Summary: It's functional enough, but the balance is horrible! I needed a laptop for school, so my dad passed this along to me. He got it for free, because his coworkers hated these, so no one at the office ever used them. I can see why.
Excerpt: I’m not really a fan of using tablets for my business. But, as time progresses, I realized I needed a full upgrade and go portable with nearly everything that I do. That’s when I decided to go and buy Acer Iconia Tab. Acer isn’t really my top notch hardware …
Summary: This tablet was ACER's attempt to introduce a product to market but it wassn't well thought out. Tablets don't have the processing horsepower to run Windows 7 and the hard drive is a 16GB chip. Way too small. OK for email but that's about all.
Summary: 10/18/2012: acer w500p touch screeen with docking keyboard, c-60AMD which includes the turbo boost to 1.3ghz, and the upgraded graphics chips, windows 7 os, 32gb hard drive, 2gb ram, bought this extremely cheap at a thrift store thinking for that little money i'll try it out.
Summary: It is somewhat inaccurate to compare with a tablet or laptop - this one has both. It is indeed a full fledge computer with a side order of "tablet". Of course, we all reserve the right of playing with many different toys! I have. One thing I like about tablets is the "app player" function.
Summary: I love this tablet. You have to enable the on-screen mouse to be able to get fine control. I have installed the Windows 8 preview, and seems to work better than Win 7. I do miss that on-screen mouse sometimes. I also installed a 128 GB SSHD, following instructions that I found online.
Summary: I bought this tablet a year ago. It didn't have enough memory to be practical for business use. After reading reviews, I changed the 32Gb for 128 ssd, added 128Gb sd card and installed windows 8 customer preview. I absolutely love it now.
Summary: Cheap looking,very thick, and heavy. I like it. It has a few glitches now and then especially in handling Quicktime video. The keyboard works great, but becareful, you cannot just sit it in your lap. It is very top heavy and will fall over easy.
