    Acer v Asus v Toshiba

    Not sure what forum to put this in.

    Broke the screen on my Toshiba Thrive.
    I am one of the most techiest people I know and rarely if ever ask for advice. But I would really love to get your thoughts on the three tablets I am considering to replace my Thrive.

    Trying to keep it under $400. These are all competitive with each other.

    Acer Iconia A510
    Asus XFormer TF300t
    Toshiba Excite 10

    I WAS leaning towards the Toshiba as I had a great experience with the Thrive, and it is spec'ed pretty well. BUT Toshiba is mum on a JB update where the other 2 have it already.
    Found the other 2 slightly cheaper then the Excite, as well.
    No way I pay this much more for an Excite.

    A510, $329
    TF300 $339
    Excite $379

    I have the Thrive and love it but my sister and brother got the Acer 210 when it was on 1saleaday. I am almost jealous. The display is much brighter, crisper, clearer than my thrive. The specs are very similar. I can imagine the 510 is even better.

    I know when I was looking at the Thrive last year, the Iconia and transformer were also on my watch list as equal possibilities. The only reason I went with the Thrive is my choice was based on whichever of the three I could get less than $300 and the Thrive was the first to win that competition.

    Our those tablets, the Asus is the one I would choose. I personally avoid Acer like the plague as my luck with them hasn't been great and any other computers I deal with from that company.

    If you want a great tablet under $400 would you consider the Nexus 7? The Nexus 10 starts off at $399, a few dollars over your budget, but I heard very good things about that as well.

    No you don't need a data plan.

    Not a big fan of Acer either but the Icnoia actually gets great reviews. I'd never consider another Acer product after I had a bad experience myself.

    No I will not consider any Nexus device. First off I want a 9 or 10. Second I will not buy a tablet without a memory card slot. I would LOVE a Nexus but I will not support them since they dumped memory cards.
    I like to speak with my dollars. Sure a 32GB tablet is noce, but a 32gb + 32gb = 64 gb is even nicer...

    Fair enough was just wondering if that was an option. I use to think I needed that much memory but for me that wasn't the case.

    Good luck deciding! Never got my hands on the Toshiba but the Asus is very nice as well.

    Only for the data version.

    The Excite takes a 128gb! 160GB tablet? Insane.
    No JB though. I don't have to have the latest and greatest, but I want to at least start with JB.
    Boss has the Asus and the dock so no stranger to that.

    If you do get her one I'm sure she'll love it. How is she with technology? My parents if I get them one, it'd be the best cupholder they'll ever have
