This 11.6-inch, 1920-by-1080 device screams tablet. Note the design: There’s no clamshell apparatus in sight. Nonetheless, the W700 has the components of an Ultrabook. For extra productivity, it comes equipped with a Bluetooth keyboard and a dock that props it up to 70 degrees for your viewing comfort. The dock also does a decent job of holding up the W700 in portrait mode. Unfortunately, a high resolution on a small screen leads to tiny text, scroll bars and icons in desktop mode, making the W700 difficult to accurately use in some scenarios. Still, it’s not a bad setup for $799 with some upgradeable options.
We did a hands-on of the W700 earlier this month, and now we’re waiting for Acer to send us a final review unit.
