    Acer Iconia W4 review

    By 11 February 2014

    The Acer Iconia W4 is the company's latest stab at a Windows 8 tablet. It's a step up from the earlier W3 model thanks to Intel Bay Trail Atom processor innards and a higher resolution 8.1-inch display. That's Windows 8.1 in an 8.1-inch tablet - it sounds...

    Acer has used the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 to position itself in the budget smartphone wars. Its unveiling of the Liquid Z5, priced at €169 (£140), sounds like a hot contender for the Motorola Moto G in terms of price. But can the Acer's relatively...

    Acer C7 Chromebook hands-on, the no-nonsense Haswell Chromebook improves over its predecessor

    By 12 September 2013

    We got our mitts on the latest Acer C7 Chromebook at the Intel Developers Forum in San Francisco. It's been some nine months since we saw the earlier C7 model, and with the new Intel Haswell chip on board this is a leaner, meaner machine. But it's still...

    Tablets have exploded on to the tech scene quite unlike any other product in the last few years. The Acer Iconia A1-810 can't perhaps be awarded with the same explosive level of anticipation compared to the levels raised by the announcements of the iPad...
