Best Tablet Under $400 you can buy

HP TouchPad Wi-Fi 32GB Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core APQ8060 (1.2GHz) 1GB Memory 9.7" 1024 x 768 Tablet - Black HP webOS 3.0
HP TouchPad Wi-Fi 32GB Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core APQ8060 (1.2GHz) 1GB Memory 9.7" 1024 x 768 Tablet - Black HP webOS 3.0

Pros: Quality, Specs, Price, Value when Android is Installed

Cons: Value with Just WebOS Installed, Lack of apps for WebOS

Overall Review: Great Tablet when Android 4.0.3 is installed which is very simple to do! WebOS By itself is unsupported by many, hardly any apps, many of the apps that do exist don't work in Tablet Mode! With Android Installed this tablet has full hardware acceleration, has Android Market and is just as good as your Galaxy Tabs! So if your willing to Tinker with it you can make into a great tablet for much less then anything else with comparable specs, if your not then you may look elsewhere...

Most Critical Review

Decent Case, But Beware!

APEVIA Black / Silver SECC Steel / Aluminum X-MASTER-AL/500 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
APEVIA Black / Silver SECC Steel / Aluminum X-MASTER-AL/500 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Price When I Get My Rebate Check, Fits Both ATX and Micro ATX Motherboards, Pretty Decent Cooling for a HTPX Case With Places For Two 120MM or 92MM Fans, Includes Two 60MM Fans

Cons: Hard Drive Mounting, Lack Of 3 1/2 Bays, Power Supply Setup, Apevia Says a 8800GTS Will Fit and it won't

Overall Review: Very Nice Case But Take Your Time! Case has great finish but a little be for a HTPC. A ATX motherboard fits but be careful on your choice of Video card, MOST Video cards that require 2 Slots WILL NOT FIT, Also get your own PSU

Great Upgrade for that Aging System

Intel Pentium 4 651 - Pentium 4 Cedar Mill Single-Core 3.4 GHz LGA 775 65W Desktop Processor - P4651-R
Intel Pentium 4 651 - Pentium 4 Cedar Mill Single-Core 3.4 GHz LGA 775 65W Desktop Processor - P4651-R

Pros: Cheap, Runs Cool, Good Overclocking, Works on 1st Gen LGA775 Systems all the way up to the Intel G31 Chipset

Cons: This Processor is Pretty Outdated by current specs

Overall Review: This Processor is a great upgrade to bring new life to a aging system, There are TONS of 1st Gen LGA775 Based systems out there running Celeron's or the 95W TDP PresHOTT, So if your sitting there with a older LGA775 System and wanna give it some more life on the cheap this cpu is the best of the P4's out there.

Good Mother For a Good Price

Foxconn G31MXP-K I7 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Price, Works With Just about Any LGA775 CPU, Good Overclock Options

Cons: Didn't Install Itself, Wasn't Free

Overall Review: Used to motherboard to replace a bad E-Machines Motherboard, fit perfect into the E-Machines Case, everything works great, Supports Just About Any LGA775 CPU From Pentium 4 To Core 2 Quad, Supports DDR2 From 533 To 800

Great Basic WiFI Adapter

Pros: Price Picked it on a Newegg Email Sale, Works Great, Setup within Minutes

Cons: Do not use included CD go to Linksys website and download the latest drivers

Overall Review: Had it at my door within 2 Days, Great for someone that doesn't want to mess with opening a computer, Works good for someone who isn't gaming or streaming HD

Great Price, Decent Case..

APEX PC Series (ATX) PC-302-C Black & Silver Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
APEX PC Series (ATX) PC-302-C Black & Silver Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: CHEAP!, Front USB, Front Audio

Cons: Flimsy But what can you expect at this price?

Overall Review: Got this case for the $19.95 Shell Shocker Price, Was at my door within 2 Days. Installed a ATX LGA 775 Motherboard. Case Will Fit Two 80MM Fans Or Two 92MM Fans, You can also Fit a 80MM/92MM/120MM on the door if you really want to like I did. With that setup and Arctic Silver 5 I have a Pentium Dual Core 3.0 running at 50C Load in a room thats 74F
