Verge score: 9.3

Part of Archos' trio of Platinum tablets, the 97b takes on the dimensions and display resolution of the iPad while coming in $200 short of it.

Description

Adding some minor updates to the tablet that started it all, the 4th generation iPad drops the classic 30-pin dock connector for a Lightning port and upgrades to an A6X processor that offers double the graphics performance of the A5X. The tablet remains the same beyond that, with the same form factor and display as the 3rd generation model.
