Take a look at the new Nooks. I got the 9 inch model and don't regret it. $149 it runs well and there are two modern jellybean Roms for it. My daughter is still using my old A1.

Unboxed my Nexus 10 today. Already in love with it. My A1 is heavy beside it. It's just a beautiful machine.

(beautiful,fast etc)

Clarification
I did the installation of LePad 2G Exchange MP
the external SDcard shows up as a storage USB

it's interesting that people have been upgrading their A1s with something bigger. Myself, I have gone the other way, and bought myself my first android phone! Huawei Y300, 4" dual core, ips.. yada yada for £60! absolute steal, and likely to do everything on it I did on my tablet... but better (was never impressed with soud quality on the a1). The A1 will be used now to train the wife on android, and to run the kids games.

I have my GS3 which is great and I love it, but the screen size is not practical for doing any kind of work or even reading. I used my A1 to do work, but the keyboard was just too small. On my Nexus 10 I can comfortably type.

As for the sound, I know my A1 had a bad speaker. It would crackle and hiss all the time. With that and the absolute lack of updates from Lenovo I've been scared off of Chinese companies.
