I have a desktop with a Sandybridge i5-2500 cpu, 8 gb G.Skill ram, 2 x 1TB hdd's, HD6870 video card in a Lan Li aluminium case with USB 3 equipped ASUS P8P67 LE mb with a LG E2250 monitor.  Built for me to my specs in Jan 2011.  I love it - when I can get to it!!

I have an ipod 4 which I use a lot on our home wireless network when I can't use MY pc becasue someone else is!  This tablet would make that experience so much more pleasurable because whilst the ipod is great, its screen is REALLY small for web browsing!

I would like the Acer tablet to try out OSM maps and navigation. I'm now using a Garmin Zumo 660:

I would love the Acer tablet so I cab communicate with my daughters - three of them are living in Asutralia.  I have a HP notebook that I use at work and on the road, but would love a table for home.

I have a Palm IIIXE and I'm pretty sure that it can't be upgraded to run Android.  This Acer Iconia looks like just the kind of thing I need to move into this millennium.  Cool

having something like the ACER ICONIA A500 would to me be like having a Rolls Royce, as all phones that i have ever owned have been cheap nasty one with just the basics, i have a new phone at the moment that was another cheap model but its my first with a camera, great.

Been away too long.  Forgot password, had to get new one, read and agree to the rules.  Wonder if I'm still on Page 28?  I'm probably so out of the loop I won't know how to use it!  But I'm in.

I spend time travelling to Auckland and Christchurch (from Wellington) with work so this would give me a good chance to video call back to the kids....   and the wifey!!

I don't have any tablet, but I had a play with one of these today in Warehouse Stationary (of all places).  I think I'd marry one of these if I had one, very impressive.  We'd like one so we don't have to get our ageing laptops out all the time.
