The Acer Iconia Tab 8 has the design edge for budget slates, but you can find a faster performing tablet in the same price range.
At an event in New York, Acer unveiled an 8-inch budget tablet and a 10-inch model geared toward classroom use.
If you're on tightest of budgets, the Acer Iconia One 7 will meet your needs for very casual use, but don't expect more than that.
The Acer Iconia A1-830 is a sleek and simple tablet for basic use, but you need only spend $50 more to upgrade to a slate with faster performance and better features.
The 8-inch Acer Iconia W4 has a few advantages that help it stand out from a crowd of similar devices, including great battery life and enough ports to support basic productivity. It's also much better -- and less expensive -- than last year's W3 model, so it earns bonus points for that.
The competitively priced slate offers minor upgrades to last year's model and comes in red or dark grey.
