a cheap table to meet you basic computing needs tesco is doing a n 8inch nachos 80 cobalt touchscreen tablet .this post has been done on it. I have also been able to load view and edit my gr tree on it. The table is selling just under £50 . The ideal toy for when your stuck in bed or just lazing in the garden. I brought on today as a late Xmas pressy to myself I'm well chuffed with it
