Post Ipad or Galaxy Note 10.1
Im trying to decide between the 2. Im no apple fanatic by any means buy I need a tablet. The OS on the Apple creeps me out but the tablet is cool. As for the samsung Im talking about the 10.1 non 2014 version. I dont see paying 600 for the 2014 version.

Depends what you want to do on it and who it's for...

Personally I would suggest looking at the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" instead.

It's for me. Everybody else in the house has one so now I want one because they whine when I use theirs..
Mostly just browse the web.
Laptops seem to have taken a back seat in our house. we dont even use ours anymore since these tablets came around plus I have my desktop.

How about a full Windows tablet then, such as:
http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msu ... .288728700
http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msu ... .289455300

At least it's a full x86-PC so you can run everything on it, including Flash.

The cheapest iPad is what, $399? And only has 16GB of storage? Both those above offer so much more for the same price.

for basic web browsing, you can't argue with the apple product. Its simple and clean.

I have the first-gen and 7" is too small IMO.
