Model:

The Acer Iconia One B1-730HD is a simple yet capable tablet that will satisfy the budget user. At first glance, the device has a fundamental bar form with black glossy border and textured back. Physical buttons are kept minimal with only the power and volume rockers at the side. The Android Jelly Bean tablet comes equipped with an Intel Atom Z2560 dual-core processor clocked at 1.60 GHz, PowerVR SGX544 graphics processor and 1 GB RAM.

The internal storage on the Acer Iconia One 7 B1-730HD is 16 GB and users can use a microSD card to add another 32 GB. All the mentioned specification is tucked behind a 7 inch Active Matrix TFT LCD with LED backlight technology display which has very good picture quality especially for the price point.

The tablet also comes with stereo speakers and this makes entertainment playback a pleasure. Images and video can be captured using the 5 megapixel primary rear camera or the secondary front facing camera. The 11.64 oz (330 g) tablet has a 1-cell lithium polymer battery rated at 3680 mAh. Needless to say, the Acer Iconia One 7 B1-730HD has very good battery life with the ability to play video for 7.50 hours straight.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z2560: SoC with an integrated dual-core Atom based CPU clocked at 0.9 - 1.6 (short bursts), a 400 MHz PowerVR SGX 544MP2 graphics card, and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


7.0": This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.33 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
