MacMall's eBay store has slashed $70 from the A500's price tag

It's been a while since we've post a daily deals thread on DailyTech, but this one is almost too go to let slip by. Judging by the feedback from our various tablet-centric articles on this site, many readers appeared to be enamored with Honeycomb-based tablets.

The Eee Pad Transformer hit a new "low" with an MSRP of $399 for the 16GB model. Today, MacMall is offering the Acer Iconia Tab A500 for $379 with free shipping through its eBay store. For those keeping score, the tablet has a regular MSRP of $449. 

However, keep in mind the Iconia Tab A500 weighs in at 1.7 pounds which makes it 0.4 pounds heavier than the iPad 2 and 0.3 pounds heavier than the aforementioned Eee Pad Transformer. The Iconia Tab A500 is also larger dimensionally than the lackluster Motorola Xoom

For full specs on the Iconia Tab A500, check out this page.

Thanks for your comperehensive and detailed review about this pad. It really helped me making a decision on purchasing one.

/sarcasm

Seriously, ass, way to be a jerk and waste our time. Was that really all you could tell us about it? Build quality isn't everything, for something so cheap, a RATIONAL person might not expect it to be some Appled up one-piece pretty boy kit.

Ass? Jerk? Rightttttttt. I just said I wasn't impressed with build quality. And that's your problem if "my" post "wasted" your time. I was making my opinion known considering I had one but I apologize for wasting your sweet precious time

How long could it actually take you to read one sentence?

Maybe he's a slow reader...

But it definitely took much longer to read his much more pointless brag. Figure that out...

Also, I paid 459, which is the normal price, and that is not cheap in anyway, maybe it is to you since it's not Apple.
