In lieu of a trackpad there’s a FineTrack pointing stick between the G, H and B keys, with a pair of mouse buttons beneath the screen. Although it balances reasonably well on a desk, the relative weighting of the g keyboard and the g tablet make it top-heavy and prone to fall forwards off the knees; tapping at the screen only makes this more likely to happen. After installing Windows 8 on my Acer Iconia tab w the rear camera is not installed and I can’t find a way to add it. It’s the other apps that you want Windows for in the first place that don’t always work well enough with touch. A notch above expectation. It cannot detect the rear camera which is factory installed after upgrading to windows 8.

The magnets that hold the Tab in place on the USB connector work fairly well, but we didn’t find them quite secure enough – you can slide the latch at the front but that pops up a hook right in front of the space bar.

To shut it down the Ring and return to Windows you tap a ‘close’ icon in the top right-hand corner. The W’s screen bezel has a button that duplicates the Windows key’s function on the keyboard plus a VGA-resolution webcam, and so is much less cluttered than the bezel of most convertible Tablet PCs.

There is an accelerometer that handles automatic screen rotation in all four orientations. In lieu of a trackpad there’s a FineTrack pointing stick between the G, H and B keys, with a pair of mouse buttons beneath the screen. The Iconia Tab W wants to be the best of both worlds; in the end it’s one of the camefa Windows tablets we’ve seen so far barring the small size of the on-screen keyboard and that’s both praise and complaint.


The plastic ‘hook’ located beneath the space bar has to be pushed down when not in use, so as not to interfere with using the keyboard. Arguably, because the Acer Iconia Tab W costs as much as a notebook and can be used like a notebook, it needs to be able to substitute, percent of the time, for a notebook.

Sorry this didn’t help. When I look at imaging devices in Device Manager it only shows a front camera installed.

There are two cameras: The absence of a wrist rest makes for slightly uncomfortable typing, but some may find this more of an issue than others. Touch-friendly Windows 7 features like pinned icons in the task bar, thumbnails tap icons for open programs and jump lists swipe your finger from the icon work better though there’s still lots of room for improvement.

The best Chromebook And when you run apps that take advantage of the GPU for acceleration – like the latest generation of browsers, you get very respectable results. An understated laptop with plenty of gaming grit. But it’s a little too heavy so that while you can clip it in place as a screen cover which is pretty much an admission that you are going to want it fairly regularly and it does latch in place that way round, that turns the Tab from an slender screen into a chunky netbook.

This thread is locked. The tablet slots into the optional keyboard dock at a fixed angle, and the relative weights of the two sections makes the docked arrangement rather top-heavy. Both notebooks have 13in. Another takes you to My Journal, a place you can store web clippings and other information.

This is last year’s GPU crammed into a processor that beats an Atom on multi-tasking, which is a good match for the kinds of programs you want to run on a inch screen and control with your fingers. That’s a shame, as there’s definitely a case for a finger-friendly Windows 7 overlay.

Business users may be disappointed by the absence of a fingerprint scanner.

A solid 2-in-1 detachable with excellent connectivity. And although the Acer Ring overlay is easily ignored if its services don’t appeal, Windows 7 just isn’t finger-friendly enough to function well in tablet format.

Welcome as the option of a physical keyboard is, it’s not quite a success. The reason you need the keyboard is that Windows 7 is a curate’s egg of a tablet operating system. Nithyananda J Replied on November 5, Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site.
