    • Wi-Fi only with 802.11b/g/n
    • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR connectivity

    Every Acer product I've ever owned has completely failed on me within 2 years. I'm not going near this thing.

    yeah, to think the A510 also had Tegra 3 minus the HD screen. Wouldn't that slow the A700's performance if they didn't improve other specs?
