Full windows 8.1 suite in a compact package.
Value for money as it is bundled with Microsoft office suite.
Above average performance and good battery life.
Standard micro USB charger.
Get the original Acer Iconia W4 folder cum Bluetooth keyboard to experience full workstation portability.
Only one micro USB port which is also used as a charging terminal.
Can support only up to 32gb external SD card.
Wished if it were slimmer.
Wished I had bought the 3G version which was not launched until a much later date.

This is a small device that fills the gap between our mobile phones and desktop computing. Running on a full Windows environment, it opens the endless possibilities of mobile computing that mobile devices have yet to completely take up. The screen size, weight, battery life were key features that had been quite satisfactory.
The device may have been launched prematurely with many of the drivers failing during use. The latest patch update had solved several of these catastrophes. Software on this platform is also still in its infancy with many standard software not optimized for this screen size. In the desktop environment, it is quite useless to operate without external keyboard and mouse since touchscreen inputs are not accurate enough.
In terms of hardware, it is not intelligent to have USB port and charging port merged into one. This will mean I cannot charge the tablet while connected to my external harddisk. This limits the flexibility.
Next hardware point, the micro-usb port, it should be moving onto USB3.0 and we should not be stingy to offer a full-size port. Afterall, how many peripherals actually comes with a micro-usb plug?
Final point about hardware, the USB charger only works with the provided adapter. Laptop ports and other charging ports does not charge the tablet when plugged in. This means I cannot charge the tablet with my power bank, nor with my car chargers. Without bringing the OEM charger, mobility is greatly limited.
