compare these to please and tell me exactly how much difference there is in the specs. They are both tablet pc's

1.2 GHz Intel Atom Z510
1 GB DDR2 SDRAM
Hard Drive 60 GB
10.07 inches, 5.27 inches, 0.62 inches
1.76 pounds
Intel GMA 500
9" 1024 X 600

Intel Atom 1.3GHz (Z520)
16 GB SSD
DDR2 1.0GB
8.2 x 4.6 x 0.8 inches
1.45 Pounds
Intel GMA 500
7" 1024 x 600

There isnt going to be much of a difference is it? I prefer the bottom one because its 7 inches but it cost 200$ more. Is a SSD better for tablets then a HDD?

In my opinion for a tablet that you will be carrying around an SSD is better because if you drop it you have a lesser chance that it will crash, also it will be less pron to damage by movement.

An SSD is a drive that has no moving parts and it stores information in dense memory cells. A hard drive is a drive that has a plaster that spins and an arm that moves to read and write data to the plater.

See here:

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_disk_drive

2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid_state_drive

Keep in mind that the $200 isnt just for the SSD but it is also for the faster processor and the better ram as well as the larger screen.
