Let's compare this to the Nexus lowest amount of RAM and flash memory. The Nexus weighs in with 1GB RAM and 16GB flash. There is no hard drive in these things.
You seem to be looking at something cheap and maybe it's the right move as you won't feel burned.
I read that tablets are throwaway devices, that they only last about 2 years and then there's an upgrade. I'm looking to buy a name tablet for $109....512RAM and 8Gb of HD space.
Would it obsolete the minute I leave the store?
