Deal: £249 Acer W3-810 Windows 8 tablet

The Acer W3-810 is the one of the first of a new crop of tablets that run on an Intel Atom processor and comes with Windows 8 and a full version of Office 2013 Home and Student edition. That is not unlike what Windows RT offered, except that there's no Outlook for now.

It is currently on sale at PC World for £249. Note that a 64GB version is also available for £299. That tablet is powered by a dual-core Intel Atom Z2760 CPU clocked at 1.8GHz with 1MB of cache and a PowerVR SGX545 GPU.

Other features include an 8in display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution, 2GB of RAM, 32GB onboard storage without any card slot (which is odd), microUSB, microHDMI, a front-facing 2-megapixel webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, up to eight hours battery life and a slew of applications.

These include Word, Excel, One Note and Powerpoint, all from Microsoft, Norton Online Backup utilities, Nero BackItUp 12 and a few Acer ones ( Media, Photo etc). You can check out Acer Iconia W3 64GB review here.
