Such a freedom of a device provide vs iPad2. My choice is Archos 97 carbon, its rich feature.

Pretty nice for a budget tablet.
I'd still rather have my Infinity though. ;D

Not really that great... You can easily find a Tegra 2 Tab (original GT10.1/ Original Transformer) for the same price.
And the Nexus 7 has just about the same res screen for less.

Please check the chipset that powers the tablet before saying something like "it’s definitely far from being underpowered".
It's actually a 1GHz CPU which name they don't even mention, not to comment they don't even tell you the GPU of the chip. So it can be laggy as hell with such a resolution and probaly an old Adreno 205 behind the GPU.
And for that price you can get the Google Nexus 7 with a 4 core CPU Tegra 3 and ULP GeForce with 12 cores. In my opinion there is nothing to decide there.
