Which tablet to buy?
Posted on 2014-02-09
I need to pick your brains. I'm looking for advice rather than reviews and comparisons on tablets.
We've already got an ipad in the household and I personally have an android galaxy s2 phone.
I'm looking at the windows (surface pro, asus t100 etc) and android (galaxy tab, note (2014) etc) range of tablets.
Price range is the $600 AUD hence the models I've mentioned.
So where am I stuck? Well I'm a fairly active expert on EE and want to be able to do as much as possible without having to go to my laptop (win 8.1, dell xps 8gb RAM). For example, on windows I can debug websites with browser dev tools as well as being able to write macros for Excel.
I know I can remote over my laptop using Teamviewer or LogMeIn etc but if someone knew of a better way or had another suggestion, that's why I'm asking the question :)
I can get flash to work on the android so that's not a sticking point. I've also got a 2 year old son.... so is there more to satisfy that side of things on android?
Is Android more tablet friendly that window 8.1 (or RT)??
I'm wondering if there's anything I've missed, like is the touch sensitivity/accuracy better on android as I get the impression it should be?
My thoughts so far are that the galaxy note (2014) may be overkill with such a huge resolution but is it worth the different to buy rather than the galaxy tab (or nexus).
- front and rear cameras, front good enough for skype etc and rear good enough for photos
- Battery life
- expandable storage (SD etc)
- HDMI output?
Looking for someone to share their experience maybe going through a similar process.
