Thread Details

CVS has this low-end but adequate for many on 50-90% off clearance.
Ask the store clerk to check: Craig Tablet 0741, usually in the Photo area with other "high value" electronics. Could be in the back of the store as well.

Check the bottom of the box and the back of the tablet if the seal's already open that it's the CMP-741e. Photo attached below.


Update: quite a few reported to have paid $25 with 75% off now.
$12.5 anyone? (holding breath...)

Update 2: multiple reports of $10 or 90% off.
Receipt updated. Thanks, zirjacks!

Craig CMP741e running ICS 4.0.3. Has HDMI, and works fine with Youtube and Netflix.
The spec is much better than CMP741d, which seems to be the ridicule in this forum. A good review here,

For sure. My allwinner tablet is nowhere near as responsive as my MacBook Pro.

Thinking of returning it for a faster one. bulb


Seriously, they're all gone in NE IA or I'd pick one up, just so I could PRACTICE rooting and all. Wink Even if they're not as quick as an i7 HP Envy.

Can you be more specific. I believe the Nook Tablet is 512 ram and the Craig is 1Gig

The Nook Table has a dual core Ti OMAP 4430 CPU running at a true 1 GHz and a PowerVR SGX540 GPU. The amount of memory is irrelevant to the comparison, just as loading 2GB of memory onto a piece of junk video card cannot save it. It's ultimately just a marketing point. This is fine for playing around with for the price, but it is not a high quality or high performance tablet.

I have no idea. It's one thing to compare specs and other to assess day to day feel. It depends on what you do with it.

No.

I never had a nook tablet but I did have the nook color. This thing is as fast if not faster than the nook color was. This thing is no slouch.

Nook color is 512MB while Nook tablet is 1GB RAM. Nook color is single core while
Nook tablet is dual-core. And yes memory matter; try running some game like Angry Bird
with 512MB and you will see. CMP741e has Mali400 graphic and it will blows away Nook
punny GPU

LOL, dumb analogy. more memory for anything (CPU, GPU) is ALWAYS better! SGX540
is inferior compared to Mali400 (on CMP471e) So unless Nook tablet comes with DDR5
RAM which would be better than CMP471e DDR3, its not going to beat it.
Even if Nook tablet is $25, i would still pick CMP471e over it.

You're way late. Why are you even bothering? The sale is over.

yep, and if you do find one in a store (even one that has been returned), it will be full price
of $100. CVS jack up all of the xmas clearance back to normal price.
