In for 1, at this price it becomes a hobby plaything. One review on the Staples website mentioned that you can link to your desktop and run it's programs through the tablet using a windows app called TeamViewer. No need to install the apps on the tablet as long as you are within wi-fi range of your router. Another review mentioned that the bluestacks program allows you to install Google Playstore apps and use them on this tablet.

Managed to order 1 in Atlanta but no confirmation email yet. The product does saw sold out at my location after the order so keeping fingers crossed that it goes thru!

Local store has one so I looked up its reviews and such. Gonna have to pass though. Windows 8 is great if you have a beastly tablet with 3d acceleration. Midrange windows tablets are just going to leave you wondering "What CAN I run on this?!"

An android tablet in this price range will run all android apps and all games. And give you better battery life.

OOS for me sadface

ugh... I was really in the market for a 10" but for this price I had to pull the trigger -- I'll leave it unopened for a while just in case something better comes up.
If this really comes with office 2013 home/student as the Amazon description says, then that is a major plus -- although I would really like MS Access too.

Has anyone found a good 10" for around this price-point? I had been leaning toward the WalMart Le Pan android but wanted a better price

edit:  I don't think this is expired yet... since I placed my order *after* this thread was marked expired.  It's OOS online... but you might find it locally for pick-up.  Also, getting all the coupons to work at the same time took some doing with the back-button in ie10.  Dropped the "instant" savings... added the coupon code... back, back... back... several times... place order again.... tada... both coupons.  Good luck.

  not at all true from what I've observed.  Have the Dell Venue Pro 8 32GB with this same Z3470D CPU and have been extremely impressed with how capable of a computer it actually is.  Curious as to what you're basing this conclusion on though if it is from experience of your own.

Thanks OP, I ordered one about 1pm eastern for local PU - one was left. Still no PU confirmation and order doesn't appear in history. Called Staples On-line and their system is totally down. Local store cannot confirm order, but confirms they have the 1 in stock. Apparently not willing to hold it, though, so I have to hope it's there when they finally get the system up and the pick-up confirmation out. On hold now with Staples to "see what they can do" -- 10+ minutes now.

  Well, Street fighter 4 is what I consider my benchmark for "gaming and no gaming". Its based off upper end p4 performance and at best, 7900gs graphic performance. Even then the game does not demand much. Alas both tablets fail that test. I also like to find out if the cpu is capable of SSA styled subtitles. Some of my anime shows can be pretty heavy on the text effects and it causes a hit on the cpu. MX player on android handles these well by forcing refresh rates down. Saddly the subtitle plugins for windows are old and aren't as configurable.

Ordered one around noon and never got a confirmation email....nor has my CC been charged. Disappointing, but typical of the dark void of my life where even luck is forsaken.

thanks for the heads up op. Although my store didn't show any on the online pickup screen, a quick trip down showed 3 on the shelf. Grabbed one, and left 2 for some other lucky FW'er

as this could still be live in store YMMV, i would move it back to hot deals.

I ordered online for in-store pickup but as others have stated Staples system was down so I never received the confirmation. I managed to get one locally, the manager said he will cancel the order if it comes through in their system finally. I was looking for a good low priced tablet for a trip to Spain, Thanks OP

  Nothing yet for 9:03 am pacific time order online for store pick up.
I went to store, they show 2, 1 is the display, the other was defective one, he showed it to me....
So no deal, though he would have honored the online print out of the store pick payment even though he has not received anything from Staples yet.
This was at 12:15 pm pacific time

Staples online system was down so never got confirmation back. I printed my order and called the store. They had 2 in stock, open boxes so they matched the order price of $124.99 and gave 5% off for open box. Fantastic deal for a windows tablet with HDMI port!! It came with MS office home & student 2013. Works great, quite fast. Connect to external monitor with micro HDMI and use Bluetooth keyboard, wireless hard drive 128Gb from Staples so now capacity doesn't matter. Also has slot for microSD card Samsung for another 64gb at WalMart for $29 today. Light weight and perfect to carry everywhere. Installed Teamviewer to use this to access my home desktop so storage or apps install no longer an issue. It did come with only 11gb free space left after windows 8.1 but not an issue. A great deal for $118.
