imo i would take the pc. you already have 1 awesome tabet (n7) and the other one i never heard of... you need something to work on to do root stuff for the n7 and the other one. BUT i would after purchase format the hdd and pop ubuntu on it. even the dumbest of users (by no means am i implying your dumb) can run ubuntu. one thing you DONT WANT is windows 8. if you can get it with win7 then that would be better... duel boot win7 and ubuntu...
