5.0 out of 5 stars Archos G10 101XS Tablet, 21 Feb. 2013
By 
This review is from: Archos G10 Gen10 101 XS Turbo 10.1 inch Tablet PC (ARM Cortex A9 1.5GHz Processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB Storage, WiFi, BT, Webcam, Android 4) (Personal Computers)
I had pondered between purchasing a new laptop or a tablet for quite some time. My old Dell laptop's screen would no longer stay up, battery would hold no charge etc.

I decided to try a laptop once more as I thought that this might be the best way to go. Well, I was totally wrong. Windows 8 killed it for me. I had to return the laptop as it was just so frustrating to use. I love my Android based smart phone. It does everything I want and wish for. It's super fast, no waiting around for stuff to load etc. So, after lots of further research I decided to go for the Archos G10 101XS tablet. I had considered Samsung tablets seriously, but having a keyboard cover on the Archos swung it for me.

Now, I like to do some Android experimental programming in my spare time. The Archos has everything I need. A great built in GPS that picks up my position indoors, an accurate electronic compass, good accelerometer sensors etc. It is the perfect tablet for me. The magnetic cover keyboard is great when you need it.

You have sockets for HDMI, USB etc. With Samsung, you have to get special adapters which cost a bit.

Upgrading to Jellybean 4.1 was a doddle as Archos automatically do this if you so wish. The magnetic keyboard cover is a great idea. Protects the screen and the keyboard works well.

The only downside for me is the mono speaker. It would have been nice to have stereo, but it's not a big deal. I tend to use headphones most of the time.

I really like the Archos music player software included. Best I have seen yet. Oh, and having the latest Bluetooth is very useful too.

Very happy with my buy. Highly recommend.
