Junk hardware, junk software. I think i'll stick with my 11" Macbook Air running OS X and Windows 7 with Parallels desktop.

Holy ugly tablet, Batman.
I'm "meh" about Windows 8 tablets. But it appears to me what they're all missing is a keyboard dock with expanded battery.

I do not know why Acer keep insisting making cheap W8 tablet with small storage. It is not that much more expensive to make a 128GB model. The 32Gb model would have very little storage left with Microsoft Office being included. That will leave almost no space for user to install any meaningful application. The microSD slot is too low to run application from.

"Both the 64 GB and 32 GB models are set to go up for pre-order tomorrow, June 4, with the former boasting a competitive $379.99 price tag... Pricing for the 64 GB model was not revealed. "
Pretty sure the former would mean the 64 gig...

I dont see you complaining about most of the Android Tablets have 16/8G only ..

If you want 128G then get an i3/i5 Tablet , the new haswell operate at 7 watts .

I would never pay for an Atom Tablet with high storage for one reason , it is a very slow machine ... and should be very affordable to justify going slow.

"I thought people already showed that you get a less than "snappy" experience with the current gen Atom"
Please check out the Anandtech review which shows that performance is actually pretty damn good.

I'm using Intel's first dual core atom for desktop right now and this tablet will be faster than what I'm using. See this as a replacement for a netbook.....only weak in storage. Yet, I don't see myself getting one as notebooks have been getting cheaper lately.
