Viewsonic Viewpad 10pi Windows 7 Tablet - $299
Viewsonic Viewpad 10pi Windows 7 Ready Tablet - $149
Viewsonic must be blowing these out, because the cheapest price I could find for the $299 version with Windows 7 pre-installed is $499.99 on Amazon:
I was able to buy that $39.99 Windows 8 upgrade special from Microsoft before it expired yesterday and was thinking about using that to do a clean install on the $149 version of this Viewsonic 10pi. That would give me a Windows 8 tablet for under $200.
What do you think? Does anyone know of a better deal out there on a Windows tablet?
"While the ViewPad 10pi attempts to be the jack of all trades, in reality it's just one big headache."

I just downloaded the G Tablet.zip on my PC. Unzip the contents and placed the folder in a USB stick. Install the APK's in the order specified in the link. Ran GMAIL to specify my account, then ran the Market. Angry birds does install and runs fine. (rianman
