I guess it depends on what you can afford. The biggest difference between the two is the display, the M003 has an 8inch display over the m001's 7inch.If you're happy with a smaller display, then I'd skip the EKEN and go for a legit apad. They do cost more, but it has a much faster processor in it. The EKEN's use a VIA chip running at around 300mhz, where as the apad's use a Rockchip running at 600mhz, which includes a dsp running at 500mhz. The dsp is only used at certain times, like when playing videos, but the main cpu is certainly much faster.It's your choice based on budget.
I would miss the M003 altogether, there is a lack of custom firmware for it. Like recommended, if you can afford it go for the aPad. If not then the M001 is still extremely capable for day-to-day things such as web browsing, checking emails etc.
