I was talking to the guy at best buy and he said that the asus prime i believe it is called is pretty good. it is an android and wifi only. I dont know about the price though but from what I heard I really liked it and was thinking of getting it.

FI has one, he really likes it – he uses it far more than his laptop. I think it’s the Zoom (might be spelled differently). I’ve used it a few times, it’s nice, very easy interface. Not sure on the price point, as he bought it a while ago.

I call it the iZoom. He does not like that. 🙂

Have you thought about getting a refurbished iPad2? In my (admittedly biased) opinion, they’re considerably better than any other tablet on the market. The wifi versions don’t require any kind of data plan and they can be purchased for right around $300 (or maybe even less).

My Uncle is the “tech” guy of our family and we were asking him the same question. He highly recommended the blackberry playbook, which is around $250. My FI’s brother happens to have one and we talked to him and he loved it! Only problem with is there are not nearly as many app’s as Mac offers, but for $250 vs $700, I’m okay with that!

I have a Playbook and I love, love love it. No, it doenst have as many apps as Apple products but thats a) changing now that Blackberry playbook upport android apps that are ported over and b) irrelevant because 90% of the apps on the Ipad are useless games. I dont use 95% of the apps I have on the Apple. I own both the Blackberry and Apple products, so I’m well versed with both products. The Playbook has great sound and video, its fast when surfing the net, its a great ereader, and it fits in my purse easily. The Ipads biggest drawbacks for me are the size and weight, it is NOT realistically portable, its huge and too big to use as an ereader. There are no “good” programs for the Ipad that I cant get the same or similar versions for my Playbook.

Not as familiar with Android, I owned a Kobo Vox, which is Android, for about a week, but returned it due to the poor battery life and got the Playbook instead. Friends have the Asus and seem to be happy with it.

@miksje130:  SO has this one, we bought it on sale for 330 or so. It’s very very nice. I love using it for all sorts of things.
