What have you found so far at 50 to 100?
Maybe some cheep tablet but you have likely read the issues with those.
We have kids, and I'd like to be able to rip their favorite DVD's and other programs to a portable device so we don't have to worry about losing the DVD's when they want to watch something in the car or when visiting my parents or in-laws. I know I can get a laptop, but I don't want that kind of bulkiness, especially in the car. I know I can get an iPod/iPhone, but they are insanely expensive for the amount of storage they provide, and I'm really not looking for something with an integrated screen. Is there a sub-$100 device (and preferably les than $50) that has enough storage for 5 or 6 feature-length movies, and that I can output to HDMI as well as the old-fashioned RCA-style video jacks?
