I've been comparing two tablets:

http://www.sears.com/nextbook-8inch-lcd-1ghz-processor-...

the first tablet has more RAM and a faster Processor (1 GB RAM, 1.2 GHz Cortex A8), while the second has less ram (512MB) and a slower processor (1.0 GHz Cortex A8), but a larger screen (800x600 compared to 800x480), and full multi-touch functionality

any thoughts between them? or any other decent sub-$100 tablets I should look at?

I wouldn't ever buy cheap tablets from brands you never heard of. They generally are garbage and the support sucks big time! Just read the bad reviews on those links!

If that gift is to someone special then buy a better tablet like a Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HD.

+1^ cheap tablets tend to have bad screens and bad touch response. The only tablets worth getting start at about $200. Nook Tablet, Nexus 7 would be good picks. Or find a used one.
