    The main reason I want one is to use as an XBMC/Boxeeremote for a HTPC I'm building, as a decent remote with keyboard costs about £50, I thought I might as well pay the extra £30 and have an ePad, but if they aren't too good I'll probably stick to a standard mini keyboard/mouse for now (like this Rii Mini)
    I use this Bad Boy with my htpc

    This is pretty interesting too!

    Not at that price thank you very much.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the Advent Vega in a few weeks, but I need to have a play around with a tablet before I buy one.

    I believe it is exactly the same as this one.

    If you can make it to the EduGeek stand at BETT then we should be very tablet heavy. These include Android 10 and 7 inch models, iPad and the RM tablet (hopefully) and a Sony e-book reader.

    This may seem like going off at a tangent but i have been looking at something like these for things like connecting directly to switches (when I need to reprogram them). So all I need is a terminal and a serial port.
    A usb to serial adaptor (with driver would do). Before someone says 'use a laptop' some switches are in such obscure postitions, that what ever you use, you have to hold in you hands whils holding on to the cab and balancing on the top of ladders etc!
    So at first I was after a cheap tablet laptop (something like in Stargate Atlantis BTW any one know what make/model they were?), but the idea of a android 7 inch/10 inch seems good.
    Any thoughts?
    A specific use that shouldnt be hard to do surely?

    Would this be doable with an Android tablet? If not, perhaps a HP Slate 500 would be a better choice since it runs Windows 7 (although it's not exactly cheap).

    I was thinking of the Advent (PC World) Vega, running Android, for £250. But then I remembered the new RM Slate, which at £400 (well, nearer £500 with VAT and delivery, i.e. double the price) might be an idea - runs Windows 7, has a bunch of USB slots, basically looks like a desktop PC squished into a tablet case. If it runs Windows 7 then I figure it should also boot any other OS you wanted.
