    Is there a big difference between the W500 and W510 processors?

    W500 has C-50 amd 1.0GHz processor
    W510 has Z2760 Clovertrail 1.5GHz Processor

    Would you notice the difference in these processors when using the tablet?

    Well... from a benchmark point of view, the atom in the 510 will be faster. However the graphicspart on the w500 will be faster.
    So what this translates to, not really sure.

    But i think you should also take in account the batterylife. On the w500 its not really spectacular. Mine will last for about 4/5 hours use, the w510 should do 8. Oh, and there's the sensors (or lack of) thing on the w500. And the productsupport...

    bottomline, i'd go with the w510 if i were you.

    Hope this helps...

    Well, if you're into stats, the W500 has the AMD C-60 cpu, the W510 has the new intel Atom Z2760 (clovertrail)

    Passmark CPU
    Intel Atom Z2760 @ 1.80GHz : 679
    vs
    AMD C-60 APU : 523

    Video Passmark G3D
    Radeon HD 6290M (c-60 apu): 194
    vs
    PowerVR SGX 545 : ?

    Can't really find good data on the graphics capability of the Atom Z2760, but here's some realworld data:

    This is a screenshot from a samsung ativ (also has atom z2760):

    This is from my own W500:

    (don't mind the diskperformance of the W500, i updated to a crucial m4 120 ssd)

    Realworld performance? Don't know!

    Hope this helps

    No, not really, maybe it will be noticeble with some gameplay.
    Also, windows 8 makes good use of graphics hardware acceleration, so maybe the W500 wins here.
    Overall, it probably won't be much difference
