I plan on buying a HP Touchpad and was wondering if it's still worth it.

I plan to install latest CM11 build and use it to watch HD Movies and play some 3d games.

Does the dual core processor struggle in those tasks at all?

I plan to pay about 50 which is the average ebay price i see them being sold for

Don't know about game's but using MX it will play anything and as you are also a UK person please send me a link, at 50 I will defiantly buy 1 or 2 because I have so much fun installing different ROMs.
Stay Lucky

Have a look yourself on ebay it's easy. Do a search for "Sold Listings"

One recently went today for 38.00

Is this for a 32GB or 16GB? Overall, I think that's still going to be a decent price for either (much better deal for 32GB obviously). If you look forward to putting in the time to install CM11, troubleshoot when necessary, and just want something to experiment with - definitely do it. Has no problems with videos, can't say much about 3D games.

With all the tablets I have the Touchpad is still one of my Favorites. Not much out they can't still handle. Around $100-120 for a 32GB in great shape is a good deal.

Unequivocally yes! For the cost its one of the best options on a budget. Games run well just take a look at my gaming videos, most of them are on the HP Touchpad. However the screen res is only 1024 x 768 so your HD videos will be cropped, get the Mx video player.

Try to get one with the HP Touchstone charger as that has brought mine back to life on several occasions and is a great stand.
