    People,

    I just read in PC USER mag that they have rated the A500 at 85% - which is equal to and on par with iPad2. This is the highest rating for any tablet. There were a few other tablet makes at the same rating as the A500 but the fact that it was first mentioned in the ratings article suggests that they thought very highly of the A500. Except for a few negative comments about the weight of the A500 they seemed quite pleased.

    frankly, weight is the only factor I am not totally happy with. Oh, the mouse driver...

    Microphone needs work too.

    Weight doesn't bother me too much because I have a case that is also a Stand, so I don't spend a lot of time holding it.
    Before I got the case, hand holding the tablet was a bit tiring on the holding hand, as it was always at an awkward angle.

    I've compared the Acer side by Side with all the major brands, and for versatility it really can't be beat.
    Second best is the Asus Transformer, but it has its drawbacks as well.
