The Acer Iconia W3 tablet hasn't really been out for that long. Pre-orders for it began in early June when the base 32GB version of device was offered for $380. Now – about two months after it became official – the same Iconia W3 model can already be bought for just $299, either from the Microsoft Store or from a third-party retailer...

$300 is great with full windows 8. But i want to wait for the successor unit with a better screen and next gen of processor.

my lady loves hers, all she does is surf the net and play FB games. I believe the ppl complaining are the ones wanting BMW quality but buy a Chevy

Heads up!!! Office max has a 20% off coupon that's good for tablets. I was able to pick up a 32gig Nexus 7 2013 for $215 plus tax. Should work on any tablet office max has in store.

Acer had a chance to make history with this device but Blew it by putting a cheap screen on it.
the new 7 inch high def screen "Nexus 7" screen tablet has the type of screen a Windows 8.1 small tablet needs to help windows 8 smaller tablets sell. 2 more Windows 8.1 tablets are due out for sale soon. Microsoft is said to be making an 7.9 inch screen "Mini Surface" to the Public to buy. I hope they learned from Acer's mistakes and puts Samsung high def Nexes 7 screens on their "Mini Surface" and sells it well below 400 dollars. I think people will give a try because internet tech sites Testors report that you can see printed material clearly on a Nexes 7 tablet using the new Samsung mini screens for small tablets
