    Both of them are about $600 on eBay. If you could buy only one, which one would you buy? I really want a semi-decent battery life, but I really want the touch screen as well. Unfortunately, there is no single tablet that does both in my budget.

    Personally i like my 2710p. I don't think you could go wrong with either though.

    If you're getting the XT, I'd suggest buying directly from the Dell outlet to make sure you get a 3 year warranty on it. If you look around every so often there's a 20% off coupon for the Dell Outlet stuff too (www.twitter.com/delloutlet)

    I like the capacitive screen and multitouch a lot, but if I hadn't gotten the XT I'd definitely have gotten either the 2710p or the 2730p.

    Why dont you fill out a normal application atom? When you ask a question like that, it is just going to come down to preference.

    I managed to snag a 2710p for $400 that is basically a steal.. so I"m going with that.

    Can someone tell me why my 6 month old tablet suddenly feels worthless? Anyone?

    Because perhaps you associate the low price that I got it for, for oldness and oldness for a lack of quality, and a lack of quality could be called worthless.

    But I was lucky and 2710p's are normally around $800, so relax.
