Acer Iconia Tab A100Powerful, compact, easy to carry and even easier to use, the new Acer Iconia Tab A100 is perfect whether you need to work on documents after office hours or simply chill out with your favorite movie or eBook.

I have a laptop, but I find it a little awkward to use when I’m sitting at home at night watching television with my husband. Sometimes we want to look up a review of a movie or figure out where we saw that actress before. A tablet could sit right on the coffee table beside me!

I need a larger "other brain"

From Carol Martzinek on September 15, 2011 :: 11:03 am

I would use it as a larger “other brain” than my current DROID X. I would use it for managing my fundraising efforts on behalf of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, and to go as paperless as possible by using it for as much of my reading material as possible.

I would use this tablet

From Horace on September 15, 2011 :: 11:07 am

I would use this tablet to do the usual things.  You know, check email, surf the web, read informative sites like this one, keep appointments, and play games.  The thing is there so many things to list.  The two main points for me are size of the screen and portability.  As I get older, my eyesight is little weaker and it would help to have the bigger screen.  Thanks for the opportunity.

Can't afford a new laptop so...

From Sher Surratt on September 15, 2011 :: 11:09 am

Wow, this is great! I would use my Acer Iconia Tablet in place of my recently deceased laptop. As it is now, I’m using a very outdated desktop and I can’t download many applications I could really use. I can’t even upgrade to the newest version of my browser because my OS is too old. And of course a desktop is definitely not portable. This giveaway is exactly what I need!

my iphone drives me crazy

From Jan on September 15, 2011 :: 11:12 am

At my age, more than 50 and less than 60, the size of the display and the keypad are a challenge to my eyesight and dexterity.  Recently, one of my kids commented on the huge size of the font for texts. Smart aleck.
An Acer would be a wonderful replacement to the iphone for internet access outside of the home.  Thanks for this opportunity.

What a Cool Compact Tablet!

From Kimberly Kelly-Sydow on September 15, 2011 :: 11:19 am

I would use the Acer Iconia Tab A100 in place of my laptop for checking my email, Facebook , and twitter messages.  I have mobility issues and since it is so lightweight, I would be able to use it anywhere at anytime.  It also helps that I would be able to hide it in my pocket, so that my kids couldn’t “borrow” it from me. That would be a huge help for me.

Staying Connected To My Family

From Bonnie Barton on September 15, 2011 :: 11:38 am

Working on the go is the up and coming way to do business.  Lugging a heavy laptop can be a nuisance.
I travel by car much of the time, and having this would help me find my way, and show me what shops and restaurants are on my route.  It would also keep me in touch with my home base job while working on the road. I would be able to have examples of our product at hand when meeting with customers.

Having an Acer Tablet would also help me stay connected and available to my children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren wherever I go.

How I would an Acer Tablet

From Ed Swift on September 15, 2011 :: 11:41 am

I would like to consoladate much of what I use my laptop and smart phone for onto a tablet. As a senior citizen,a tablet would help as my memory fades and mobility is reduced. My laptop in not as portable as my smartphone, but my smart phone is too too small for comfortable reading of e-books.

From Dan Castro on September 15, 2011 :: 11:52 am

Why do we allow our people to fade from our view when they turn 65? I would like to see each American receive a tab along with their gold watch and a 30 day training in how to use it. I would also like the government to develop programs wherein the o/65 crowd could gain the title of “virtual docent” and lead talks for people around the nation at sites and on points of interest like Washington D.C.
