    I recently sold my Eee PC Netbook and would like replace it with a tablet. Now I could really care less about the whole GPS/Accelerometer and all that stuff since I dont play games. I just want something to surf the net, watch youtube, view photos and email, just simple stuff. Waiting for a Galaxy Tab (that will be overpriced for stuff I dont need) is not my plan. My netbook didnt have anything fancy so what would you all recommend? WiFi is a must obviously!

    I currently own 2 of the ZT-180 and these do require you to be a bit of a tinkerer, but for the money a good buy for light basic use. I have 1 of the Archos 101 on pre-order which I expect these to be more usable straight out of the box based on a long Archos history making similar devices. And I will likely order 1 of the Tegra2 in near future... Plus I still have 2 original Moto Droid's overclocked to 1.2Ghz and running 2.2, so it's really nice to see the reasonable priced choices expanding...
