My husband has the galaxy note 10.1. I think it's awesome, with multi-windows like a computer. It also has a stylus that allows for a lot of creative work. Beats the iPad, IMO.
This is an oubliette. The labyrinth is full of 'em.

Thanks O! I am confused in what to purchase. I am a Mac gal so it's a default to choose them again. The Samsung has a way better price tag! Lol

Google's Nexus 7. Not subject to Apple's restrictions, no need to "jailbreak", gets android straight from Google so it is the best version and runs perfectly.

So the choices are, Kindle HD fire, works via Amazon Cloud, not good
Any tablet running on Android = Google = No privacy

Ipad, if your a Mac gal as stated, why would you go with an alternative to what you know works, besides price

With Apple you have to "jailbreak" the device to get around limitations set up by the Apple Store apps only and you are stuck with itunes for music and video. Besides being more expensive. I got a 32GB Nexus for $249. Google can "spy" on you but if you believe that then so does Apple and your ISP for that matter.

Re: GLP techies I need your advice on a tablet/iPad buy~
I have used a variety of devices and I say the iPad is way above and beyond the others. Everyone says "jailbreak it!" but I do not agree at all. Why jailbreak it? I don't mind staying within Apples guidelines because it ensures my purchases will work on my Apple device. With all of these Android devices running around, it is hard for a developer to fully know what hardware the app they are writing will be on. Therefore performance may vary. I would just as soon stick with the iPad. I have or have worked with every version of iPad, Kindle Fire, Windows Mobile 8, and various other Android devices. Go with the iPad and don't jailbreak it. You will be very satisfied.
All this has happened before, and will happen again.

If you are new to this and would be satisfied stuck in the Apple universe then yeah, I'd pay a bit more and go with the Ipad. More experienced users I'd say save the money and go with the top of the line Android which is Google's Nexus. I have both and prefer the Nexus personally and at 32GB for only $249 it is a steal.

The iPad is much cooler than the others, but it's also a controlled environment, where Apple decides what software is allowed to be run on it. I hate that crap, but since my wife's workplace decided she shouls have an iPad she have no use for, I got one handed to me anyway.

Really cool little machine, if a tad evil.
