Someone being not tech saavy, means you will have to pick up the slack when she is wondering what is going on... I would consider holding off until the price of these tablets come down some... That tablet that you were looking at has 2 major downfalls in my eyes...

#1 - 800MHz processor (Netsgo) vs 1.2GHz processor (Herotab)
#2 - 256MB DDR2 RAM (Netsgo) vs 512MB DDR2 RAM (Herotab)

These 2 things mean major differences in speed of the tablet... Spending close to $200 on your Netsgo and then your girlfriend getting upset that it is too slow could be a huge waste of your money... Might be something you wanna consider. Just food for thought.

As well as, I couldn't find any information on what version of Android OS is running on the tablet... I don't believe in buying anything under the 2.2 due to the fact that Flash 10.1 isn't by default installed. If your girl does stuff online that requires the flash player, be careful... I did see Flash Lite was installed, but it's not quite the same thing, it's limited compared to version 10.1
