A Busy Mom’s Secret – Her Acer Iconia A1 Tablet

This post contains affiliate links.

Hello mommies and women on-the-go. We all know that Summer is here and the activities are full-force. We are running, jumping, swimming, dancing, cooking, hosting, cleaning, and more! The list goes on and on for women during the summer, especially for mommies. The job of a mother never ends. These school-free months can be the toughest for busy moms! Intel recognizes how challenging it is to be a busy mother and they have a few tips on how moms can combat typical challenges with the help of technology.

A Busy Mom's Secret Part 1

The Acer Iconia A1 is one of the most useful tablets for mommies that are constantly on the run. I have personally tested this tablet and I am super excited about it. I know that choosing the right tablet is difficult because we all have different requirements for a tablet. Also, we want to make sure that the tablet we are choosing is a good deal and will last us a long time. We basically want the best bang for our buck. In the past 6 months I have tried a couple of different tablets that weren’t up to par. Honestly, I had given up on finding a good tablet until I learned about this one. I am so happy to have found one that is just right for me and I have to tell you all about it.

One important aspect I was looking for in a good tablet was the size. My previous tablet was a bit too long. I couldn’t find a good case or accessories for it and it’s odd size made it difficult to travel with. At 7.9 inches, the Acer Iconia A1 seems to the best size for me. It’s large enough to watch movies on and small enough to travel with (comfortably).

I also love the clarity of the screen. At 1024 x 768, I am able to clearly see the details of the games I am playing and movies I am watching. It’s very clear and free of any sort of obstructions. The graphics are smooth, making for a great experience.

The sound is very clear and loud too. The dual speakers make for an enjoyable viewing experience. Whether your child is watching their favorite cartoon movie or you are listening to a song while taking care of the day’s activities, you can expect the sound to be loud without any additional “noise” in the speakers. Being a music major, I am very picky with the sound quality of my devices and this one was quite impressive. 


The rear facing camera isn’t clear and the color is off, so that is the only downfall. Don’t expect to take selfies with the little ones because they will not be very clear. The regular camera is actually pretty impressive for a tablet though. It’s clear and the color is nice.

Another impressive feature of the Acer Iconia A1 is the battery life. I can leave my tablet on for days before it dies! I just love knowing that I can carry this with me on my trips and actually depend on it to last me a full day.

I also have to mention that it runs on Android OS, so you can expect it to be easily accessible. There are a ton of apps that are great for a busy mom, a working woman, a rowdy kid, or even a curious cat (as seen in the photo below haha.) I personally prefer an Android OS above any other one for my tablets. Android offers the best accessibility and the best apps for anyone. A lot of the apps are low priced or completely free.

I personally love this tablet. I am very impressed. I’ve heard great things about Acer tablets, but I just wasn’t sure if it would be up to par with the other “big brands”. As I mentioned before, I’ve had horrible experiences with other tablets. I would have never expected a tablet this good to be this low-priced. I wish I had went with Acer all along.

  1. I like the overall size, looks comfortable to hold, good screen, and appreciate the decent battery life.

  2. My favorite feature of this tablet is the long battery life. I also like how thin it is.

  3. The thing I would like most about this tablet is using it in the morning to get my day on the right track with routines.

  5. I have a Kindle Fire HDx. I love tablets, haven’t seen info on the Acer till now. Android OS and battery life is definitely a plus!

  6. I have an ACER computer. At first it was a learning curve getting use to it, but I have grown to love it. I have tablets, but they are Apple products. Would be cool to own one of these.

  7. Wow, this looks like a great tablet in such a low price. Presently I am using apply iPad but will look into Acer to gift it to my sister.

  14. This is really cool. Love that tablet has such long life would be great plus while travelling. Size matters to me too and it is plus that it fits perfectly, too large makes it difficult to carry along and too small beats the purpose of tablet. I have one that is too large and I avoid taking it while travelling with me. Thanks for hosting the amazing giveaway. Good luck to all.

  15. I’ve had several Acer products in the past and they have always been a decent product. Have never tried one of their tablets but I would definitely like to!

  22. I am really impressed with the batteey life. Most tablets I have seen go down after a movie or two or in a day or two with just light use. I also like the way this tablet looks, the size and how easy it would be to carry.

  23. I like that the battery life on this tablet can go days before it dies.I don’t like having to charge my things throughout the day because they don’t stay charge and i don’t even be on them that much.

  24. Some days I hate taking a big, bulky laptop with me when I travel. I am pleased that the size of this tablet is small, but not too small. The long battery life is also a plus, especially if I am not close to somewhere where it can be easily recharged.

  25. My favorite feature of this tablet is the sound quality! I really love listening to music videos and the sound has to be great for me!
