Archos Gen10 101 XS Review
The good: The Archos 101 XS includes a full QWERTY keyboard, memory expansion, Mini-HDMI, and great games performance.
The bad: The tablet never feels like it's safely attached to the keyboard, and unless you have small hands, typing on the keyboard feels cramped. The tablet also features shoddy build quality and at $400 is too expensive for what's offered.
The bottom line: The Archos 101 XS makes performance improvements from the previous generation and includes a full keyboard, but doesn't offer enough to warrant its high price.
