What about a Asus Transformer? Get a Dock for it like a small Notebook and your good to go. I get great battery Life with mine. Also NTFS Support with there 2 USB's is just awesome. There custom Roms support are great on XDA.
Let's not forget, Asus Solid.

iPad 4. Good battery life, great display, powerful SoC. Possibly too expensive though?

For the OP, I'd recommend the Nexus 7. The specs + performance/price are incredible.

That said, the best of the best is Ipad 3 or 4. Undisputed king. You're a college kid so this may not be in your price range, but the combination of the screen, the apps, and the CPU/GPU of these devices is, at least in my opinion, unbeatable. I have no horse in this race, and speaking as a relatively powerful tablet user, I find NO difference between iOS and Android. Both are good and both get the job done. All the other poop about unlocking, rooting, etc is all meaningless to me. I want my tablet to surf the net, consume content during travel, and allow me to edit .docx docs/excel spreadsheets.

I don't think you need 2GB of ram, I think you're just telling yourself that.

Apple iPad 4 Wi-Fi + Cellular
Samsung Ativ Tab
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 N8010

If you absolutely have to have the RAM, be prepared to spend the $.
That said, this Fry's ad looks like pricing error, but you can try either in store or price matching to another Best Buy (or something).

yeah I've taken notice of that, maybe it's just me thinking wrong about the lower amount of ram. These tablet look great and all, but they're not what I'm looking for, more than I really need from a tablet ;D thanks though

I recently bought a new laptop, so I don't really need anything that would cost me more money because it could behave like one tongue.gif It does look like a good product though, thanks smile.gif

too expensive indeed, not fund of the ways of Apple to make money roll from our pockets ;D all those new accessories/docks and what not...makes me shiver. I do know its performance is only matched by not even a hand full of other tablets, but it's not what I'm looking for. i'd even be scared to drop/break it tbh.

You might be totally right about the ram. I'm used to using loads of ram and had issues on my iPod Touch 2nd gen with ram usage (256Mb I believe). It's not that I leave unecessary things on (I even tend to play around with things just to increase performance). I believe the Nexus 7 might be a better choice than I thought biggrin.gif, I've brought an iPad mini and a Nexus 7 together in class and we've compared pros and cons. The iPad mini was a disgrace haha, but the Nexus 7 actually surprised me. I think I've found my tablet ;D. The ram worries me a bit though...

Thanks again for the replies guys, appreciated! Rep given where suited smile.gif

I'd recommend the Asus TF300 with dock. I think you should investigate the tablet market more. for a 10incher the nexus 10 is probably the best price out there. Ipads are a great choice as all the apps on there are normally well finished and work smoothly. Have you considered looking at an older generation? The Ipad 2 is still great.

The reason i recommend the Asus is:

- Tegra 3 cpu (one of the top cpus out there, same as being using in Microsoft's Surface.)
- Dock - Extra battery life (mine lasts a few days easily), keyboard and mouse (sometimes websites arent built for touch and you just want a mouse), and USB ports. These make most jobs very easy.
- ENOUGH Ram. - This is Android, not windows. mobile device OSes are built to have a smaller footprint, the only reason some now have 2GB is to make it a "Better" model. The only benfit is in really high end games, of which there are about 3.
- OS Support - very few tablet makers apart from Apple seem to keep their tablets up to date, Asus do a reasonable job of getting newer Android versions out there.
- Apps - this is more of an Android thing, but submitting an app is so easy you can find one to do almost anything. I usually think, "It'd be good if I could do 'this' with my tablet" and then look on the Play store to find someone has already built it. This isn't as common on the IOS and Windows stores.

The TF300 would be a fine choice indeed, but it's priced at €700 in my region for te 64Gb version with a docking station... that's way too much for me hehe. The less secondary memory versions lie around 500-600, still way too much.

Btw, thanks for pointing out that the apps are really satisfying smile.gif great to hear. I'm not a big windows user btw, I mainly use ubuntu /linux distrib. I'm more than aware that mobile Os's clearly don't need as much resources as a normal OS would (that would be pretty insane). I just can't think of 1Gb being enough biggrin.gif

I've read about a 32Gb 3g Nexus 7 version for the same price as the the first 16Gb version, which sounds really interesting, since I will need that 32Gb. Does anyone know about 64Gb Nexus 7 versions? or a 32Gb version with SD possibilities ~edit: scratch that, just read on some reviews/talk pages that Google prefer a non-extendable/uniform storage environment for some reaons like more people using cloud services, less issues between storage types, etc.

FYI TF300 has memory slots, but you did say even the cheaper ones were out of your range.

I spoke to a friend yesterday and he said his nexus 7 was great, and the size looks very usable.

Nexus 7s do not have SD card slots, I believe this may have something to do with saving money, They are currently only available in 32gb and 16gb, you might still be able to find the 8GB version about, but i doubt that's much use to you.

I've also not heard of 3G versions?

Yup the memory slots are quite a + for tablets. Google either wanted to save money or they did it for protection of a user's data (including errors and incompatibility issues between data formats, not sure which ones though). Oh about the 3g, I'm not really sure..some sites say the new 32Gb also comes with 3g available as an option (might be bad sources), for example: the lamest google search ever. These sources seem to confirm that a 3g model is coming up before the endof this month smile.gif.

I know I said 'price doesn't matter', but if I can save like €300-400 for only an extra of 32Gb memory, I definitely will. That's quite a lot of money...even for a dock and +32Gb included.The nexus 7 costs about €250 here. I won't buy the current models, since I read about the 3g and 32Gb tongue.gif first waiting for some more news.

During the iPad mini | Nexus comparison, the Nexus 7 was (like your friend says) very smooth to use. You can hold it in one hand and you can easily type when holding it with two hands without having to reach out for the middle 'keys'. Might sound a bit lazy, but it does increase throughput tongue.gif

I second getting one of the transformers, even if it's 16GB (unless you plan on dual booting linux and run a full-sized setup there, maybe 32GB), especially for the dual SD and full-sized USB.
2x 64GB in mine biggrin.gif (got in the $40 deal at radio shack).

2x64Gb sounds really great, but then I had a look at Asus' website and I lol'd when reading 'extra SD slot(s) and extended battery life with the docking station". What if I told you I don't want a dock. ohno-smiley.gif hehe

I would use my brand new laptop if I could for everything I want to do on a tablet/phone, but I want a quick helping device without stuff like dockings to type with etc. If they would bring out a cute little dock thingy with slots for SD's and USB's it would truly make me doubt about this one. But I don't want something that goes up in price just to end up as a almost-there-but-still-not-a-laptop device rolleyes.gif.

You might say 'hey you never said you wouldn't want a dock', well, you're totally right. That's because I truly didn't know anything about tablets/the tablet market until I started this thread biggrin.gif If I did not have an awesome laptop, the transformer would be no brainer.
