My wife is going to buy me a new tablet to repay me for getting her a new laptop a while back. I want something thats going to allow me to flash linux and run natively.  I would like some suggestions as to a tablet know to work well running debian, fedora, or ubuntu.  The budget is around 250 dollars.  I want a quad core and at least 1 gig of ram (more if possible though I know it may be out of my price range).  I would like for it to be at least a 10 inch screen.  I love my onda but its just to limited for what I want it to do.  The tablet has to be able to be unlocked(fastboot oem unlock with adb) and go into fastboot mode.

It may a little over budget, but a second hand Google Nexus 10 could do.

It's a very nice product in term of performance, features and design. It's not exactly in your specs has it offers a fast dual core ARM Cortex A15 and 2 GB of RAM.

You can run Ubuntu for tablets on it.

Cheers

It is over budget, but thanks for trying to help me.  I need something a little lower in price but it is on track of what Im looking for.

 

Would this be a good one ASUS Transformer Pad Tablet - Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.2GHz, 1GB DDR3, 16GB Flash Storage, 10.1 Multi-Touch Screen, Dual Webcams, Red (RB-ASTF300T-A1-RD) (Refurbished) at TigerDirect.com

I think I'm going to start a new topic since I have changed my original intention when I started this thread.  Thank you everyone who tried to help me, its time to pack it in and get a new tablet.  Admin please close this thread as unsolvable.

I moved the existing posts to a new topic, leaving the previous topic on the fastboot open.

a quad core is a bit hard. but you can get the archos 101titanium because there is linux made for it

or you can wait for the archos 80platinum you will get a quad core 2gig ram and more
