I saw a tablet pc with 32GB hard drive. About $170, I wanna buy one, but do you think is it worth to buy??

The specification:

CPU: VC882 ARM Cortex A8 800MHz
OS: Google Android 2.3
RAM: 512M DDR3
Flash Memory: 32GB
Support TF card extend 16GB max
Display: 10.1 inch TFT LCD resistive touch panel 1024*600
Camera: 0.3 Mega Pixel
Battery: 5000mAh
Networking: Wifi 8188 b/g/n

A good one? I mean at this price.

You can get a bit better for about the same to a little more. I'd look for a 1 gig or above processor and android 3 if you can. 512 meg for sure.

You might look at the Le Pan, you can see it at Amazon.com. You might just search amazon for tablet computers. Figure out which size you want for sure.

7 is kind of the normal one but the 10s are nicer size though a little heavier.

The one you list is kind of poor on the camera as well as the processor though not a bad buy. You might do a little better than that if you look around.

The resistive touch screen is the main weakness. You really should look for a device with a capacitive touch screen - they are much, much better. As with most things, though, you get what you pay for.

Bleh at the resistive touch screen. The rest of the specs don't sound TOO bad, but that touch screen really kills it for me.

You could go for the Kindle Fire or the Kobo Vox, they both have better screen.

That sounds like a $100 tablet, not a $170 one.

I think the price is more because it has a bigger screen.
