Computex Taipei 2013 - Acer unveiled the Iconia W3 today at Computex, something that might actually get your interested spiked. It's an 8-inch tablet that runs Windows 8, and gives you all of the power of your desktop, in your hands.

Acer claims an "all-day" battery life, which I don't like to hear because that can mean anything these days, but we'll see how it goes if we can secure a sample to review. The 8-inch display has a 1280x800 resolution, and an Intel processor inside, which makes it a little special. Windows 8 makes it special, as it can run Windows 8's desktop applications, with Microsoft's Home and Office included, and the ability to run all of the usual Windows Store apps, games and content.
