    Hello, I need help choosing the right tablet. I'm searching for a cheap decently reliable tablet. Has to be under $120, able to play YouTube videos, and have access to the Google marketplace (has to be usable). The tablet should have enough power to run a game such as "Angry Birds," without lag/choppy'ness. With my price point being so low, I know that I fall into the "Chinese" product category. I have been looking at the 7inch tablet on dealextreme.com as well as other Chinese wholesale website. But with that being said, I would like to know what your recommendations are and why, please keep in mind that I am a "noob" when it comes to tablets. Basically I need a cheap, decently reliable tablet. (Later on I will upgrade to a non-generic tablet)
    Thanks!

    Just did a quick search of the COBY, basically the information I got states that I will not be able to access the Google app store out of the box. The website says something about "rooting" so that it will. What is "rooting?"

    I recommend PickEgg. It's a website like Dealextreme. And most tablets there seem to be less than 200 bucks.
    I got one at about 150 bucks.
    Good luck with your tablet!
