    Hard drive will be Seagate's 7mm Momentus Thin, so it'll fit all 250 GB in a slim package.

    The one thing I'm worried about is RAM. The Gen8 tablets only had 256 Megs of RAM. It made for a slightly sluggish UI experience, although the graphics support was second to none in a device that cheap with that low of RAM, I personally had NO problem playing Wave Blazer or Turbofly 3D on my own Archos 70 IT w/250 GB HDD (Gen8).
