I think the best way to describe this piece of kit is to say that to all intents and purposes it's a large (very large) android tablet. The only real difference is that this needs to be plugged into the mains to work, there are no batteries and even if there were I don't believe anyone would cheerfully lug it about! Having said that it's certainly light enough to move from place to place but you wouldn't want to be doing that while using it. Comes complete with Keyboard, Mouse and power unit.
It's touch screen, which functions even if one is not quite touching the icon/app. I don't have a recent android phone or tablet so am not sure if that's normal or not, it isn't on any of my Apple kit. The `operating system' is 4.1.2 which was the last version of Jelly Bean I believe. If one needs Kit Kat I guess one will have to wait until Acer releases it's version.
The screen is 1920x1080 which is full HD and a joy both to view and use, but perhaps not as fine as you might wish if you are intending to do a lot of photographic work. Comes with two USB ports, though one will need to be used if you connect the keyboard. It also comes with Bluetooth so if you need two USB ports you could use a bluetooth keyboard instead (I haven't tried this but presume it will work). Has something called MHL for phones, again I haven't tried. Headphone socket and an HDMI port. As supplied it has 1Gb of Ram and 16Gb of flash memory. It also takes an SD card, I presume up to 128Gb but this is nowhere stated and I don't have a card of that size to try but it works well enough with 32Gb ones. It has a 1.6 Nvidia Tegra T33 graphics card. As well as a 2MP front, non adjustable, camera.Read more ›
