Okay, I was a little leery at first, having had problems with acer laptops in the past, but the new (NOT refurbished) acer a-100 tablets were on clearance at my local Walmart for $200 so I took a chance and got this instead of an ipad, to replace my Blackberry Playbook. This tablet is fantastic. It's small enough to carry in a purse, and slim enough that it can comfortably be held one-handed for an extended period of time. The rear camera is exceptionally good for a 5 mp, and it has an LED flash, a bonus I didn't expect. Also, the camera feature includes a number of filters and editing options built in, as well as video and panorama mode. As for apps, if you can imagine it, its probably out there. The nook app in particular is something I use a great deal, and it has all kinds of handy options- you can change font, page color, text size, margins, etc. Another wonderful thing is the built in email app, which blows apple's mail app out of the water. You can add in multiple email accounts and see both combined and separate views. Also, if you are so inclined, you can just use the on board planner application, which combines notes, a calendar, email, and news headlines. The notepad portion is great for grocery lists- and since this tablet is easily portable, you can easily take it with you. In short, for the price, this is a fantastic buy.
