People I been using this for past 3 weeks now and got to say this is a great portable tablet. Sure screen is not IPS and within a few days I forgotten screen view issue. The screen very crystal clear and very viewable viewing it. The bad screen hype is overblown. Have used this for about 15 hours and not once have I gotten aggravated at the screen quality. Is it retina? No. Is it totally usable? Absolutely! and also gets my work done!
Also the battery life and performance have been great and laster for 9hrs and stand bye can last for close to 2 weeks and have about 65% battery life left. Quality and materials are plastic but also top notch.
For the money it's a great device to throw in your bag or use on the couch and not worry about.
Upgrading it too windows 8.1 OS made it more better. It is fast & fluid, Love the Snap feature opening two apps side by side. Android or Ipad tablets can't even do that at all.
Acer will come out with new W3 on September. But using this W3 is very good to use. Again People are just overblown of screen issues to much. Viewing photos or videos proves to be an excellent FULL BLOWN Windows 8 Computer Tablet (NOT RT)
