The answer: yes.
Yes, a $100 tablet is a waste of money. I have yet to see one that isn't (and I have bought a couple). Still, you need not spend a fortune to get a good tablet. I have been very pleased with my Viewsonic G tablet, and for the brief time I owned one, the Archos 101 was also quite nice (I prefer the Viewsonic G, though).
