Excerpt: The ViewSonic ViewBook is also an iPad alternative. If you are not an Apple fan or you simply want a cheaper tablet solution, then the ViewSonic ViewBook is for you. Fortunately, this tablet does run on Android so it caught my interest. Unfortunately, it does not run on the latest version of Android. It is actually a few generations behind, but it will actually get my tasks done. Viewsonic offers a unique feature, which I find fairly useful.
