    Is it worth getting the LT for $80 or is it better to spend $130 for the Pro? It's only $50 extra but looking at it another way, the Pro costs 60% more.

    If it was a gift for a high school or college student, it would be easy to justify the extra cost for the Pro. However, the two people I'm thinking of are
    1. a 10 year old who currently shares a 3 year old family computer
    2. a 50+ non-techie who only uses the computer for email and web
    They are in two different households, so you can answer differently for the two cases if you like.

    Also, I would set up email etc for the older relative (the 10 year old probably needs no help ) so I'm more concerned about the daily user experience, not configuration. Is the LT fast enough for someone who is used to a laggy windoze machine? Does the slightly bigger screen of the Pro make a real difference in daily use?

    If the choice was to buy one of them a Pro, or buy them each an LT, would that change your answer?

    Thanks for any first-hand feedback.

    For that extra $50 you are getting a vastly superior screen, faster processor, more storage, and a newer OS. And much better battery life (if I remember correctly, battery life on the Pro is twice what it is on the LT).

    And yes, the higher resolution Screen does make a difference. Also it has better viewing angles and colors.

    I have both. You can tell the difference between the two. I have the lt to my 8 year old to use on car trips. She loves it. The other one is way better. I have been thinking about getting a new n7 but don't know if it's worth it. Both work fine though. So if you want to get two and they are not for you. The lt is fine.
