    that's really neat. was thinking of getting an ultrabook in the near future (just for light productivity/student type stuff) but this solution as a convertible tablet looks pretty slick.

    Don't discount the possibility of a standard tablet along with a small bluetooth or USB wireless keyboard/mouse solution, too. There's a lot of options out there to get a real keyboard.

    Love to get my hands on the W700. They all seem to have trouble getting it to seat in the dock. I hope that's not an issue. It looks significantly thicker than all previous Acer Iconia tabs. I'm really interested in a full-on review once one of the big sites can score a production unit.


    "And a special dock that it slides right out of!" And a preposition that you should never end a sentence with!

    the dock looks a touch cheap, and the tablet is a little thick for sure, esp compared to Asus offerings. but we'll definitely have a lot of options, not just one.

    Acer's dock for the A500 is pretty much crap, too... the reason I never got one. Interesting they ditched the docking port in favor of a slide-in USB and power connector.

    I like the layout of the dock and the design, but it's plasticky and I'm not sure the connectors that they have are going to last. One decent miss by the tablet and they're both sideways or completely broken off.

    There's an existing issue with the power connector breaking off in the A500 and W500 because it's so thin. It's a carelessness issue, but it needlessly exists. I can't really tell 100%, but the one in the videos doesn't seem much if any bigger.
