My dad would like to get a tablet. Our budge is $100.00 - $500.00, with an emphasis on the $200.00 - $400.00 range. My dad is getting older, so he needs something easy to use, with good options for adjusting the size of things or zooming in. He would like something that has good performance. As an experienced computer user I'm adding that it should be a little future proofed. So here are the minimum specs we are considering: 1. Quad core processor 2. 1 gig RAM 3. 16 gig memory 4. Expandability 5. 1280x800 6. Good wireless strength 7. 9" screen 8. Newer builds of the OS, such as Android 4.0 rather than 3.0 9. Good build quality and good quality overall My dad will mostly be using this to browse the web, check email, maybe look at newspapers, magazines or books. He may watch movies or videos on it. I think he should also have a good office program with a spreadsheet built in so he can journal and keep track of finances. We spent a few hours at NewEgg tonight and he liked the looks of the Asus 700T Transformer 10.1" He is also interested in upping the budget for a Windows 8 tablet. But he's hesitant about this. So I had a brilliant idea. I thought I could here and ask the experts here! Here are my questions: Are the more expensive Windows 8 tablets worth the extra $100.00 or so? What is the best OS for him? Android, Windows 8, something else? Considering what I have said here, what tablet would you recommend for him? Why? I really appreciate your help on this!
