      recommend me a tablet based on your user experience

      which one should I buy for reading pdf's, epub's and general browsing? ipad 2, ipad mini, something else?

      I just want a general device, I was talking about the ipad because it's made of aluminum and has scratch resistant glass, I'm looking for best value for the money, so it doesn't have to be the newest of the new

      share your experiences with tablets please

      After trying many tablets and eReaders, I selected the Asus Slider SL-101. This one works best for me because it slides open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, and it supports a USB mouse. I have a hard time typing more than a few words on a touch-screen keyboard, so having a real keyboard was a major buying point for me. ...not to mention that it saves a lot of smudges on the screen.

      Spoiler for A pic of my Slider:

      In my opinion, Apple products are severely overrated. I once tried an iPad in the store and it was nearly impossible to select the correct letters on the keyboard.

      I would recommend iPad 2 over iPad mini if you can afford it. For the uses you are describing having larger screen size is better. Although personally, I once read the Count of Monte Christo as an eBook on my iPhone, and that's one honking big book, and I had no trouble with it, but that might be just me. I actually use my iPhone more often than my IPad 2 for reading and browsing because my iPhone is always with me whereas my iPad is not, also my kids often manage to persuade me (big softie) to use my iPad, so I am left with only my IPhone much of the time while at home.

      Oh has the tablet been upgraded since the iCommandment days? What's wrong with stone, it lasts forever? Though I ought to upgrade to one of those Flintstones stonepecker models - so much faster than chiseling.
