Take a look at the Archos Fans website http://archosfans.com/

I own a couple of Archos tablets. They are well made and well supported.

Look at the reviews in your link. Note that of the 49 reviews, 22 are 1 star, then think about buying it again.

My partner bought an earlier model. Within a few weeks, of very light use, the charger had to be replaced, then the tablet itself. When it was working it was slow, the resistive touch screen was very unresponsive and the display was dim, dull and had very poor viewing angles. Soon after receiving the replacement tablet, it was up on eBay.

If you must buy one, Amazon will sell you it for under £190 with free postage.

Mr Mistoffelees,Looking at your reply I think you have hit the nail right on its head regarding the reviews.22 given 1star. Would you be in a position to recommend an alternative? many thanks.c.

Sorry, I'm not. Big monitor, a mouse and a full size keyboard are what I like to use. Tablets don't do it for me.
