top tablet

Got mine a couple of days ago and its magic. If you'd like to be spoon-fed then maybe its worth another £200 for an ipad. If you know what you're doing and you're an Android fan the Archos awesome. USB connx is v handy, upgradeable storage, media player handles every format imaginable, etc etc.

Very Good

Bought this about two weeks ago. Very happy with the display and touch capability. Plugged in various usb accessories without problem. Easy to use (especially as I have an android phone). Battery life good. Only had to restart the machine twice due to crashing and then it only takes a little while to reboot. Watch out for flash compatability though. Although support within Android it is not currently supported by Archos (although there are plenty of work arounds that work).
