Hello, i'm new to the forums.

I do not know which one to get, the Arnova 10 G2 or the Archos 101 IT. Is the 101 IT due to be discontinued? 
I know the Arnova 10 G2 is missing an HDMI port but has better performance. 

I don't know which one has better battery life. 
Is the Archos 101's performance that bad? 256mb is the bare minimum.
The Arnova 10 G2 has better media playback and 720p recording. 
I am not sure if the 101 can play 1080p.

Please can you tell me other advantages and disadvantages of each one and advise me on which one to get.

Thanks!

Both Arnova 10 G2 and Archos 101 IT are quite old machines, they run rather outdated Android OS (Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Android 2.2 Froyo respectively) and their hardware has some age too. The 101 is part of Archos Gen8 family and has better support as Archos still pushed firmwares, but it's still Android 2.2 Froyo.

As you can see in our Archos 101 IT vs Arnova 10 G2 benchmark  there is no big difference in performance between those two, compared to newer models such as the Archos G9. I don't have the battery life numbers with me, but it should be in the 4-6 hours time for both.

As for video playing, the 101 is more suited for 720p content, while the Arnova can cope with some 1080p videos.

About 720p recording, I'd say it's not that important, as the video camera on both devices is very limited in definition and quality.

Cheers.
