I use the A500 for reading magazines, news "papers", general surfing and as a lyrics "book". As a performer, I always carried around various heavy lyrics books for live performances. Now, using Jota Text and Android Teleprompter, lyrics to 300+ songs are at my finger tips. I set a scroll rate for each song and then upload a set at a time and get down to some pickin' & grinnin'. The books stay in the car, just in case the tab takes a dump.
I don't ever use the laptop any more, but the tab hasn't replaced my desktop. It doesn't have the nads to handle multi-track audio recording yet, but one day soon, I'm sure.

I use my tablet more than my computer. Check email, read news, etc.

A500 users, what kind of things do you do with your tablet? I almost bought one but ordered a Sony S instead. My wife has the 7" Acer and likes it a lot but everything is foreign to her.
As an educator for special populations, the tablet serves as an easy device to read books, comics, lesson activities for the visually
impaired. You can make the text larger for ease of reading or identifying objects. There is also the "cause and effect" aspect of
lessons presented on the tablet, i.e., identify the square by touching it, and it "bounces' if identified correctly.
As a college student, I can download my textbooks (if available) instead of purchasing that $110 book then lug it around campus
in my backpack. The tablet provides mobility. I can also record professor's lectures, highlight what I need, and download it to my
laptop where I can print it up. Yet, I'm still learning how to use much of it. Haven't quite tapped into my Asus Transformer total
Reading, light surfing, email (with Kaiten Mail and TouchDown), spreadsheets: time sheet, stock inventory, inventory counting, pricing, vehicle history (one is a bit over 1mb in size with 40 sheets), light writing (DTG) and a few other tasks. I lug it around in a $10 Walmart back pack. I also have a Blueteeth mouse & keyboard.
