    The general use/mainstream tablets are for your standard consumer. They are affordable, great for surfing the Web, doing photo editing or listening to music. Don't get me wrong many college students love these tablets too, in big part due to the price. They are packed with standard features and the HPs come with some nifty remotes and nice speakers, almost a multi-media tablet. If you are interested in testingout what Tablet PCs have to offer, one of these is a good place to start. Prices are very reasonable for a 12.1" notebook thatgives you the opportunity to write on the screen.

    Less than $1,000

It has a solid design with a cool imprint finish and is called the "entertainment tablet", thanks to the Altec Lansing speakers and full feature set. Very fun to play with.
