Hi all,

I've been out of the tablet game for awhile. But I'm tired of sitting at my PC so much and I need a tablet to read and annotate PDF files. I looked at dedicated tablets like the Onyx Boox, but those are pretty expensive and not worth it to me.

My needs are simple. I want a good screen and a lightish weight. Enough RAM to get things done. I'm not worried at all about storage space. Wifi only is fine. It must work well with Dropbox.

My previous tablet was an Ipad mini (I used the Goodreader app for annotation) but my daughter stole it from me and cracked the screen. So it's hers now. But the mini is too small for my ageing eyes. I'd prefer something in the 9" range.

The current Ipad (base model) is on sale for $250 at BB. But I'm wondering if there is anything cheaper/better. Android is just fine with me - I have a Pixel 3 after all.

Thanks!

The only one I would probably look at is the S5E but even then I think the Ipad equivalent will be a much more polished product.

Thanks, that's the impression I've gotten from looking at reviews. I wonder why no one has come up with a good budget-to-midrange Android tablet. The S5E seems like the best alternative if I want to step up in price/performance a bit. But the base Ipad is probaby enough for my needs.
