need a tablet dont know if i should wait

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
a nexus 7 would be perfect to read my college pdf's but the lack of tablet apps scare me. an ipad mini is expensive for a 720p screen (not even)
rumors of ipad 5 being slim and small bezels would be ideal. is there anything else on the market thats really reliable battery wise, ecosystem wise ? i had an asus transformer infinity and the laggy android 4.2 + screen bleed had me going nuts so i re sold. suggestions for an all around college tablet with other media uses ( i need to edit pictures on the go/ store a few books and movies + be able to remote to my pc or macbook pro)

go to a retail store and use one. tell me how 'scary' it is.

i use an hp touchpad with android 4.3 dual boot ubuntu. it makes a great pdf reader and video player/ grooveshark machine. if i don't have my laptop with me boot into ubuntu so that i can take notes.

+1 on the HP Touchpad. You can pick them up pretty cheap these days. They work great and super easy to tweak, overclock, load Android etc. With my foldable BT KB i can do word docs in Picsel office or the other (forget the name). Also another option is to look at a Kindle Fire - they had on them on sale for Dad's and Mom's Day.
