Don't let the Advent Vega's low price tag fool you, this 10.1-inch still packs quite a punch. Launched through UK retailer PC World back in November of 2010, the Vega was ahead of the curve with its 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. The zippy chipset is partnered with 512MB of RAM and a battery that can provide 6.5 hours of 1080p video playback via the tablet's HDMI output.
The Vega has an 0.3MP front-facing camera and microphone, but you won't get the benefit of built-in video-calling found in Android Honeycomb. This slate was released well before the launch of Google's tablet-specific version of Android. Still, third party apps should get you your fix of video chat, and thanks toa built-in 3G SIM-card slot you don't have to worry about being tied down to a WiFi signal. The Advent Vega packs a big value.
