    The W500 and a500 are complete different hardware. the a500 has a tegra processor that cant run windows 7. There is some tack that windows 8 will run on mobile chips, but i doubt that it will run well.

    Hi, welcome to Android Tablets. The folks in the Acer Tablets forum should be able to discuss this with you, so I'm moving your thread over there for you.

    AHA! I got it to work, Acer W500 running both windows7 and Android 4.0.3. - the best of both worlds. There are a few issues, but I think most of these issues will/can be resolved once the video card conflict is resolved. Here's a quick list of issues: video flickers from time to time, camera force closes, many high quality graphics applications and games do not open, and the screen becomes unreadable after the unit wakes up from sleep. Besides these, the android is working great: the wifi is stable, multi-touch screen is very responsive (upto 4 points), sound, and multi-tasking.
