I'm pondering getting a tablet. Anybody have any recommendations, either pro or con? I like my Samsung laptop and smartphone so I've been looking at their stuff...

ETA: Oh, and I really wouldn't want to spend much more than $300 or so.

It's gonna be tough to find something decent for $300 unless you check Craig's List or Ebay. You could probably get an ipad 1 or 2 for about that much and they're pretty decent. The best as far as competition is the Galaxy, and their about $600 at best buy. Acer Iconia is about $400 and they're pretty good value....

All this to say, it really depends on how much your willing to spend, or how hard your willing to look. lol
I'm not a huge fan of Apple products, hence focusing on Android stuff... BB has a Galaxy Tab 2 7in for $250 but it's only 8MB... is that enough?
It really depends on what you'd use it for, but I have a Toshiba 10inch with 16 GB and that suits me just fine. The more memory you get the more expensive it gets.

The galaxy tabs are awesome though, and I think you mean GB (if it was MB it's totally not worth it! lol)
LOL, yes, definitely GB. I was thinking I would probably want at least 16, but that was just my gut. Plus I think 7 inches might be too small for my tastes. 10 might be too big, though...

*ponders*

Oh well. I'm happy to wait. I really just want one because it's pretty and shiny... no real need :)
You could probably get a refurbished tablet for good money and more GB! I know they have refurbished Acers 16GB for about 300...
I was looking at refurbished... I've always gotten stuff new in the past but as long as wherever had a good warranty/return policy I suppose it would be OK :)
Yeah, my Toshiba is refurbished and I got it for 250, plus it's a 10 and 16GB... so yeah, really good value considering. I usually go new myself, but my friend Matt has been teaching me the ways of saving my money. lol
Cool, thanks :) I've been focusing on BB 'cause I have their credit card and I like no-interest financing, but more options = always good.

And yes, you must use the power of JR responsibly, for good instead of evil and all that...
No prob! :) Options are always fun! :D

Hee hee! I kinda like using him for evil. *evil grin*
Actually I'm perfectly OK with using him for evil... good... using him for anything, really...
Honestly, I adore my Nook tablet. Android OS and SO MANY BOOKS. But I do mostly use mine for reading, Netflix, and Angry Birds, so I really don't know how much it can handle.
I have one of the second gen (I think) Nooks with the e-ink and touch-screen bottom, and I like it... I've thought about upgrading to one of the newer models, but I think I might want something a little more powerful...
