"Excellent if you can pick it up for around $300"4.0 starson by MDubb1387
Pros: Hefty, excellent battery life, decent speed, decent storage, expandable via microSD, hdmi micro output, easy to use.
Cons: Battery life drags with wifi and sleep, has frozen 3 times in 6 months, speakers are very weak, listed as being pre-loaded with awesome apps but lots are bloatware, some lenovo additions to honeycomb are not that useful
Summary: I find this tablet to be an excellent example of an antiPad. My fiancee wanted to get me a tablet for Christmas 2011, but she knows I like the maximum available features when it comes to any tech. She said if I really wanted an iPad, I had to shell out half, so I decided to look at android based tablets because I like the operating system. Just after Thanksgiving 2011, this tablet dropped to $299 at a lot of online retailers, newegg, amazon, and a few others I've never heard of before. It sold out at all those and I decided to risk one of the no-name sites. After it was ordered, a friend told me it was actually same price brick and mortar at Office Depot. I checked out the tablet, and it was awesome. I use it all the time. The fact that you have access to google playstore, amazon app store as well as lenovo's own market really expands what you can do when compared to an iPad.
Bottom line, if you are going to buy an iPad for $500-700 dollars, go get a laptop. If you like the feel and use of a tablet, go android. It's a much better value.
