    Almost minimally efficient as a browser, but not quite.
    Crappy keyboard.

    Got a Hisense 7 inch tablet a bit over 12 months ago so I could read books & download the local paper while I was overseas. Cost under $A200. Great for showing people photos, useful browser and I download the newspaper every day & take it to work to read. Actually saved money on a subscription. Also download the Economist weekly. Great if you commute or just want the convenience of being able to read magazines on a tablet. I'll probably upgrade in a couple of years. I didn't think I'd have much use for it before I got it, and I probably wouldn't find a full sized one as convenient. All in all a great purchase.

    I agree with you about the iPad. I hate Apple anything and have not owned any Apple product as far as I can tell. I tried using my mom's iPad 3 but it's just incredibly frustrating.
    You're clever. I wanted to buy iPhone 6, but changed my mind.

    I still use an earlier version of Windows on my personal laptop. I use my iPod classic that I bought in 2006, still has a battery life of 7-8 hours. Okay, so set-up the iPad, took some time, and then upgraded it to iOS 8. Downloaded angry birds, iPad should be of some use until I find somebody who appreciates it. :)

    How old is it? Is it Android? Some people swear by Android. I'm a Windows guy.

    I have an Asus Transformer I bought last year at this time. It's fantastic! It's enough to browse the net and even play some game. I brought it with my to Europe and I couldn't imagine spending 3 weeks without checking the internet.

    Buy ASUS Transformer Book T100TA Gray Signature Edition 2 in 1 PC - Microsoft Store

    The best part is the 10 hour battery life.

    the rumors are true

    I've read on Tom's Hardware a few months ago that we would see sub-$100 Windows tablet running full-blown Windows 8.1 before the end of the year.
