    Hey boys and girls, check out the latest Android/Chromebook tablet by Acer, with surprises galore:

    9.7" WQHD IPS
    Siloed pen with Wacom EMR
    4GB RAM
    $329!!!

    If it only weren't for the company's recent trend towards selling vaporware, this would be pretty cool. Essentially, a Samsung Tab 3 for half the price!

    It is pretty cool to see this device, but a bit strange too...?

    Performance wise the Tab S3 Snapdragon 802 is faster that the OP1 (that is used in the Samsung Chromebook Plus).
    Frankly the Tab S3 seems better in every way, except the lack of a pen silo.

    The Acer might be better than the Tab A 10.1 2016 w S-pen? I wonder if the the Acer pen has a side button as the Chromebook Plus does not?

    Good points, but the price is only $325 (isn't the S3 more like $699?), that plus a good screen (perhaps) is what makes this look interesting. The OP1 in the CB+ is plenty snappy for chromeos/Android.

    Good catches - both the price drop on theS3 and the other thread. Let's say we make the other one prime on this and shut this one down, ya think? Mods?
