Does it come with a screen cleaning cloth?

Imagine if you added two hinges, a keyboard and touchpad, then you could use it like a real computer lol..

Short of needing to add a mouse there is no reason you can't use it as a 'real computer' now. If you added all that junk to it you'd have an over glorified netbook

A number of Windows 8 tablets will have docs that will add keyboard, pointing device, USB ports, battery power and that hinge you spoke of.

I don’t think the Acer Iconia W700 has that though given its doc has this sliding in system with no physical keyboard attachment. It does have a choice of Core i3 and Core i5 (Ivy Bridge) processors though and Intel Thunderbolt port.

The max SSD option at 128GB seems a little small. The Asus Eee Slate EP121 Core i5 tablet PC uses a mSATA slot and is easily upgraded (same for Bluetooth / WiFi card) but I’m not sure how easy it would be to upgrade the Acer Iconia W700.

Definitely no a netbook or anything like it given the specs.

Acer recently axed the Thunderbolt port. There goes the possibility of pairing it up with a GTX 680.

Good call,....

I noticed they omitted Intel Thunderbolt from the press release, which, should have tipped me off. Its too bad, as that was a distinguishing factor and now I don’t really see what sets it apart from other offerings.
