Is $349.99 the best price for the Acer Iconia Tab A500?
No, not really.
Online I know that it is possible for you to get a refurbished/used Acer Iconia Tab A500 for as little as $299, but the tablet you get is pre-owned. If you want a new model most reputable online retailers are only going as low as $349.99 for the Acer Iconia Tab A500 16GB Wi-Fi only tablet (model: A500-10S16U).
However if you only want to pay $349.99 and have the tablet shipped to your U.S. address for free Amazon.com is your retailer (assuming there is no online sales tax in your state), through Best Buy you’ll pay for the tablet to be shipped and there are mandatory tax charges to remember too.
