Looking for some advise for a new tablet from those that know?
I know there are alot of members here that know far more then I when it comes to Android tablets, so I would like to ask you guys for some advise.
I would like to get a tablet to pretty much replace my laptop for pretty much everything but gaming (except for games that are droid specific). That pretty much leaves email, surfing the web, vidoes, youtube, Facebook, playing with Droid apps, chat, minor office work (Quick Office, PDF, printing) Images, ect..
I haven't much money, infact I have none, but my parents are willing to buy one for me but the price has to be as low as possible yet still allow me to do all that I listed above. I would also like to not have to replace it in a few months because it just isn't powerfull enough to handle things.
I have been looking online and found a number of tablets, and most are way out of my price range. Having said that I did find one that seems to be pretty highly rated but being that my knowledge of tablets, and androids as whole, is fairly limited, I don't know know what I should be looking for in a tablet.
Here is the tablet I found and I am looking to purchase one soon. Can you guy please give me your advise as to what I should be looking for? Also can you take a look at the tablet (link and details below) I have listed?
The tablet is from China, and I have heard a mixed bag of thoughts on devices from China so I hope to avoid any political rhetoric.
Thank you in advance for your most excellent wisdom. Hopefully you guy will either show me a green light and I can purchase this one, or you guys feel there is a better one for around the same price.
