Depends on the tablet and what you wanted to do. Some tablets don't have flash which means some websites wont work. iPad is one of such problems!

It would be cool if I could have something that would connect to the internet.

It's quiet at work at the moment DQ, I'll do some research for you now.

Basic requirements for you are internet connection capability and eBooks?

Amazon Kindle $139
Display: 6” low-end resolution
Wi-Fi: Yes

The kindle can connect to sync books and surf Wikipedia via the 3G (phone) network when in reception zones. However to surf the web you will need to be connected via Wi-Fi.

Galaxy Tab 10.1 $569
Display: 10.1” high resolution
Wi-Fi: Yes

Galaxy does not have 3G capability. So it will rely on Wi-Fi connection to update and utilise web surfing or download eBooks.

iPad2 $579
Display: 9.7” high resolution
WiFi: Yes
3G: Yes available in higher model

Both the Galaxy and iPad have the ability to download application and have other uses. The Kindle is more of a specific eBooks device with the added ability to surf the web.

As far as user reviews go, the Kindle is excellent at eBook use, sufficient at websurfing. The Galaxy and iPad excel at iBooks, web surfing and other tasks that may be required in the future.

The price difference is quite high, mainly because of the possible expansions and tasks the high end tablets can perform against the specifically made eBook Kindle.

If it were me, I would purchase an iPad2 because it has more functions and capabilities as opposed to the Kindle. Resale value will held higher with the iPad as well.

Good luck DQ :)

Wow! Thanks for looking that up for me, Banicks. $579 is a bit beyond my budget right now. I don't HAVE to have wi fi but I thought it would be nice to be able to take the forum with me wherever I go. lol

I think that's Australian pricing though. Double check with Apple store for US prices :)

I would only get the Kindle Fire to go online with if you go with kindle. The other ones are black and white and mine is just too slow to do anything useful on the internet. I think it's a great deal at 199 and you can play Angry Birds on it too.
