Last week, I got a snazzy new PC. It took me a while to get it but it is everything I’ve wanted it to be. The PC in question is the Acer Aspire S7and its glam with its sleek white exterior and silver interior. Not only that but its touch! I’ve been beside it constantly while travelling from Seattle to Belize to Salt Lake City and cannot get enough of it. Needless, to say, I’m a big fan of Acer and of the innovative PCs they are bringing to market. So, I’m thrilled that this week we are joining up with Acer to talk about their Windows 8 PC lineup including the S7 and then more specifically the Acer Iconia W510 tablet.
The Acer Iconia W510 tabletcan be used as a tradition clamshell, can be reversed, can be twisted and has a removable keyboard. Essentially, it is every form function you could want in a computing device that is 10.1”. Not to mention is just $799 with 18 hours of battery life, a keyboard doc and HD Gorilla Glass 2 display. Plus, it has 3 weeks of standby power and connects to hotspots in 2.5 seconds. That is looking pretty good to me.
And because we love all of those who join the chat every week, we are giving one of these slick devices away to a #winchat participant!

Does the dock or the tablet have a connector for connecting to a HDTV or a second monitor ?
What is the largest size external memory card that the dock will take ?
Need one of these devices . Lightweight and to be able to use it as a tablet and\or laptop is the best ! And the battery life per charge !
Hope that I win this .
Really would like to try one of these, but we are on a limited budget right now. I've heard a lot of reviews about acer, but havent been able to get one and hopefully to be able to win the tablet would be great.
I would really like to try one of these fabulous devices out! & what better way, then to WIN one thru winchat??! :) i am a beginner for sure, but everyone i have talked to says they love them! So, how easy are they to navigate thru & learn about its functionalities?
Do we need to RSVP?
I can't help but say I love them all! Most intriguing for me would be the battery life! and removeable keyboard! @firstclasskris
Kristina- have you tried connecting to WiFi with your S7 for extended periods of time. Just returned my S7 because of Acer driver issues?
