Acer announces Aspire P3, another Windows 8 hybrid ultrabook


Acer has officially announced the Acer Aspire P3, the new Windows 8 based tablet from the company. This new Aspire R3 has an 11.6-inch touchscreen display and a special cover that also acts as a physical keyboard. So you do not have to worry about searching aftermarket accessories to get yourself a good option for keyboard.

Technically the Acer Aspire P3 is a tablet, but if you combine it with the special cover, then the device seems more of a hybrid option. Of course that is a good point and gives you an advantages over many of the other tablets available in the market.

As far as this physical keyboard is concerned, Acer said that the keyboard is of the chiclet variety but is also full-sized. If you are comfortable with using a physical keyboard with tablets, then the Acer Aspire P3 is definitely worth checking out.

Finally, we check out the hardware specifications of the Acer Aspire P3. The Acer Aspire P3 has an 11.6-inch touchscreen display and runs on Windows 8 OS. The device is powered either by an Intel Core i3 or i5 processor and comes with internal storage options of 60 GB or 120 GB of SSD (Solid State Drive).

The tablet has a 5MP primary camera and a standard secondary camera. The battery is expected to last up to 6 hours of continuous use. Along with the physical keyboard, you also have the option to buy a stylus that can be used with the touchscreen display of the tablet.


So if you are planning to buy this tablet, I am happy to inform that you do not have to wait for a release date. Acer said that the Aspire P3 tablet is available for sale immediately and the prices start from $799.99.
