I already have an acer tab a500 which has made me very sad....its broke and out of warranty because I bought it refurbished. The cost to fix it is almost as much as i paid for the thing in the first place. I've bought other items refurbished that are still running strong with no issues, so the fact that it was refurbished is not upsetting to me. I should have bought the extended warranty that was offered when I purchased......oh... well.... Anyway, I am looking to purchase another tablet but don't think i want another tab 500 (not sure yet). All I do know,without a doubt, is that I want another tablet that has already received the updates for ICS or comes with it out the box. I will be buying a brand new one this time. I just need some help. ICS is the only requirement I'm insistent on. With all the suggestions i receive, I will be comparing specs and going to my local electronics store to physically touch the ones i like the best. And i WILL be buying the extended warranty this time around! thanks for the help!!!
