Default I have 2 of these tablets ordered

I have two 80 g9s ordered. I will have a review done up after some app loading etc. coming from an apple fan, it should be interesting to see how I like this unit.

Well it's not a Mac, but it has the current tablet OS, Honeycomb (ver 3.2) with a variety of connections available, i.e. SD, USB, HDMI, etc. Archos isn't a big-name brand, but kinda like the underdog. I have the Archos 80G9 along with an Acer Iconia 10.1 and here lately I've been using the Archos more. It has a nice "fit" in your hand, if you understand what I mean. I know you'll be pleased with your purchase.

You're welcome. The 80G9 has full Market, Netflix, Skype and the whole gamut! I was nervous about it having the full Market myself, moving up from a Archos 70 Internet Tablet (7 inch) that had Archo's quasi-Market. That just didn't cut it! So yeah, it has the full Market and everything works out great. Nice thing about the Archos compared to the Iconia is when you hook the 80G9 (and other Archos products, to give them their due) to a PC, it lets you very easily download your MP3 collection. Let me know how it works out. The other thing I am waiting for on both my tablets is ICS. :-)

Yup, I was a little apprehensive about the 80 G9 after some poor reviews but there were some positive reviews too that put things into perspective and now I have one I think for the money it's very good value. It's is much better than saving a little on a pre-Honeycomb tablet.

Oh yeah. something like the zenithink, I like the look of it, and it looks well built but from what I have been reading is that is very unstable and does not have honeycomb.

Im happy with my purchase, plus we are getting ics soon in the new year!
