    Seems like a good price.
    I wonder whether the keyboard will be annoying to use. My experience with bluetooth keyboards has been very poor.

      I've never had any dramas with my Logitech Bluetooth keyboard. It only likes syncing with its dongle but once that's all done there isn't too much dramas.

      I have used the keyboard at the shop, what I found was apart from the fact that the tablet sits very close to the top row of keys and the obvious that it is in a folding case (not like the t100 or other units that have a proper hinged keyboard with a second battery) the keyboard itself feels good despite having a very low travel.

    Good price. I would have preferred this over my Surface Pro 1 just for the better battery life and screen size.

      Keep in mind this feels lika a much bigger and heavier unit than the surface (I don't know the specs but have used both, this is 11.6"), not sure if that matters to you

  •  

    great specs but a bit old

    fhd too

    but problem is acer build quality is VERY spotty with a laundry list of issues

    also single usb port is lol

      Have had the 10" w510 with matching keyboard here with daily use for over a year and not a single issue, most of Acer products are budget low end stuff but the windows tablets were a more premium product upon release than most of their notebook and android tabs line up. They definitely make some very low end stuff though

    Can't see myself ever spending that much on anything Acer make.

    I've had issues with a guy that works at Computer Alliance that had a bad attitude - and that was when I was looking to buy, not when I was going back for a warranty claim. I'm sure there are probably ok staff there, but I'd hate to be dealing with him for anything that goes wrong after how he treated me as a potential customer.

    Just under 1kg, damn heavy for a tablet. The T100, though much slower cpu and half storage, is half the weight.

    •  

      It's almost 12 inch screen so a lot bigger than normal tablets like iPad though.

    I have the Samsung 700T1C, very similar product to this one, I wanted a tablet that i could compute on, so i brought a slate and honestly never been happier. Yes it is twice as heavy as an Ipad if not three times as the Air, but who cares it's got an i5 and the last for about 5 real life hours, programming and word processing.

      I have the TF810c and yes it's a laptop replacement that can be used as a tablet, I can't actually get work done on a tablet so the proper hinged keyboard is a must for me, never looked back

    I've had one of these for about 8 months now. I use it like a notebook, it's just too heavy to be a nice tablet. Most annoying part of it is that you can't leave it in the keyboard case and put it in the dock, so my dock goes unused. The dock is a USB3 hub, so it would be quite useful. The rubber is annoying enough that if you buy it, you'll leave it in there all the time.

    Keyboard is mushy and nothing to write home about, but still a thousand times better than typing on a touchscreen. Basically makes me want to buy a surface pro 3 if I wasn't so cheap. Screen has a chronic ghosting issue (read up on it online), looks terrible when you close apps but isn't really that bad while using it (if I close a window though I can still see it for a while). It has lessened over time too.

    Battery life is nice and so is the hardware, more than enough for anything someone should use a device like this for (super portable notebook with the benefit of touchscreen). Despite having a bluetooth mouse I find myself just touching the screen a lot of the time, much quicker. I bought an 8" dell tablet to get the same kind of thing with more portability and I instantly missed having the keyboard always there.

    i've had this since easter, very happy with it but definitely not for everyone.

    Consider it a laptop, but with tablet capabilities on the odd occasion you need it. i've seen a lot of comments about acer products in general and their build quality, but i have no complaints.
