"Good tablet/netbook with windows 8. Never used with 7."3.5 starson by ndhp1234
Pros: Excellent screen, two USB ports, full SD card slot, full HDMI, and easily portable. Responsive touch screen.
Cons: Battery life could be better, keyboard dock is nice but is too light and therefore can easily tip over, processor should really be 1.5 GHZ, SSD should be at least 64GBs, would be better if there was a 4gb of ram option.
Summary: I never intended on using this laptop with windows 7. The minute I purchased this I planned on using windows 8 developers preview with it. I personally think this makes the tablet a much better device. Windows 8 in my opinion is much more touch friendly. I think Acer has put together a great windows tablet, but really should have put a little more power under the hood. the specs just are not adequate. As I stated in the cons the specs should be what I stated above. You can't play Netflix movies in HD (you have to drop the quality in Netflix's settings) which is a shame for such a great screen. Also at times I get some lag while browsing the internet. This is still a very capable device. I have played some graphic intensive games that are a few years old now without any hiccup. That in part is because this device does have some dedicated video memory. I also use Microsoft office and dragon dictation without any hiccups. The battery life is also a bit of a disappointment. It isn't all that bad. If I turn down the brightness I can easily get 5 hours out of it, and for the most part that is adequate for what I need, but at the same time I don't like having to handicap my experience to get max battery life. My last note is the keyboard dock. The CNET reviewer makes it seem as if it is such a hassle to dock and undock. I don't see what the problem is. The biggest issue I have with the keyboard dock is stability. The screen is so heavy and the keyboard is so light that a slight push will send the then netbook toppling over. Acer should have added weight to the keyboard (giving the whole thing more stability), by putting a battery in the keyboard that would charge the tablet. Obviously all the things I suggested would add costs to the device. I love my windows tablet, but I also bought it refurbished for 355 dollars. I would not pay 520 dollars for the price I got it at I am happy.
