Acer's Windows 8 Tablets Will Make Heads Spin

Acer’s unveiled its Windows 8 tablets as well as touchscreen ultrabook lines at Computex, highlighting how touch is going to be a key component of computing from now on.

Acer’s Computex announcements include the very nice looking Iconia W510 tablet; a Windows 8 RT 10.1 inch tablet with a convertible form factor that also allows it to be rotated through 295 degrees.

The Iconia W700, on the other hand, is a more conventional Windows 8 tablet, albeit one with a 1920×1080 pixel display and three onboard USB 3.0 ports.

US prices for the S7 are apparently listed at between $US999 and $US1799; there’s no word on Australian availability as yet.
