Wanting a Good Internet Tablet/Convertible/Netbook
Name says it all. I have a decent entry-level laptop right now but its a 15.6 incher and i only really use it for internet and watching vids. So, lets get everyones suggestions for a good Internet Tablet.
Some features I'd "Like":
- Decent touchscreen
- At least 5-6'', No larger than 9'' for a tablet, or 13-14'' for a netbook/convertible
- Good battery life (At least 4-5hrs w/ wifi & some useage)
- Good or better quality
- Windows or Maybe Linux - based. not a cellphone OS.
Things I'm flexible on:
- Any CPU/GPU/Whatever combo.
- Wifi g or n
- Touchscreen type
Wishlist: (By no means required, but who wouldn't want it? lol)
- Light gaming/legacy gaming?
- LED backlit display?
Make suggestions guys and help me out... I'm just starting to get into the research for this stuff.
New ideas: AMD Fusion or Nvidia Tegra2? Seems like all the Tegra2 tablets that have been announced thus far will only be running android.
Edit: I've update the above as to cause less confusion.
Option: Archos 9 Windows 7-based tablet:
Looks like a nice option, but I'm not certain about anything yet, lol
Their Android-based tablets look really nice too. Hmmmm
Yeah... don't trust kijiji EVER. Apparently there's a 10-inch "Windows" tablet out thats like amazing and sells for only 250.... sigh
Whats your budget?
Nice replies Charlie, thanks. But those seems on the large side, no? An 11-inch tablet isnt exactly what i'd call portable. I'd rather not have to buy the giant one-pocket pants that Ipad users have, lol.
still though, nice finds - theyre options to consider. But I was really hoping for somethin a lil more portable. I'd like to be able to keep it with me so i can A) watch vids when I want and B) post here more often :haha:
Its just really possible to post alot from my phone....
Update: I'd definitely like something 10'' or smaller, after thinking about it more.
Windows is a big preference, since the Android-based tablets look like enlarged phones, I dont need that. :haha:
Awesome, posting again without responses, great.
The resistive touchscreen on the Archos 9 along with non-upgradeable ram is a deal breaker i think...
Dell streak 7'' looks nice, but still very new and not many reviews yet.
I'd love to get some extra opinions or suggestions everyone... :blarg:
