Zen and the art of tablet buying.
When we last reviewed a tablet from ASUS, the MeMO Pad 7, we were impressed by the build quality, aesthetics, and price of the device... as well as ASUS's ability to play fast and loose with random capital letters.

Lock and load; we're reviewing the MEGA Bloks Halo Metallic Series Cobalt micro action figure.
