Summary: 10/18/2012: acer w500p touch screeen with docking keyboard, c-60AMD which includes the turbo boost to 1.3ghz, and the upgraded graphics chips, windows 7 os, 32gb hard drive, 2gb ram, bought this extremely cheap at a thrift store thinking for that little money i'll try it out. ive always used 14-15 inch systems otherwise. i really like this 10.1 inch unit, using it right now.
Summary: This is definitely a perfect first time tablet. I was very excited to get this tablet but after using it for a little while...it's whatever. It's like the Nintendo Wii when it first came out....everyone used it for a week...and now it hasn't been touched for a long time.
Pros: LONG Battery Life, Touch Screen is OK, Docking Station is OK
Summary: After three weeks of heavy use I can say that the w500 isn't amazing because it can dance at all: its amazing because it can dance with the stars. I would give it 4.5 stars if half stars were allowed, but they aren't, so it gets four stars because its not quite perfect. I will dispose of the complaints up front so I can concentrate on the good stuff. 1.
Summary: Being an android fan, i ordered this on behalf of someone. Luckily they're not as obsessed with the details as I am, and they're perfectly happy with it. The build quality could be better but its not bad. A good feature is the inclusion of the detachable keyboard. I guess the device itself is not flawed. But running Windows 7 on it is a bit of a push. I think Acer did the best they could given the inherent Windows handicap.
Summary: I have never written a review before but wanted to give a thumbs up for this little tablet. I received this little jewel yesterday. In fact, I am writing this review on the computer. I really like it. Some of the video reviews I looked at did not give it much of a good shake. However there were many good comments on this site, so I went for it. I think that some try to compare this Windows based tab with the ipad. I don't think they are comparable.
Summary: Let me start by saying, I own other windows "tablets" , the xoom and an Ipad2. cons: as stated USB on bottom and you loose them when docked, no biggie dock has 2 connectors as well, but the problem is, they are both on the bottom. I can not have anything attached to the USB when it sits on my lap or other, if I do, I have to hold the tablet in the air while I watch tv on it. I have to disconnect my usb device and connect it to the dock.
Summary: After a little over a week of working with the Acer W500 tablet I'm convinced folks claiming Windows 7 makes for an inferior tablet experience simply haven't taken time to update and fine tune the operating system. I admit, when I first unboxed the unit and began using it I had a sinking feeling that it would be quickly re-boxed and returned to Amazon.
Summary: I have had this tablet since it was released two weeks ago. The look and feel of the unit is great. The touch screen is very responsive and HD videos look great on it. You get 2 gigs of system mem and 32gig SSD. Of course you get a full operation system in win 7. Web surfing is no problem the only site I have had a problem with is the Apple movie trailer site. I am not sure if it is the unit or the fact I am using Explorer 9.
Summary: 24 Hour Review I have had this tablet/netbook/convertable for a day and I'll relay my first impressions. First the oddities. 1. When attached to the keyboard, it sits at one angle. No ajustment. This doesnt bother me much, but it might some people. 2. The keyboard is slightly off center to the center of the screen. This does bother me a bit as a touch typist; and the home ribs on the F and J keys are the line at the bottom. Oddity or benefit?
Summary: I got the Acer Iconia w500 about a week ago and no I did not pay the price noted here shop around you will find it cheaper with free shipping. The unit is a great very well made small computer. It is well constructed and the touch reponse is very quick and snappy. 1080P play back is very smooth I used a video from Amazon Unbox to test it and the unit performed perfectly. The seperate key board is great.
