When you first take a glance at the Acer Aspire Z3-700, you would think that it’s a monitor. The thing is, it’s not. It’s a far more interesting device as inside its body lies a battery that can give it a battery life of about five hours. This means that this is, in fact, a gigantic tablet that has a 17.3-inch Full HD resolution screen.
The Acer Aspire Z3-700 is a 17-inch Computer/Tablet
The Acer Aspire Z3-700 that is not confined to a desk, but you won’t certainly bring it to a coffee shop either. You might move it downstairs to show your guests some pictures, or hand the tablet over to the kids so they can watch something while you cook.
On the device’s rear, there are two kickstands. This will keep the computer upright. It does let the display stay in position, but it does feel a bit flimsy. Do also note that both kickstands need to be in a position for the display to stand upright. Otherwise, if you just let the device stand on one kickstand, then it won’t handle the weight and will fall over.
It is also 15.6-millimeters thick, which is good as Acer’s claim for the device to have 5 hours of battery life does seem impressive. Still, this battery life is most likely achieved through standard use. When streaming or watching videos, or playing games with it, expect that battery life to drop shorter.
The brains behind the Aspire Z3-700 is either an Intel Pentium one a Celeron processor. This depends on where you purchase the device from. This processing power is then mixed with 8GB DDR3 RAM with Intel HD Graphics. There is also internal storage options that you can get upon purchase. This ranges from 32GB SSD to a 500GB HDD.
As for the 17.3-inch display, it has a 1080p IPS panel that will offer detailed, colorful, and really sharp images. When viewing the screen off-center, it still offers above average viewing quality.
In terms of connectivity, the device has 2 USB 3.0 ports, a headphone jack, a microSD card slot, an HDMI port, and a volume rocker on one side. At the other side, there is a holder for the stylus (which is sold separately).
While the Acer Aspire Z3-700 offers a gigantic display, when it comes to specs and features, it does come off as unimpressive. The option of having an insanely large internal storage (in terms of a mobile device) is great, but just about everything else comes off as standard offerings.
