I do not understand SMS abbreviations so am unable to use them.
Having been invited to enter, the idea of the Acer A500 appeals to me, my own installation is so
lacking in technology that such a machine would be a fantastic boost.
I am a writer and any gear to assist me will be most welcome.

neb: This is my existing tablet:


(There are a lot of chemicals in the water where I live).

Some people have complained that what I posted was a picture of my cat.  Rubbish!  This:

My cat

is my cat.

(Incidentally, if I do win the tablet then another thing I plan to do with it is use the Arduino water sensor I have to try and analyse what they put in the water around here).

This would replace my mrs. too heavy to move Notebrick with it's around 1 1/2 mins of battery from a full charge.

I'm sure she'd send a cake in gratitude!

Perhaps this tablet would redeem the Acer brand to us after our last Acer Notebook recurrently killed itself.
After seven(yes 7) returns we finally gave up on our 8102 wlmi and mrs ended up with the secondhand old asus pictured above. BTW the asus fusion sticker(off my notebook) is a parody here.

My tablet is getting very old and somewhat heavy. Someone has also written on it. Looking at item 8 I guess it wasn't made by Steve Jobs though!

I can't afford an iPad.....

Clearly this would be hellishly useful for a couch kumara like myself and much easier to use than a laptop, so I want one!!!!!!!!!!Cool

would be stoked to win this, love my gadgets. heres my current wanna be Andriod tablets. Nokia N900 currently dual booting Nitroid Andriod Gingerbread & Maemo and my Acer lappy. Funnily I was suggesting to my boss today we should buy a tablet for work as a presentation device when im on the road selling ski/snowboard clothing & skis it would certainly save me carrying around so many paper catalogs and bring an interactive experience to a sell in.

My Vodafone 845 with its puny 240 x 320 pixels makes it near impossible for me to read the geekzone while on the go.

My current rig is below. A tablet would be ideal for me because I am a uni student, musician, filmmaker and geek, so technology plays an important part in my life and to have such a rig would enhance my ability to perform all of the above as efficiently as I can. Not to mention it would be absolutely mean to win. Lol
