Deal: Acer Iconia W510 convertible laptop down to £400

The availability of Windows 8 towards the end of last year brought about a number of exotic design, mostly from Lenovo and Acer. The Iconia W510, from Acer, is one of them. It is a convertible laptop that features a removable display that acts as a tablet and a docking station that converts the tablet into an ultra-thin device.

The whole thing is powered by a Clovertrail-based Intel Atom Z2760 processor, one which is clocked at 1.8GHz, has two cores and 1MB of cache. There's also 2GB of RAM, a 32GB SSD, a 10.1in 1,366 x 768 pixel HD IPS display, Intel HD graphics, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, microHDMI, microSD, microUSB, full USB, an Acer Crystal Eye HD webcam and a removable docking station that can double the onboard battery life from nine hours to 18 hours.

On top of that, there is the ubiquitous Windows 8 OS plus Acer's own cloud-based solution called AcerCloud. The tablet comes with Acer's Always Connect technology which can connect to hotspots in a mere 2.5 seconds. Undocked, the W510 is 8.8mm thick and weighs a mere 580g.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
