    The iconia510 has its USB port is at the bottom. When I want to link to my USB, I cannot put it horizontal. When I m charging, I cannot put it horizontal. I wonder how the port get approve to b at the bottom?

    Anyone has a problem to view it horizontal?

    Good question that only Acer can answer. I do know that the reason the right gets hot is due to the big battery design and location forces all the heat to be piped to the bottom right corner area. Displacing better would have meant a thicker tablet.

    Some games have only one orientation, the default landscape. Hard to plug in a USB controller.

    Yes. I view my A510 at 180 degrees if I want horizontal with charger coming out the top.

    I found even doing the 180 was awkward and an issue with cases. Makes far more ergonomic sense for the USB to be on a side.

    To each his own but the placement of the charging port (mini USb) is not an issue for me since I have not had the need to charge the tablet while using it. I am getting a full days worth of use before needing a charge.

    The issue for me is mainly using with USB hard drives. Even upside down is awkward.

    Silly placement and defeats the value of the full USB function.
