Not as good as nexus 7 and a far cry from the iPad mini retina. Don't even mention the first gen iPad mini as ita obsolete crap running 3 year old CPU for a crazy price

Real iPad mini contenders on the android space are nexus 7 , G Pad gpe , tabpro 8.4

The CPU was released 2013 Q2.
Though it is crap, roughly as good as Snapdragon S4 Plus/400 and A6.

I think this device was never meant to be an iPad mini challenger. It's in a class of its own too, offering that package at that price

Even it has good specs, it looks like a fake iPad mini, if you have that people will laugh to you.

Really nice device & ad by Acer! I see they are putting so much effort into this particular device... I love their new Acer animation at the end.. Somehow it kinda mimics Intel.. Hehe. I've tried their first gen A1 tablet & it is not bad at all for the price! Now with an Intel processor, much better design & overall better quality, Im sure this tablet would be a hit in the budget segment!
