Reviews for the Acer Aspire P3-171-3322Y2G06as
Iconia basic. Windows alongside decent computing power packed in a quality aluminum tablet featuring a colorful and bright IPS screen. A keyboard-case combination is also included. There is barely a contender that can beat the current price of just below 600 Euros (~$769). Bargain alert?

The Acer Aspire P3 has several things going for it, such as its screen, processing power and audio output. But the way it's designed makes it difficult to use the same way you would normally use a laptop (no touchpad, low-quality keyboard). And the tablet's light weight could have been a big selling point, but with the keyboard attached it weighs more than many 13-inch laptops.

If you're looking for a Windows tablet for working on the move, the Acer Aspire P3 has a lot to offer at a great price. However, minuscule storage space and low quality keyboard mean it's still a poor replacement for a laptop.

At first glance, the tablet/laptop hybrid Acer Aspire P3-171-3322Y2G06as looks like an update on Acer's Iconia W700. It is slimmer and has the same specs, yet a lower price tag. The most obvious difference would be the 1366x768 resolution IPS screen. But, this is alright for an 11.6 inch screen. The colors are actually quite good. The device looks pretty sleek, with the all over aluminum casing and is sturdy and well built. The keyboard dock is made of similar looking hard plastics and it all closes up into a nice futuristic laptop-like package with the provided casing. While the tiny keyboard is not ideal for long work hours, it is designed to utilize the available space well enough that it is pleasant to use.
The touchscreen is nice and responsive. There should be no problems for use in tablet mode. The Intel Core i3-3229Y clocks in at 2x 1.40 GHz and works fine for most light tasks. Programs open swiftly and there are no issues in running Windows 8 well. With Intel HD 4000 this is not a device designed for gaming. Even relatively undemanding games should be avoided as only the most casual games would run well. With its low price and good combination of hardware the Acer Aspire P3-171-3322Y2G06as is a good choice for those who want a portable and versatile machine for light tasks and a tablet for entertainment. There are better choices out there, yet not for this price.
The Acer Aspire family is well known for both its desktop and laptop models. The Aspire P models are tablet-notebook hybrids and so not new things, but this effort should not go unnoticed. Acer has always been known for offering all the features at half of the market price.
This detachable 11.6 inches tablet is at featherweight. Web-surfing, motion pictures and gaming appear crystal clear on the HD display. Together with the Dolby Home Theater sound system, it is a perfect multimedia device. The rear camera with 5 MP lens is a welcome extra. Other marketing aspects here are the 10-point touchscreen with surreal typing experience and easier navigating between the apps. If you put it back into the keyboard dock, it turns into a powerful Intel ultrabook system. The Windows 8 Snap splitscreen improves the multitasking experience. Several applications can be place side by side and you can work with them simultaneously. A few trade-offs of the Acer Aspire P3 are the not sufficiently robust aluminium keyboard dock and that it only offers a single USB port. So, you cannot charge the Bluetooth keyboard and connect a mouse or external storage device at the same time. Considering the portability advantage, the decent performance, and that you get a tablet and a laptop for a single price, the Acer Aspire P3 is indeed a bargain.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
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 weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
