So, I'm looking to buy a tablet because I need something that supports a stylus for free-style writing (like notes), D&D applications, and .pdf files (more D&D stuff). I'd also like it to support a handful of google play games I enjoy. (Arcade-like things)

 

My budget for the new tablet is:

$100 - $200 (can stretch if needbe)

What are the primary uses for this tablet (IE: email, web browsing, playing games, etc)?

What Operating System are you used to or would prefer if any (leave blank if you're unsure)?

Either Android or Windows, preferably....

How big of a screen would you want?

7" - 10"

Will this tablet be for college, work, home etc?

D&D/Home/Light Gaming & Reading

Do you want to be able to do two things at once, or one thing at a time?

Two things at once... D&D requires quite a bit

Do you want USB ports to plugin flash drives?

Not required.... just support for SD or Micro SD cards

 

 

Extra notes:

I do not want a keyboard, and I want no Microsoft Office subscriptions, at all. No Anti-virus subs either. Oh, and no Apple products

With the price range and functionality you require. I am unable to find anything I'd feel comfortable mentioning.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Just curious Ktanaqui, did you find anything?



I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 and i had the Tab 3 7.0 before this one. I gave it to my son when I got the new one and they both run great!! Samsung products are always good quality anyways. The Tab 3 even got dropped in a river. Thrown outside and left in the rain for a couple hours. Dropped MULTIPLE times and it still ran fine and still does actually. I paid like $160-$170 for them and they were very much worth the price. Hope this helps!! ☺
