It might not be quite as cheap as the most affordable Windows RT tablets, but Acer is definitely aiming for thinner wallets with this Windows 8-powered hybrid. Acer has delivered a very usable little Windows 8 tablet in the W510 and if your storage needs are slim, the sturdy construction, light weight and incredible battery life make this a tempting tablet hybrid.

The Acer Iconia W510 retails for Rs 46,349 with the keyboard dock. If that’s too expensive for you or if you don’t need the dock, you can opt for only the tablet, which costs Rs 35,019. That’s a very good price considering high-end hybrids cost thrice as much and the premium ones such as the HP Envy x2 (which also comes with a keyboard dock) cost around Rs 14,000 more.

We’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Atom-powered Windows 8 tablets, and, despite a patchy performance, the Acer demonstrates exactly why. The OS is the big issue here: while Windows RT is hamstrung by its lack of apps and inability to run x86 software, Acer’s Iconia W510 is limited only by the power of its Atom processor. Within reason, you can run whatever Windows applications you like. It’s sorely lacking in premium appeal – the plasticky hardware is uninspiring at best – but, for those hoping for a halfway house between a Windows netbook and Android or iOS tablet, the Acer Iconia W510 may prove just the ticket.

The Acer Iconia W510-1422 may not be the fastest tablet—it's pretty slow for anything beyond Web browsing and document editing—but it does offer portability and unparalleled battery life. But while the ability to pick up and go for hours and hours on end will definitely spark some interest, the Iconia W510 is still underpowered and lacking in features. That said, if you want something portable and convenient—and that works with a range of Windows software—the Acer Iconia W510-1422 is worth your consideration.

Acer Iconia W510 Review: full Windows 8 Intel Atom tri-mode tablet PC
Source: Slashgear English
This machine is ready for the 2013 season of Windows 8 action, but it’s not going to replace your MacBook Air. It’s not meant to – if you’re a Windows user and want a mobile device ready for everyday action and a relatively large amount of battery time, that’s where you’ll find the greatness in the Iconia W5. The whole setup is solid, the presentation is ready to take on the top competition in the market today, and it’s easily one of our top choices for convertible tablets running full Windows 8 today – and not just because there aren’t many of them out there!

In our tablet tests, the system fared far better. Performance was on par with its Atom-based peers, though battery life dropped to only about 8 hours in our continual video rundown test. Subjectively, the W510-1422 unit feels nimble enough, and 1080p video played fine in the Windows 8 video player. The popular VLC player had issues using its own internal codecs, so if that's your preferred player, you'll need to set it to use the system codecs.

75% Windows 8 + Intel Atom = great battery life
Source: CNet English
The detachable-screen hybrid Windows 8 laptop feels like a check box nearly every PC maker needs to hit for 2013. None of the variations on this theme is as elegant as the best clamshell or convertible laptops, and some of the prices we've seen will be hard for consumers to swallow. That said, the Iconia W510 works well as a standalone tablet, and has very enviable battery life, but it is hampered by a high price, clunky keyboard, and too many micro-style ports.

For people who move around a lot, the Iconia W510's astonishing 18-hour battery life (with the keyboard plugged in) is one point in favour of this convertible netbook/tablet. While it isn't powerful enough to make use of the vast catalogue of programmes available for Windows 8, it does offer a fluid experience. The W510 will get you where you're going, but only as long as you stick with basic productivity and web browsing.

70% Acer Iconia W510 review: Wide-screen tablet with a clever dock
Source: PC World English
The W5's widescreen display will appeal to some, but kill the deal for others--a major conundrum for those eyeing the Surface and other Windows 8 tablets as well. In the end, eying those others might be a good idea--the W510 is a decent product, but it's not great and there's a lot of competition.

The 10-inch Acer Iconia W510 comes very close to being our favourite Windows 8 convertible tablet/laptop with Atom inside. It’s smaller and lighter than 11.6-inch rivals, but doesn’t compromise on resolution, connectivity or battery life to get there. It also sports a unique (at least for a detachable convertible) rotating hinge that genuinely expands it usability, while its screen and speakers more than hold their own. Unfortunately, the keyboard won’t be for everyone due to its poor layout, and the touchpad is rather stiff. If you can live with these flaws and don’t mind the absence of a Wacom stylus, this hybrid comes recommended.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.


10.1":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

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.


0.7 kg:

This weight is typical for small tablets.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


72.44%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
