Default Nvidia 8" shield tablet

I would not have thought they could come out with a tablet so quick that is very fast and can play pc games.this tablet is awesome.I played Half life 2 on it and was very impressed,plus it is able to run the ureal 4 engine.If I had not seen it with my eyes I would not have belived it. I hardly ever play with my big gameing rig any more.Nvidia is doing the right thing because tablets and phones is where the money is.I will never spend $500 on a video card anymore.when I can spend $300 and have a powerful PC in the palm of my hand.The 8" screen is perfect with it's 1980 x 1200 resolution. colors are very vivid,not as bright as the ne Samsung galaxy S ,but still looks great .Unheard of benchmark numbers for a tablet .Battery life is around 10 hours just web searching,but when playing a heavy game with all the goodies turn up,it is more like 2 and half hours which is not bad for the games it can play. Front fireing speakers with bass ports ,more like mid ports ,but still impressive sound for a tablet.two 5 mp cameras,which I will never use but the back has auto focus.Holds up to a 128gb micro sd card. I have been very impressed with tis tablet ,I had a 7" that had a tegra 3 in it and was nothing to write home about,even tho the games it could play look good.
