The simple slate's $129 starting price attempts to make up for its basic offerings.

Meet the Acer B1-720

This Acer tablet is a slight upgrade from last year's B1-A71, featuring a slimmer build, textured back, and faster components.

Grippy back

The 7-inch tablet features a soft and grippy back. It's light and comfortable to hold, though it feels a little plasticky and cheap.

Minimal ports

To meet the B1-720's budget price, Acer had to cut a few cornerd and, in this case, ports. The slate only packs a Micro-USB port.

Slimmer than before

The budget tablet features One Glass Solution technology, which contributes to its a thinner design.

Don't forget about microSD

The microSD card expansion slot is an often overlooked and taken for granted feature, but thankfully Acer did put one in the B1-720.
