Not a duplicate, just another inquiry.

Yeah, the price has gone up now that I know a little more. I haven't actually seen that HP touchpad for 200. I was thinking of getting that one anyway, but I wanted to check what the best one was in 300-400 price range or does it not really change?

Sorry but I can't do best.

With prices moving faster than usual what is best for the buck moves too fast for me to give any answer.

I would go with the names. Even if the name is Viewsonic.

Thank you Bob.

Any other opinions? I'm really just weighing my options with the little money I have. I want to find out what the best tablets I can find for a higher price and see if it's worth saving more money as opposed to getting something under 200 that may not be as good.

Hmm, that Galaxy, the Xoom as well.

Let me warn you about the lesser tablets. Some don't have multi-touch, the android market, g sensors, etc. If you don't get the basics you may be unhappy.
