    Can anybody recommend a 'cheap" tablet/netbook that has a built in GPS unit that I could use with the Mobilinkd TNC? I really don't want to go the android phone route if I don't have to.

    "Phones" have GPS..., "Tablets" not so much. However, there may be external USB port equipment solutions to resolve that issue.

    Many cheap Chinese tablets have GPS. Just be sure that you read "GPS" & not "Location", which can be estimated by WIFI signals.
    If you need Wondows, ask around for someone that upgraded their Surface Tablet. Even the older ones are better than an 8 year old laptop (High end).
