Reviews for the Acer Iconia W510

82% Review Acer Iconia W510 Convertible | Notebookcheck
Keyboard tablet. Tablets together with a keyboard dock are currently the latest craze among PC manufacturers: the lightweight of a tablet without having to waive on the comfort of a hardware keyboard plus more interfaces sounds good to the customer. Acer runs in the same vein with its Iconia W5 series and we scrutinized the Iconia W510.
75% Acer Iconia W510 Hybrid Tablet Review

The bottom line is that as a PC, it still feels like a slow and limited netbook, and considering its $650 price tag that's just too much of a compromise. With that kind of budget you're likely better off getting a better notebook or better tablet. Or, if you can spring the extra $250-$350, the Core i5 equipped Surface Pro will run Windows 8 without the slowdowns.

60% Acer ICONIA W510: Budget Win 8 Hybrid Tablet Reviewed
Source: Techtree.com English
The Acer Iconia W510 is one of the first Windows 8 tablets with a convertible form factor that we have reviewed. Despite its Atom processor, it performs quite well and is good for office work. The IPS screen looks good and is very responsive. The build quality is very good. While its small size makes it very portable, its weight of 1.3 kg makes it surprisingly heavier than a standard netbook. Although there is a 64 GB SSD, there is hardly 20 GB free space available for the user and this might need to be augmented via microSD card. An exceptionally long battery life with the extra battery in the keyboard dock makes it a device that can be taken on a trip without having to worry about not finding a charging point. Priced at Rs 46,000, this is possibly one of the cheapest Windows 8 hybrid devices available in the market and we think it is worth a buy.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3650: Integrated processor graphics card (e.g. in the Atom N2800) without dedicated memory. Most likely based on a PowerVR design similar to the GMA 500 but with higher clock rates. These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible. » 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.

1.266 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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.


73.4%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
