I've come across some weird specs in my tablet hunting over the last few weeks, like they snapped up overstock components and just stuck them together.Coby does make some better tablets, but they are priced so close to the competition it's not worth it.

I'm going to miss the fun too. I finally broke down and ordered a refurb Acer yesterday, but the deals will be over by the time it gets here.
