The Acer Iconia W3 is the first 8-inch Windows 8 tablet, offered at an affordable price. is equipped with a 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor—the same model CPU found in the Dell XPS 10 and HP Envy X2—with 2GB of DDR2 memory. It's worth noting that while this tablet does run the x86 version of Windows 8 (rather than the crippled Windows RT), is does so in 32-bit mode, so it won't run any software optimized for 64-bit systems.
