Post Acer Iconia w700 Official Thread (Folio & Dock Version)

Hi all,

I bought the Acer Iconia W700 Folio a week ago & decided to open a thread about it as no one have did it.


PS: The Stylus Pen is not the one that came included with the w700.

Acer's w700 Commercial (Only shows the dock version.)


w700 unboxing (Dock Version)


Some w700 Reviews:


W700 vs Surface Pro vs Samsung Ativ


Specification of the w700:
OS: WIndows 8 64Bit (Not RT)
Processor: Intel Core i5-3337U
LCD: 11.6" Multi-touch FHD Acer CineCrystal LCD
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4000
Memory: 4GB DDR3 Memory
Storage: 128GB SSD
WLAN / Bluetooth: Acer Nplify 802.11a/g/n + BT 4.0
Webcam: Acer Crystal Eye HD webcam/5MP camera
Camera: 5.0 Mega Pixel (No Flash)

Ports/Button found on the w700:
1x USB 3.0
1x Mini-HDMI
1x Charging Port
1x Screen Lock
1x Power Button
1x Volume Buttons
1x 3.5mm Audio/Mic jack

THERE IS 2 VERSIONS OF THE W700!

Yes. It's a powerful tablet too and the cheapest among the others and have the longest battery life in the i5 series (7hours).

Thanks!

yupp no 3g version, you can use a 3G dongle. Yes the battery life is good and comparing other i5 tablet/semi-tablet-ultrabook this w700 is priced so much lower than those with the same specs.
