To put this simply, I would like a cheap slate (as in non-convertible) tablet computer. All that I really need is a camera, a microphone, and some DDR3 memory already installed (preferably 4GB). I can upgrade the hard drive later.

In all seriousness, though, I do not expect to get a much lower price, since the lowest satisfactory price I got was around $2,400, and I read that these types of computers are expensive...

Maybe a Samsung Galaxy Tab?
I think I read somewhere that one of those cost more than an iPad.

Why non-convertible? Lenovo makes a decent line of tablet pcs including the X200s and they are cheaper than $2,000... but if you beef them up more they might not be.

some stats from that page:

If Windows is your game, The HP Slate 500 was just released to market, however it has DDR2 modules and they're soldered onto the board (800USD):

On the OSX side, you can buy an entry-level MBP (which has DD3 modules) and send it to Axiotron to be converted into a tablet (about 2000USD total).

These are of course US prices, as I have no idea what comparable hardware runs in Puerto Rico.

I already know about those, but thank you, anyways.

P.S. My father is just going to buy the expensive tablet anyways, even if I object.
