    RK2906 based tablet — it should be fine for browsing websites, and playing some simple 2d games.

      My RK2906 tablet cannot even play Bad Piggie and Angry Birds Star Wars (crush upon launch). What's the use of tablet when you can't even play Angry Birds?! :)

    don't see why it cant play angry birds… i have an aldi tablet (10') with very similar specks, and it plays angry birds. I think it is fabulous for the price. Anyway as with ALL aldi stuff …. buy it … take it home … install angry birds (i bet it will play) and if it does not OR for any other reason you don't like it just take it back for a refund. They have a no questions 60 day return policy as long as you don't destroy the original packaging…

      I was specifically talking about the Rockchip RK2906 CPU with Vivante GC800 GPU. Mine was MSI Enjoy 10 with RK2918 (which is the same as RK2906 but with HDMI output), and I'm quite disappointed with the game compatibility.

      I have other older tablets and they are just slow when playing games. RK29xx is not too bad as a single core CPU but most recent games would just crash upon launch. Angry Birds for example — original, Seasons, Rio would work, but Space and Star Wars wouldn't.

      The 10" Aldi might be using a different CPU. Allwinner A10/A13 would probably be better single core budget CPUs as they use Mali-400. But true, 60 days return policy from Aldi is also good so you can always try out.

      The newer versions of Angry Birds have increased CPU requirements, hence refusing to run on older tablets.
