The ICONIA W700 is a brute of a tablet. With an array of extras — not to mention the fastest hardware we’ve seen in a tablet — the high price tag is easier to justify. If you want a tablet that does it all and don’t mind paying with a lower battery life and hotter operating t...

It’s trully a great ultrabook replacement and you’ll probably never need a laptop again. It does have its disadvantages, like the huge size, but at least we’ve got a Full HD screen and top notch CPU.

Expert Reviews

In everyday use, we were impressed by the W700’s high-resolution display. It isn’t the brightest around, but the IPS panel has superb viewing angles and produces vivid colours. The screen’s glossy finish helped produce the stunning visuals, but it also created unwanted light reflections. It responde...

The ICONIA W700 is a brute of a tablet. With an array of extras — not to mention the fastest hardware we’ve seen in a tablet — the high price tag is easier to justify. If you want a tablet that does it all and don’t mind paying with a lower battery life and hotter operating temperatures, this speedy jack-of-all-trades is the one for you.

A hybrid Windows 8 tablet that throws a desktop dock and Bluetooth keyboard into the fray

from TrustedReviews

The Acer Iconia W700 is not a bad product, but it makes more promises than it keeps. It's neither a great tablet, nor a great laptop replacement as its battery life is too short and the supplied accessories too cumbersome. The only genuine bright spot is the screen, but it's not enough on its own to convince us.

Overall the W700 is a great device, once you get past the rather odd dock and kickstand combo and use the nice leather case instead you’ll be happy. It is a powerful device that comes in a variety of specs, there is a model with just the tablet, the leather case and an integrated keyboard, there is also a Intel Core i5 128GB model as well. Offered a Microsoft Surface RT or the Iconia W700 I would go for the W700 as it is more functional, although if I had to move around a lot or take it on the road I’d think twice. If you’re looking for a Windows 8 tablet and you don’t fancy the Microsoft offerings then Acer certainly have a wide range of Windows 8 devices to choose from, if only this tablet was a bit thinner, a bit lighter and dare I say it possibly running Windows RT.

In everyday use, we were impressed by the W700’s high-resolution display. It isn’t the brightest around, but the IPS panel has superb viewing angles and produces vivid colours. The screen’s glossy finish helped produce the stunning visuals, but it also created unwanted light reflections. It responded reasonably well to touch controls, with a small amount of flex in the glass and the occasional hiccup with registration, but we could easily navigate Microsoft’s modern user interface.

The Acer Iconia W700 comes the closest of all the tablets we've seen to being able to replicate the experience of a laptop, in a true tablet form. While you certainly get a lot for your money here, we worry that the poor performance limits the life of this hybrid PC, and would push those looking for a rich Windows 8 experience to look at the Intel Core i5 version.

Acer’s Iconia W700 is a reasonable attempt at a consumer Windows 8 tablet, and it’s keenly priced. It has serious weaknesses, however. On the move, the lack of a docking keyboard makes it far less usable than many rival tablets or hybrid devices, and the absence of active stylus support hinders its appeal as a dedicated tablet. Factor in the modest performance and, although the price may be right, this tablet doesn’t quite make the grade.

Acer’s Iconia W700 is an interesting take on the PC’s future that can be surprisingly functional despite its unusual design. We used the docked system to write articles, edit photos, and browse the Web, then un-docked it to play Cut The Rope and watch YouTube. Though a laptop or traditional tablet would be better in some situations, the Iconia is good enough in most. However, there are some problems. Windows 8 isn’t the best tablet operating system, and Acer hasn’t properly thought out certain elements of the dock and tablet. The buttons should be more accessible when the tablet is held in portrait mode, and the dock should allow for one-hand operation and tilt adjustment. Weight and bulk are also an issue.

A solid product with some issues

from Wired

As slates go, the W700 looks good when you’re on the go. The aluminum chassis is streamlined, cool, and sturdy. The screen looks good, too. But general difficulties with Windows 8 and a poorly-conceived cradle system just don’t help you make the most of your investment.

As a demonstration that tablets can use Ultrabook-class processors and still get by as tablets, the W700 is a fine device. As something you should run right out and buy right now, it falls short—upcoming Ivy Bridge and Haswell look to address most of its faults, and based on what we've seen of Haswell so far they'll be as thin as these Ultrabooks-turned-tablets can get before Broadwell chips start coming out in 2014. Hold off on this one, but rest assured that these kinds of tablets don't have to sacrifice battery life for performance.
