Introduction

Roughly two years ago, tablets were the big things in the industry and it was then followed by the Ultrabook craze. Now after two years of seeing both devices evolved tremendously, we have come to a point where both devices are combined into one. These devices were showcased in many of the major IT exhibitions and shows such as the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and COMPUTEX Taipei. While most of them were ready to go, they had to wait for the launch of Microsoft's latest touch-centric operating system, Windows 8.

The moment Windows 8 was launched, we received an avalanche of Windows 8 devices for testing. While they were a bit late to the game as they launched their Windows 8 devices in November, Acer was not to be outdone and they actually garnered a lot of attention due to the sleek design and performance in its latest devices.

One of the more unique devices from Acer's latest lineup is the ICONIA W700, which doesn't follow the conventional convertible design where the device either has a built-in keyboard like a notebook PC or comes with a keyboard dock. So what actually makes the ICONIA W700 so unique? Well, read on to find out why we think it's an Ultra-Tablet.
