Summary: Bluetooth give a lot of problems, docking station only works USB port while it is plugged! Too many parts make it no so portable, mouse is necesary in the keyboard. Battery life is good. Samsung ativ pc pro is a much better option .
Summary: I love the portability, the power, and the flexibility of this machine (but those are all reasons to love a tablet pc). I hate the included keyboard case though. It is too hard to get the machine in and out, which means I almost never use the docking station. Instead, I have a ton of cords, connectors, and hubs that I have to keep up with instead of everything being connected to the dock.
Summary: I had to disable the touchscreen out of frustration. I now use it docked and connected to an external monitor, keyboard and mouse. The problem is, the left side of the screen randomly register touches at intervals. Initially, I would log off and log in to "fix" the issue temporarily, but that doesn't work anymore. I would have sent it back if I were not living overseas now.
Summary: I bought this to use as a traveling computer so I didn't have to drag my laptop all over. Windows 8 takes some getting used to as the functoinality is totally diffferent (I'm sure you already knew that!) I still like using the mouse as I don't get the pinpoint accuracy from touch screens that I am used to, a little old school I suppose. The processor can't keep up with the mouse and there is a horendous lag.
Summary: lets start with the cons : 1 did you ever heard of a tablet nowadays that doesn't have a screenshot button ?!!! yup it doesn't and the windows button + volume down does not work here .. and acer does not give a **** about what you think 2 for some reason always the first tap on the screen is not felt 3 also windows button need a strong push to work 4 sound quality is not good 5 battery live 5 hours if you use it for browsing on power saving mode and 3-2 hours if watching...
Potentially great tablet for a techie/knowledgeable individual

Summary: While this tablet is arguably one of the best high quality and value windows 8 tablets out there, the flaws limit the customers to technical people. Here is my review after 6 months of usage. If you want something that works perfectly out of the box and without ever having to do anything to it, this device is not for you.
Summary: The Acer Iconia W700 is a fairly nice computer but the implementation of Windows 8 is poorly executed. In my opinion it's a horiffic disaster. The idea is to use a touch screen instead of a mouse and cursor, but you'll find that there are a few buttons out there that don't respond to tapping with your finger. You can tap all day and nothing happens, until you connect a mouse and invoke the cursor, at which time you can click and do what you want.
