Summary: I love this tablet. It is like having a computer but faster than that even in a tablet. Talk about multi tasking and impressive during meetings when I need to show a presentation. I think this little puppy even got me promoted.
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. The tablet has nice features (the hardware) and an upgrade to Windows 8 made it more functional. Win 8 runs easier on the tablet. Overall, Hold out for ACER's W7 tablet.
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: OK, first off, this tablet is superb. For what it is, it's extremely capable. The CPU, while very low power, can manage every day tasks without breaking a sweat. And unlike most other AMD processors, it seems to run rather cool. The unit will get warm, but but the fan isn't running all the time (core temps are around 60*C...toasty but acceptable...). Also being an APU with Radeon HD 6290 graphics, it's pretty capable. Most any online videos play fine on it.
Poor tablet and poor quasi laptop make for a pretty poor device.

Summary: I consider myself very forgiving and not picky in the least when it comes to product reviews... however, this product is pretty poor unless you strictly want to browse the web and can deal with the many flaws of Windows 7 tablet experience. Windows 8 is better, but still has many flaws. Pros - Has versatility as it functions as a tablet and a quasi-laptop. Cons - Under-powered as both a tablet and a laptop.
Summary: The City i work with purchased this from Best Buy (who we have a tax free partnership with). I have been using it for field inspections of pavement using MicroPaver Field Inspector Software (which has to be run on a window OS). I only use it for this and i kept the windows 7 instead of using the windows 8 Preview download. It is working great and fast for me. I do use it in the sun and haven't been too bothered by glare.
