    I love my eee pad transformer, but so do my kids!
    Can anyone suggest a cheap tablet I can buy for them to use for games and basic apps?

    If they've played with your Transformer, I doubt they'd be happy with anything but a capacitive touch screen. You might want to look into a Barnes & Noble Nook color or the New Kindle Fire. They are less expensive than a full tablet, but still have a lot of functionality while being excellent eReaders. Maybe your kids will even read more ;)

    Leapfrog has a new tablet out. I also heard of a kid's tablet called Innotab. That one is made by Vtech. You can download apps for that also. But it's not an Android.

    How about one of those $99 Craig tablets from Rite-Aid? Dunno if they're any good, but you sure can't beat the price.
