[sc:hardware-category ]A while ago I picked up an Acer W3, which apparently didn’t like the 3 foot plus drop from my nightstand 😉
The big crack from side to side of the screen pretty much made it necessary for me to find a new tablet. fortunately Dell released their Venue Pro 8.
The W3 was pretty chunky, but work reasonably well. The Dell is light and runs circles around the W3.
- Brilliant display.
- Standard USB charging.
- A nice textured back for an easy grip.
Two little things of note:
- The auto brightness is far too dim, you have to disable it.
- The Windows button is in a little bit of a weird place, so if you join a domain and need to do a W+Power combo, it’s a contorted one-handed affair.
