      God, this would be the perfect Xmas Gift I couldn't have. I've been like speding my saved money in books and didn't have the chance to buy something like this.. I'll have my finger crossed, even though it's not so easy to win. Actually, this tablet would give me the opportunity to own a decen "laptop" (or similar). Good luck!! xx
