Acer Aspire P3

 

Hands-on: A convertible Ultrabook-tablet with an 11.6-inch screen.

Although it may technically be able to call itself an Ultrabook,calling the Acer Aspire P3 such a thing feels like a misrepresentation ofsorts. It’s best thought-of as a convertible Windows 8 tablet. Ladling superlativesupon it may not do it any...

Acer Aspire P3 review

 

Hybrid Ultrabook offers tablet and laptop love in one package

Great price ; Good battery life ; Solid build

Limited storage ; Slow ; Last-gen hardware ; Poor keyboard

This hybrid laptop goes for the best of both worlds, but cuts corners on storage space and keyboard quality to get there. Overall the Acer Aspire P3 is a decent Windows 8 tablet that will suffice for those looking for a portable tablet that runs...

Core i5 Windows 8 tablet gone generic: Acer Aspire P3 reviewed

 

Sure, the P3 has about the same horsepower as a Surface Pro...but for a few hundred more, we'd prefer the Surface Pro. Solid but generic, the P3's a tweener.

The ; is a solidly built, full Core i5 Windows 8 tablet with its own keyboard for under $1,000. The lower-res display at least looks crisp.

Generic design, a cheap-feeling keyboard case, last-gen Intel processors.

Yet another Windows 8 Core i5 tablet, the Acer Aspire P3 has only one thing in its favor: it costs a maximum of $899.

Acer Aspire P3 hands-on review

 

One downside that we discovered with the Acer Aspire P3's design was that trying to separate the slate from the Bluetooth keyboard case was a bit of a nightmare. You are required to bend, tease and slide your finger across the top of the seal. It's...

The Acer Aspire P3 joins a growing gang on hybrid Ultrabooks. It’s design is good on the whole, with one minor flaw in the way that you remove the slate, but overall it seems to be a powerful and good looking brute.

The Acer Aspire P3-171-6820 is an affordable tablet hybrid powered by an Intel Core i5 CPU. It offers a responsive, albeit low resolution, 11.6-inch touch-screen, a detached Bluetooth keyboard, and relatively good battery life, but there are better...

Acer Aspire P3 Ultrabook

 

Acer's Aspire P3 Ultrabook is an 11.6in tablet with a folio-style keyboard case

Solid tablet ; Vibrant screen ; Good performance

Feels a little clumsy with keyboard case attached ; Keyboard case lacks a hole for the rear-facing camera

Acer's Aspire P3 makes for a very good Windows 8 tablet on its own, but the keyboard case that turns it into an Ultrabook could use some refinement.

Acer Aspire P3 review: a nice enough tablet, but wait for the refresh

 

The P3 is a well-priced Windows 8 tablet with fast disk speeds, but it would be a more compelling product with Intel's newer processors to help extend battery life.

Keyboard included ; Thin and light for a Core i5 tablet ; Quick bootup, fast SSD speeds ; Runs quietly, doesn't get too hot

Short battery life ; Relatively low-res display, no pen input ; No touchpad or pointing device ; Overall performance is weak compared to other tablets in this class

At $800 with a keyboard included, there are lots of things we can forgive about the P3: its 1,366 x 768 resolution, the lack of an active digitizer for pen input. But we can't shake the feeling that Haswell would have made this a much better tablet. In...

Acer Aspire P3 Review

 

Acer's Aspire P3 is a nice-looking slate that ships with a keyboard cover. But at $900, it's a hard sell, given similarly priced alternatives have better screens and battery life.

Given the Iconia Tab’s similar design, slightly better components, better and brighter screen, and much longer battery life, it’s hard to argue for the lesser P3, given the two tablets’ prices are so similar, at least as of this writing.
