If you want a 7 inch the new Google Nexus can't be beat for price and function, if you want 10 inch try either the original Transformer (here's a refurbished for $265) or the tf300- more money but better specs. I have both the Nexus and the tf101 - both are great for reading PDF and offer endless sources of amusement too.
