5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 15 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Acer Iconia W700 11.6-inch Tablet with Keyboard (Silver) (Intel Core i5 3317U 1.7GHz, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, Camera, Wi-Fi, BT, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
I've had my W700 for about a month and I'm loving it! It's perfect for what I want. The 1080p display is probably it's biggest asset. It's super clear and the viewing angles are superb. The keyboard that come with it is really nice too, a lot like a mac keyboard. I've also bought a blue tooth mouse to go with it which instantly connected with ease. Another point to mention is that the tablet comes with a nice case/stand for on the go which allows it to be super portable. It does come with a dock thing as well, but I haven't used that as the case is just better.

I use the tablet primarily to do coding on the go. Those who say Windows 8 is bad for developing on are wrong. Though I've only been coding in Java and Perl so far. Eclipse runs perfectly and so does git. What else do I need?

Games run quite well turned down to lower settings. Steam runs nicely however to play games you need to tweak the configuration settings to allow for the high DPI screen on the games .exe file in the common folder. This only needs to be done once for each new game, but it's not much effort. The rule is, if it doesn't run, change to high DPI settings. This can include installers if you use a USB disc drive. Red Alert 2!

I think that's all.

Hopefully this intel helps!

Thanks was looking for a tablet to run eclipse on the go, but searching google ended up being pointless, how well does this cope building large projects?

I haven't tried building anything too big, but I'd say it would be okay. Obviously it's much slower than on a desktop. I'd have a look at this if I were you: http://www.johnlewis.com/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-convertible-ultrabook-intel-core-i7-8gb-ram-128gb-ssd-13-3-touch-screen-silver/p457425. I saw it in store and it is niiiiice.
