I'll preface this post by saying that I have an IPad 2, 16gb.

I have gotten my money out of it and then some, but nowadays, it is getting slow and buggy. Not sure if it has to do with all the iOS updates or what.  Bought it in 2012.

Amazon sent me an email saying that they are offering Prime members $50 off a Kindle Fire HDX 7' 64 gb ($259 after the markdown), which is pretty much half the price you'd pay for an IPad Air.

I know several people on here have tablets as well, and I was wondering if y'all could give me any feedback on tablets that y'all have used or owned. It will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm no expert. Bought dad a fire for Christmas and it's really directed towards reading books. If I were buying one if get the surface. I've played around on a buddy's and it's pretty neat. iPads are too expensive

I have a Samsung 10.1 and its a great netbook replacement. Storage is a non factor for me as I keep nothing on it.

I've got a Google Nexus 7. I like it a lot, screen could be a bit bigger. Bought my gf a Fire and test drove it. Definitely wasn't for me.

You can save a little money most of the time by going the Samsung or even Asus route. Both are fine tablets. I wouldn't settle for anything less unless you are buying for a young one who just needs something to play with.

I have owned an iPad 2, nexus 7, now the iPad mini.

The iPad just seems better to me. I have also went from an iPhone 4 to a s3 back to an iPhone 5s.

Every time I leave apple I come back.

Hope this helps...

I have a Kindle Fire HDX 7.  I only use it to read books.  So I am no help unless you are looking for some good books to read.

I have worked with and used all three types extensively being an IT Admin.  (iOS, Android, Windows)

My latest recommendation would be to go for a Windows Tablet.  Surface RT are a bargain for what you get. (USB port, functional office suite)  They clearly have the edge in the business world, but if it is for personal use, the iPad and Android are both useful and have a larger app pool to choose from.

Totally forgot about my Lenovo work tablet. It runs on Windows 8 and I absolutely hate it. Wish I could trade screen size of work tablet with Android OS on my Nexus.  Never messed with Apple so that's up to you, the Kindle was very limiting.

I am torn on the surface rt. It can't really decide what it wants to be.

Is it a tablet or a really under powered laptop with not very many apps. Don't get me wrong, I love windows, just not sold on the RT...

I still think single purpose devices have it's place in this world. (e.g. tablet for convenience, laptop for work)
In some instances using a pad for work does make sense, like consuming data and limited input.
