  6. vicky says

    why is a manual NOT included when you purchase a tablet? I think its just stupid that you don’t get a manual….heck, some people don’t even know how to turn it on.

  7. Gary (Bo) Crowley says

    I must agree with many of the previous complaints- I feel very strongly that instructions
    should have been provided with my Acer 501.
    Who ever made the decision not to provide some basic operating instructions with my new Tablet definitely did not have the user’s satisfaction in mind. I have been working with my friends, with a great deal of experience, on how to access this units operation guide for three weeks to no avail. Yeah, thanks for nothing. Bo
