Weighing the iPad against everything else
I initially was headed straight for the iPad, but then I started wondering if I could find something cheaper.
I'm signed up for various price discount alerts between now and Black Friday. There's a Galaxy Tab 2 deal right now for $300 plus free shipping. But I'm still weighing functionality vs. price. I agree that battery life and processor are key for our purposes.
I also want to minimize taking on additional fees, such as a data plan or a new movie streaming vendor.
