  1. A !280 x 800 10 inch screen? No thanks. What I’d like is a reasonably priced 10 inch tablet with a resolution of at least 1600 x 900 and at least 2 GB of RAM. I’m flexible on the SoC, something from the Snapdragon 600 or 800 series would be nice but anything else considered. It has to cost less than $449, which is the price of a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. Can anyone recommend me something?

    1. My kids use a TouchPad running Android. It’s got a 10″ screen with slightly lower resolution, and it looks pretty good still. Yeah, there are better screens out there, but 1280×800 shouldn’t be terrible.

  2. $129 seems reasonable for 1280×800, 16GB Storage, expansion slot, 5MP camera, etc. Better than 1024×600 Samsung and overpriced HP junk.
