    Tablet time

    Looking to get a tablet pc this week.

    Budget is 300 max.

    I don't really want an iPad, due to being stuck on the App Store, the misses likes android too much.

    Nexus 7 is a bit too small

    We would ideally like 32gb.

    Any suggestions on what to get?

    Many thanks
    Ben

    iPad. No contest I'm afraid. My girlfriend loves Android and detests Apple yet she said she wanted an iPad Mini so I bought her one and she absolutely loves it.

    Unfortunately all iPads are out of my price range, unless I get a second hand one?

    You could get a 16GB mini for 269. What do you need the storage for? I've had an iPad for 18 months now and 16GB has always been big enough.

    For second hand you'll easily get an iPad 2. I sold mine for 200.

    Storage is for films, books and music.

    I was hoping we could put a few films on it for my son to watch on long journeys.

    Yeah I see what you're saying. Well a Galaxy Tab could have it's storage expanded with a SD card. Pop all the films on that.

    For iPads you could get a 32GB iPad 2 for 300 easily.

    Ah, I didn't know that

    Could I plug a galaxy tab straight into a hdmi, or USB to use on a tv?
