Default So school me on tablets

Looking for a tablet.

Main purpose would be magazines and movies. No dedicated connection, I'd look to be using hot spots/WiFi.

IPad Air. Buy the most memory you can afford. You won't regret it. Plus if you decide it's an unnecessary addition, you can sell it and get most of your money back.

My first tablet was an android -- paid over $700 for it, sold it a year later for $250. Currently I have the 16gb iPad Air. Just wish I had bought more memory. Also IMO the mini is too small especially for magazines.

Either buy 750's used tablet for a steal or get an iPad.

I bought my wife the original when the 2 released. It's been pretty good until it got left behind in OS updates.

My mom got a Samsung tablet a while ago. I think she found the power button and can turn it on now.

^^^I just can't bring myself to buy into the evil empire that is Apple.

I'm kinda thinking the Samsung.

What about screen size. I'm thinking 10".

I like the iPad mini size over the regular iPad. We have one of each. The iPad gets heavy after holding it a while.

You could use my observations to correlate with the Samsung Galaxy tablets.

Buy from Costco so you have more of a warranty and a good price.

Samsung would be my second choice after Apple. The best thing to do is go somewhere like best buy and check them out. Then you'll see what size you like best.

That's because you don't have the iPad Air.

Agreed. My coworker has the mini and my air feels lighter when holding both.

Any specific reason why you don't want to consider the apple? I always wonder what's behind statements like that.

If we get a second pad, we will get a mini. Do they make it in retina yet?

If not getting an iPad, I'd look at a tablet with a usb jack and a Micro SD slot to expand memory.
