Check out the gallery below for tons of shots of Acer's 10.1-inch Iconia W510 x86 Windows 8 tablet with keyboard dock.
It's clear that touch and ultra thin form factor x86 are going to be two major themes of this year's Computex, and on a larger scale two major themes of Microsoft's battle against Apple later this year. It's very telling that Acer isn't showing off any ARM based Windows 8 tablets at the show. Full x86 compatibility is going to be a big feature for dockable Windows 8 tablets as an iPad alternative.

Bring on the competition.

And I'm surprised that the x86 tablet is so thin!

mepenete - Monday, June 4, 2012 - linkGrow up. Its only in one picture and it isn't even that big of a deal. Feel free to troll on engadget instea
ueharaf - Monday, June 4, 2012 - linkIs the screen a matte display (anti-glare) ????
DanNeely - Sunday, June 10, 2012 - linkLook at picture 9 and, the light reflecting off it is mottled not continuous. It's got some sort of anti-glare filter.
Assuming it's 1366x768 I think I've finally found a replacement for my aging 768p netbook. 1024x600's not supported by w8; and if it was 900/1080p I suspect that marketing would've advertised the fact like they did for the 11.6" model.
