Big Question (Answered): “Would You Buy an Inferior Tablet, Over an iPad, If It Was Priced at Less Than $200?”

If some tablet manufacturer tried this as a business model, would people buy their inferior product over the market leader? So, rather than continue to ruminate on this, we asked you, “Would you buy an inferior tablet, over an iPad, if it was priced at less than $200?”.
