Default Looking for a Tablet computer - please help

Ok, So I am looking for a tablet for work.
  • Has the ability to read and write using Microsoft office.
  • Plenty of room for digital manuals in pdf format.
  • Flash support is preferred.
  • Wifi of course, 3g not necessary.
  • USB slot(s)
  • 7-10" approximate size
  • Would prefer something I can use a stylus type pen on to make notes happen.
  • $800 is about as high as I'd like to go... but for the right fit could bump a little. Of course if there is a 200-300 that fits my needs, sign me up!
Basically a small business oriented type computer in tablet form is what I am in need of.

Thanks in advance!

I'd get one of these. (Though it only comes with a 30 day trial of windows 7). It's in your price bracket and it runs windows 7 so it will do everything you have listed here.

wow I didn't know you could get a tablet capable of running full windows for that price. That looks pretty sweet. I was looking at a cheap android tablet but that has to have a capacitive touch screen. I know there are so many crappy tablets out there running android 1.6 with resistive touch screens and they all suck. One I am looking at is the archos 70 or 101

im not sure about office support, but you could look at the Galaxy Tab. Runs an Android OS, really nice in most areas. Theres probably an app on the android market that reads and writes .ppt or .doc.
