"Those are some nice spec, Dual core chip at 1.5, 250 Gb hard drive, USB ports, HDMI output, 10 or 8 inch screen and under $350. I was in shock until I re read the article, and it states that it a Media Player, so no Android? Still though its a heck of a machine for the price."
"OK, yeah, it runs Android 3.1 HoneyComb , http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20110623006147/en/ARCHOS-Unveils-Fastest-Tablets-G9-Tablet-Range , and it said that "While the competitors’ tablets are priced starting at $499, ARCHOS is offering an 8’’ tablet starting at $279 and 10.1’’ tablet starting $349"- so the base model start at those prices right and not the full fledge ones describe in this article?, I think that Ray Willington should verify that and clear that up. "
I would be a bit afraid of a mechanical hard drive in tablet, all it would take was a little bit of rough handling and the drive would most likely fail. The price point on these particular laptops is very good though.
All that space on the side, they could have put a couple tough sliders for scrolling?
Nice price either way.
I'm guessing the 1 GHz model only has 512 MB, instead of 1 GB, the the 1.5 ones have, but we will see. That's one of the critical pieces of info missing from the website.
