The Acer Aspire P3-171-6820 is an affordable tablet hybrid powered by an Intel Core i5 CPU. It offers a responsive, albeit low resolution, 11.6-inch touch-screen, a detached Bluetooth keyboard, and relatively good battery life, but there are better performing hybrids out there.

With the Acer Aspire P3-171-6820 you get a tablet and an Ultrabook in one slim, affordable package. Its 10-point touch-screen is ideal for swiping your way through Windows 8 apps, and you'll never have to worry about reattaching the Bluetooth keyboard (but you may want to take care not to knock the tablet off its perch while typing). Its battery provided over five hours of unplugged computing power, but when it came to performance, it couldn't keep pace with the competition. If you can spare an extra $100, the Editors' Choice Microsoft Surface Windows 8 Pro offers better performance as well as a 1,920-by-1,080 screen, a digitizer pen, an SDXC card reader, and a slightly bigger solid-state drive.

60% Acer Aspire P3

We like the Acer Aspire P3: it's made with quality materials, the Bluetooth keyboard case is attractive and functional and the tablet has a lovely display. But it's hard to recommend over Acer's own Iconia W700 with a faster CPU, somewhat longer battery life and a full HD display for nearly the same price.

67% Forgettable tablet
Source: CNet English
I don't know why someone would want the Acer Aspire P3. Bang for the buck, maybe, or an included keyboard case. But the price isn't much less than that of a Surface Pro, and doesn't offer anything that feels particularly great. Add in that new processors are going to improve this class of Windows tablet sooner than later.

50% Acer Aspire P3 Review
Source: Digital Trends English
Given the Iconia Tab’s similar design, slightly better components, better and brighter screen, and much longer battery life, it’s hard to argue for the lesser P3, given the two tablets’ prices are so similar, at least as of this writing. At $900, the Aspire P3 is also in the same price territory as Microsoft’s Surface Pro, which also has better components and a 1080p screen, though you’ll have to pay extra for the keyboard cover.

Yes, Acer is calling the Aspire P3 an Ultrabook, but this is really a Windows 8 tablet at its core and should be judged as such. At $899, the Acer Aspire P3 is positioned between the $624 Atom-powered Iconia W510 and the more powerful -- but more expensive -- $999 Iconia W700.

Acer Aspire P3 hands-on review
Source: PC Advisor English
The P3 comes with a built-in Acer Crystal Eye HD front webcam captures video in 720p HD, bringing life to video web chats while the 5MP back camera captures photos in high resolution, which is more than enough for a hybrid device. The new Ultrabook features a 60GB or 120GB SSD for powering on the device and retrieving data quickly and securely.

Acer Aspire P3 pictures and hands-on
Source: Pocket Lint English
The thing we like the most about the P3 - which Pocket-lint has been playing with at Acer's global launch event in New York - is just how easy it is to detach the tablet from its keyboard dock. It simply pops in or out of the provided frame and that's it - not connectors, wires or anything like that to deal with.

Hands on: Acer Aspire P3 review
Source: Techradar English
We totally agree with Acer that this product category is currently where it's at - if you're buying a new laptop, why not get an Ultrabook that's also a Windows 8 tablet? It's a win-win situation... in theory. But the problem with many of these devices - and the P3 would appear to be a basketcase in this regard - is that you simply don't get the best of both worlds. It's a decent hybrid device, but as individual Ultrabook or Windows 8 tablet it's compromised.

Acer Aspire P3 Hands On Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
The Acer Aspire P3 is housed within its bluetooth keyboard case, but it can be easily removed from its case if need be. Being able to pop in and pop out the Aspire wasn’t difficult at all, which certainly helps in its owner having the ability to convert it into another mode. As I said earlier, the Acer Aspire P3 feels more like a tablet within a bluetooth keyboard housing, which isn’t quite what I believe an ultrabook to be. But its main selling point, being an ultra-convertible computer, is something it does well.

65% Acer Aspire P3-171-6408 Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Aspire P3-171-6408 (Core i3 and 60GB SSD) is priced at Rs 54,999 and the Aspire P3-171-6820 (Core i5 and 120GB SSD) is priced at Rs 64,999. The P3-171-6408 is one of the most affordable Windows 8 hybrid laptop-tablets running a Core i3 processor. The reason for it being so affordable is quite obvious—the use of a Bluetooth keyboard case to transform the tablet to an Ultrabook.
