Acer Iconia Tab W510 Windows 8 Tablet Review
      01/05/13 05:06 PM

Affordable full Windows 8 tablets are few and far between right now, and Acer's leading the low price war with the very capable and portable Iconia Tab W510. This is a 10.1" tablet that weighs just 1.3 pounds (less than the latest iPad) yet it runs Windows 8 with support for Windows 7 x86 apps. That means your favorite Windows apps will install and run on this tablet, just as they can on your notebook or desktop. The tablet starts at $499 for the 32 gig model and there's a bundle with the optional keyboard dock that also adds a full size USB 2.0 port and a secondary battery.

So what's the catch? It runs on a 1.8GHz dual core Intel Atom CPU with 2 gigs of DDR2 RAM. It's plenty fast enough for the Modern UI with Live Tiles, but desktop apps can lag. But the same is true of more expensive Atom Windows 8 tablets and we'll never turn down the option to use any USB peripheral we want and install our favorite Windows 7 FTP, news reader and even Photoshop.

The tablet has an excellent multi-touch 1366 x 768 display, microSD card slot, a micro USB port (with dongle adapter to full size USB), micro HDMI and a front 2MP camera and rear 8MP camera.
