The Archos 80 G9 tablet is a great buy for the money. I did a lot of research before purchasing this tables, and I am most impressed with its speed and graphics. Archos G9 tablets have access to the true Android Market unlike many other lower end tablets. Another great feature of the Archos G9 series is the ability to add 3G connectivity via an Archos USB 3G adapter. I have downloaded many games and apps that run smooth as silk on this tablet. Angry Birds comes with the tablet and plays smooth as silk. The Dual Core processor is plenty to make this tablet run with the best of them. I have also found that it has a very long battery life. I have been able to take it along on jobs where I have wireless access and listened to the radio all day thru the tablet and not lost all the battery.
