    I have my own custom business software development business (20 years) and I purchase hardware for clients. I have also built 2 PCs from scratch (components). I have been dealing with ZipZoomFly for like forever. I have purchased "tons" of stuff from them - just about everything free ship FedEx 2 day. They almost always ship the following business day and sometimes the same business day!

    It would be my unqualified recommendation to go with ZipZoomFly. I needed a new hard drive. NewEgg had one I was interested in that came with a $25 mail-in rebate. Newegg shipping was 6.99. ZipZoomFly had the same drive at a total cost lower than the NewEgg net cost - with no mail-in forms to deal with. The drive arrived yesterday. When I need hardware, I start at ZipZoomFly.

    Quick question..

    Why is the C314 so much cheaper than most other tablet PCs out there that are half as powerful?

    The low cost does not mean low quality.
    My C314 is my second Acer. I had the Acer 8006LMi notebook for 2 years. I sold it on EBay when I got my C314. The 8006 was a PC Magazine Editors' Choice winner. I had not really heard much about Acer before and thought of Acer as an inferior product before the PC Magazine article. I never regretted buying the 8006 and certainly do not regret buying the C314 - the C314 has become my primary PC, my Dell P4 has been reduced to a file server.
