When it comes to tablets, we'd wager that most Maximum PC readers lean toward the x86 variety—in theory, at least. Right? It's the more capable, more flexible option—the natural fit for computer nerds. In fact, with specs that rival an Ultrabook 's, an...

Most tablets take after Olympic marathon runners when it comes to their dimensions, with almost zero body fat. The ICONIA isn't one of those anorexic creations. Acer has instead adopted the brutish dimensions of a weight lifter, with a much greater heft...

It's neither a great tablet, nor a great laptop replacement as its battery life is too short and the supplied accessories too cumbersome. The only genuine bright spot is the screen, but it's not enough on its own to convince us.

The Acer Iconia W700 aka the W7 is basically an ultrabook in a tablet body, because of the high ends specs it sports. We've got a bundled keyboard case with the slate and if you to know the price, the device goes for $700 in the Core i3 64 GB version....

As ever, Acer has managed a bargain with better specs and more goodies in the box than their competitors. What's new are the classy unibody aluminum casing and overall high end specs. This tablet has an excellent full HD display, good performance and...

Acer's Iconia W700 is fast, well built and comes with a beautiful, Full HD screen. It's the type of tablet Windows users should love. However, its supplied cradle and docking options could be much better -- you only get a couple more USB ports when...

The Acer Iconia W7, like most Windows 8 tablets, will live or die on its hardware, which in turn defines the type of experience users will have. With the Microsoft Surface Pro, you know that the processor is more than enough to multi-task between...

The Windows 8-based Iconia W700 tablet from Acer is strong enough to kick a few notebooks up the backside when it comes to performance and comes with a great screen. Doing the hard work inside the W700 is an Intel Core i3 (second generation 2365M)...

Windows 8 has been one of the most intriguing OS launches that I have ever seen. Manufacturers have been given an OS that lends itself to any shape or form that they can think of. Off the back of that we have seen a variety of different shapes, sizes...

The Acer Iconia W700 is heftier than a lot slates on the market, but it packs in standard laptop components to deliver some pleasing power for general use. The bundled dock and wireless keyboard allows you to use it as a standard PC at your desk and...

Acer's Iconia W700 is an interesting take on the PC's future that can be surprisingly functional despite its unusual design. We used the docked system to write articles, edit photos, and browse the Web, then un-docked it to play Cut The Rope and watch...

Since the introduction of Windows 8, manufacturers' focuses have been primarily on convertible laptops and hybrids. Slate tablets have been a bit of an afterthought, and for one big reason: price. Compared to $500 iPads and $200 Nexus 7′s, who in their...

We don’t object to the principle of a Windows tablet that turns into a desktop all in one - Microsoft’s own Surface slate pulls it off better than this, and for a better price too. But the Acer Iconia W700 is not the solution to anybody’s problems: a...

Windows 8 makes so much more sense for a tablet crossover device like the Acer Iconia W700. The operating system's interface is in its element in tablet mode, as is the W700, but the latter also does a pretty decent job as a desktop Windows device. We...

This Windows 8 convertible tablet PC marches to a different drummer. Its hardware and feature set would make it an powerful laptop replacement, but its docking solutions are desktop-centric. If you don’t need all its power on the road, it makes for...
