Torn between a new laptop and a tablet? Maybe you should consider getting both – but in one device. When you’re killing time in an airport lounge, Acer’s Iconia W511 Tablet and Docking Station combo is a touch tablet; when productivity matters, you can clatter away on the keyboard.
Even better: when attached to the dock, the tablet’s 25,6-cm Full HD multi-touch LED-backlit display can be pivoted up to 295 degrees, allowing you to share content or presentations with others.
Battery life when connected to the keyboard is a whopping 18 hours; it can remain in standby mode for up to 3 weeks on a single charge. Other features include Intel’s Atom Z2760 processor, 2 GB memory, 64 GB of embedded MMC storage, stereo speakers, Micro SD card reader, dual independent display support and NFC connectivity.
Price: about R8 500. Contact Acer on 011-233 6100 or visit www.acer.co.za
