The Galaxy Tab S6 is the "sweet spot" device ACER should be making.

Samsung is the ONLY tech company that is slowly getting it. For so many tasks (and people), Android IS the better choice to ChomeOS (despite ChromeOS clumsily supporting Android apps). The touch/track pad is a very necessary thing and its absence has always been a dealbeaker to me. ARM is also very key to allowing it to behave more like an overgrown mobile phone that happens to do laptop tasks when called upon to do so. Now, someone ELSE (Acer, Asus, HP) just needs to make a $400 version of Samsung's design, ideally with the darn headphone jack in place! Imagine that you feel sorry for your grandmother who is pecking away at her small device and wish to buy her a comfortable laptop (one with a touch/track pad). Do you buy her a windows machine? NO WAY ON EARTH. She will always need support and it will always need to be plugged into the wall. What about a ChromeBook? NO SIREEE. ChromeOS works differently than any other device she has ever used and it has DUPLICATE apps just waiting to confuse the heck out of her. An iPad? Sure, if you are rich and don't mind being seeing your Grandma sucked into the Apple screwniverse. Also, iPads have no pointer or trackpad support. Right now, the only two options for people like me who want an android laptop are either 1. Paying Samsung a king's ransom for this device, or 2. giving $100-150 to "RCA" and getting a VERY junky machine that barely performs. ACER is missing a huge opportunity to make a $300-$400 sweet-spot laptop for the masses!
