This is a gadget I am interested in. I'm basically looking for something that can be a couch/laying in bed PC. Here's some things I would like to do:
General internet browsing.
Youtube/videos. Easiest way to show friends videos, or watch them on the couch instead of my desk.
Hold/play my music collection.
Pull up gamefaqs or other walkthroughs away from my PC, in my living room.
Run gmail chat.
I don't need 3G/4G (don't some of them have that?), this would be strictly for around the house use. I have my phone if I need to get on the web while I'm out and about.
I guess they have games? Are games on tablets any good? Can't say the idea appeals to me since I have PC/xbox/DS/etc. to play on, but I don't know a lot about it. I did play some Need for Speed game on a demo unit in Office Max the other day, it was kind of cool.
I haven't really looked through them yet, but I do notice the price range varies pretty widely. Some are in the high $100s, and ipads/xoom/etc are ~$500 What does paying more money get me? What specs do I need to look at?
