    Ok so here's the deal:
    Am looking to take some time off my laptop by getting a tablet to handle my daily not so demanding tasks, like playing a few arcadish games, watching series and movies, doing some browsing and outputting movies to my tv through hdmi.

    So some things I can definitely live without on a tablet:
    • Data connection like 3G and LTE, really useless for my needs.
    • Cameras, don't really have any need for them.
    • Reading magazines, ebooks, newspapers etc
    • GPS, again kinda useless for me.
    • Lastly, don't really care that much about portability as I will only use it inside the house.



    Now things that are absolutely mandatory for my needs:
    • HDMI out. Its just a must to be able to watch movies on my tv without having to move my 3.5KG laptop around the house.
    • A nice display so I can watch HD movies with subs smoothly while I am in bed(are 7inches really enough for this?).
    • Storage, definitely 16GB onboard and a way to expand the storage like SD cards or USB OTG will do to.


    Now the Asus Google Nexus 7 FHD has really caught my attention since I can get it on a plan for about 80euros over 24 months and not cash out 260euros at once just like that but 2 things really concern me about it.
    Firstly after some research I can see that the slimport which outputs to the tv is really really buggy and need an extra adapter.
    Secondly, I have never ever touched a tablet before so I don't really know how enjoyable it would be watching a movie on 7 inches on a tablet instead of my 17inch laptop. Are 7inches really comfortable for movies? Or is for this cause a 10.1inch tablet is the only way?
    Going on a good 10.1inch one really exceeds my budget. The nexus 10.1 is a whooping 420euros and I think its too much.
    The Asus MeMO Pad FHD 10 is the only 10.1inch device I could find that suits my needs but really lacks some quality in screen and 2 cores on the cpu. Its also 300euros right away.

    Any other suggestions? Should I just go with the nexus 7 or do I have other options for my budget?
