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.
Summary: I wanted to share my Acer experience for those thinking about buying Acer. My son saved for over a year for his tablet. He bought the Acer Iconia A500. He did not get to use it though until he received the protective screen cover and case. We immediately found a problem with the unit. It had an incredibly short cord and so the tablet could only be charged on the floor or if we dragged a chair over, on the chair.
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. ive always used 14-15 inch systems otherwise. i really like this 10.1 inch unit, using it right now.
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. With Windows 8, this slate has it too. The app variety is small compared with Android, and infantile compared with iThings, but it is growing and so far quality is trumping quantity.
Summary: This is definitely a perfect first time tablet. I was very excited to get this tablet but after using it for a little while...it's whatever. It's like the Nintendo Wii when it first came out....everyone used it for a week...and now it hasn't been touched for a long time.
Pros: LONG Battery Life, Touch Screen is OK, Docking Station is OK
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: Pros: Great value, does what is says, more mobile than laptop, longer battery life than laptop, more options for productivity. Cons: Heavy Bought this for my Wife for travel but I use it as well. Love the USB/Wireless/Bluetooth/HDMI connectivity. Increased memory/disk space by adding 32G SD card. This is not an IPad or IPad killer, but does pretty much what an IPad can do plus more.
Summary: Several people have great detailed information about this tablet but I did want to mention solid state drives should not be defragged so it would be advisable to turn this auto feature off in windows.
Stunning delivery speed and just the product i expected!!!

Summary: Two days ago i ordered this my first product from Amazon.com, and i have already found a seller i would order from again!!!! I ordered it and the next day it was at my door, simply amazing speed. I bought a used model and the only thing i didnt like was that there were 2 dead pixcels on the middle right and lower left on the screen but that happens with new products so ill leave it as thats how it left the factory.
