Reviews for the Acer Iconia-W3-810-27602G03nsw
Pocket-Windows. Acer offers a small tablet (8.1-inch) with standard Windows (no RT version) for 329 Euros (~$433) and Microsoft Office 2013 (Home and Student) as a free addition. Our review will reveal whether the Iconia W3-810 is a universal and compact companion or Acer had to make drastic cuts for this price.

All told, the Acer Iconia W3 does have the unique distinction of being the first 8-inch Windows 8 tablet to market, but if you've looked at other Windows tablets, the small size might not be enough. The poor display, mixed performance scores, and less-than-satisfying accessory keyboard are a tough sell, even with the tablet's excellent battery life, small form-factor, and low price. If you must have Windows 8 and can't go larger than 8inches, then the Acer Iconia W3 is worth considering, since it's the only one out there. If you can be flexible on size, you might consider the Windows-8-equipped Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx or the HP Envy X2, but if you can accept the limitations of Windows RT, the Editors' Choice Dell XPS 10 is still our top pick.

Integrated GPU in a number of Intel Atom Clover Trail processors.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
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).
Z2760: Soc with integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at up to 1.8 GHz (only Turbo?), a PowerVR SGX 545 based GPU clocked at 533 MHz and a dual channel LPDDR2-800 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This display diagonal is quite small for tablets.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
