

High-end Ultrabooks packing an Ivy Bridge-based Intel Core i7 processor would produce a score of around 9,000 in Cinebench, which is ideal for heavy image editing, dealing with video and multi-tasking full Windows apps such as Photoshop and Microsoft Word.

The pin-sharp screen is a joy to use when in the new Windows 8 UI mode, and it's just as good for media consumption as work.
by TechRadar (Feb, 2013)
The Acer Iconia W700 is certainly a step forward for full-fat Windows tablets, and one of the few we've seen that can genuinely offer the experience of a full laptop and a tablet as well.

This Iconia tablet’s screen is a thing of beauty.
by TrustedReviews (Nov, 2012)
The dock setup works, as long as you don't want to take it with you, and the range of connectivity means it's easy to hook the tablet up to an HD screen.
by TechRadar (Feb, 2013)
Like nearly every major PC manufacturer, Acer has split its Windows 8 tablet range into an Intel Atom CPU-based affordable model with a HD Ready (1,366 x 768) screen, and a more powerful, more expensive Intel Core-i model with a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) screen.

Operating system

However, we have serious reservations about whether there's enough grunt here to future-proof the Acer W700 for all kinds of PC use, from graphics-heavy applications to multitasking large numbers of programs.
by TechRadar (Feb, 2013)
It means we have serious doubts about the ability of the W700 to handle any types of gaming, beyond anything from the Windows Store.
by TechRadar (Feb, 2013)
The Acer W700 has found a useful niche, and we can genuinely imagine having it docked into a desktop type set up at work, before watching a movie and using the increasing amount of Windows 8 apps on the way home.
by TechRadar (Feb, 2013)


It's great for browsing the web, with more of the web page displayed on screen, and for using apps and playing games, with jaw-dropping visuals.
by TechRadar (Feb, 2013)
It won't handle advanced games, but you could play any casual title easily, although we are concerned about the impact of heat under long periods of stress.
by TechRadar (Feb, 2013)
The W700 managed just 1,785, and the cycle of tests resembled a PowerPoint presentation on 90s gaming rather than an exploration of 3D rendering.
by TechRadar (Feb, 2013)


Without the comfort of its dock, there's just one USB port, a HDMI port and Bluetooth, which we'd recommend for peripherals.
by TechRadar (Feb, 2013)
The added HDMI means you can connect it to an external monitor so you'd have no idea you were using a tablet at all.
by TechRadar (Feb, 2013)
On the left you’ll find microHDMI, a full-size USB 3.0 port and the power jack.
