I had bad luck with tablets so I am not buying them anymore. I bought two tablets the past year. They both broke within 3 months. They are too delicate, drop them once they're toast, get them damp, they will blow out. I have two laptops, both are about 5 years old and (other than battery replacement) have ran without any failures.
For the same price, you can get a laptop with a nice dual or quad core processor, 17 inch screen, with a heck of a lot more memory, hard drive space, and something that can view video streams, run flash, and listen to almost any audio format with no hiccups. Android is not windows. They might be good for phones, but not good for writing research papers, creating spread sheets, or presentations.
I bought my tablets so my kids can play Android games, so they aren't constantly stealing my cell phone. There aren't that many dangerous viruses yet on Android, at least none that I know of. But tablets themselves are not kid friendly and they can't take a beating. I never bought this one on Woot, so maybe this one is better built.
