I picked up this tab a few days ago after some extensive research. Was in the market for a budget tablet $250 or lower. My choices initially were the Kindle Fire, B&N Nook and the Ideapad A1. When the specs/price was put together the Ideapad A1 came out way ahead of the rest. It's true that the Nook and Kindle Fire are dual core tabs but that really doesn't mean anything since usability there is severely limited to be anything more than a media consumption tool for their respective vendors - Amazon and B&N. The Kindle Fire as a permanent storage handicap of 6GB so that was out. The Nook requires an additional $30 SD card since there is only 1GB user space on the device...so that brings the tab price to $279. For just $199 this Ideapad tab gives you everything that you could want in a budget tablet.

- 16GB of storage space (2GB+14GB internal SD)
- MicroSD expansion slot
- GPS which works offline as well (I have not tested this)
- Bluetooth 2.1 in addition to WiFI b/g/n
- Front and rear facing cameras although the front cam is pretty low resolution (.3MP) it's better than no camera at all!

The tab ships with Gingerbread using a very ugly Launcher, this is quickly remedied by installing Launcher Pro which makes it nice and pretty. The capacitive touch screen has no lags at all that I noticed and works very smoothly.

Observations:
- Screen quality is excellent, at this price point it's terrific, does have an ambient light sensor in the front
- Audio quality via headphones is great, the speaker is pretty loud but speakers on mobile devices are all pretty bad so...

After what seemed like forever waiting for a 7" tablet that was designed to be a tablet, with a capacitive screen, GPS, bluetooth, a camera (this has two) and all of the standards (not requiring cell service) for an affordable price (and not being a China wanna be), I thought I finally hit gold with the A1. I actually pre-ordered this directly from Lenovo prior to common availability. Well, to sum it up briefly, it's tons better than any China Wanna Be of any size, but only ties with a converted B&N Nook. (*"converted meaning: rooted and using either a Gingerbread or Honeycomb formatted SD.)

The processor lags compared to Nook. If surfing the Market or the web, you're really never quite sure if you hit the back button because of the lag. Kinda annoying when you discover you've lost you're search or closed out of a program because of this.

Although the resolution is the same as the Nook, the quality and light sensing of the Nook is by far superior.

The touch sensing is equal to the Nook. At times it is very sensitive - unless it's edge sensing. Like the Nook, it sometimes gets a bit persnickety.

The cameras aren't to compare to today's phone or digital camera standards, but this isn't a phone or digital camera and wasn't designed as such. They do the job exactly as I would expect them to. (**Skype is claimed to not work, however other video chat clients have been reported to.)

The GPS rocks. Plain and simple. No data/Wi-Fi required as long as you use a locally installed Nav program. Lenovo includes a limited (one state) nav program just for this. If you hotspot your phone for a data connection, you can use Google's Navigation which is also included. (**GPS does not work within buildings but does fine in a car in a wooded area.

Idea­pad A1 Pros:

*Dual cam­eras (3.1 megapix­els for the rear cam­era)
*Built in GPS and Google maps
*The only one with Blue­tooth
*Built in 16GB stor­age, eas­ily expand­able up to an addi­tional 16GB for $20, or 32GB for around $40 via Micro SD Cards. Accord­ing to Ama­zon 8GB is enough to hold 80 apps, plus 10 movies or 800 songs or 6,000 books.
*The light­est of all
*Runs Android 2.3 (Gin­ger­bread), with many more options than the Ama­zon App Store. No need to hack it or root it.
*Mini USB port for fast dig­i­tal video, audio and data trans­fer. It is also the same port as my phone, one less cable to worry about.

Idea­pad A1 Cons:

*Lack of 3G sup­port.
*512 MB of RAM vs. 1 GB on the Kin­dle Fire.
*Sin­gle proces­sor while the oth­ers have a dual core.

Con­clu­sion: For $200 I get pretty much the same, or bet­ter, specs than the Kin­dle Fire and Nook Color, but I have access to the full Android Mar­ket­place AND the Kin­dle Reader app. If I com­bine this with Ama­zon Prime ($79/year or $39/year if you are a stu­dent) I believe I can get the best of all worlds.

I've had the Ideapad A1 for almost a month, have used it extensively every day, and it has run flawlessly during that time. This tablet has a very bright, clear, high resolution screen - and viewing pictures, movies, web sites, etc. is a pleasure. Netflix, YouTube, etc. all work great with no lags. The capacitive touch screen is very smooth.

For just $199, the specs on this tablet were better than anything else I could find in its price range:
- Front and rear facing cameras
- GPS works offline (NavDroyd is installed)
- WiFi/Bluetooth
- 16GB of internal storage space
- MicroSD expansion slot (I added a 32GB MicroSD card)
- Comes with Android Market with access to 400,000 apps (no rooting necessary).

Audio is good. Speaker is fairly loud, but of course the quality via headphones is much better.

Battery life runs about 8 hours in airplane mode, display at about 10% (plenty bright for indoor use) and WiFi on with fairly heavy surfing. The tablet also has an ambient light sensor, which I don't use.

The single core processor handles movies without any lag. Surfing the web is almost as fast as my dual-core laptop. I have not found any issues with the speed of this tablet.

Overall, this is a great tablet. It compares very favorably against everything else in this price range - and I'm very happy with my purchase!

UPDATE AFTER ALMOST 2 MONTHS: I'm still using the A1 extensively every day and have loaded up this tablet with apps, books, and nearly 20GB of music. Still have not had any issues. The display continues to impress me and others who comment on the clarity of everything from photos, to videos, to web pages.
