I must say I’ve been impressed with some of Acer’s recent products and I hope to have that same feeling when Windows 8 is released!

It has been over four months since Acer first revealed its Windows 8 lineup, but now that the launch of Microsoft’s next operating system is closer than ever, we’re getting all the information we’ve been waiting for on Acer’s 11.6-inch Iconia W700 tablet.
Acer designed the W700 as a tablet that can replace a traditional laptop, and as such, it has equipped the tablet with a Ivy Bridge, 1.8GHz Core i3 processor in its base configuration (upgradable to Core i5). As we first saw at Computex, the tablet has a fantastic-looking 1080p, 11.6-inch display, which should give enough space to get some work done. The rest of the specifications are rounded out by 4GB of RAM, a 64GB SSD, 1-megapixel front and 5-megapixel rear cameras, and a Micro HDMI and USB 3.0 port. In terms of design, the tablet weighs in at 2.3 pounds, and it’s fairly handsome with distinctive orange speaker ports and unibody construction. At this configuration the Iconia W700 will cost $799.99 when it launches on Windows 8 day: October 26th. If you opt for the i5 processor and twice the memory, it’ll run you $999.99.
