Ivan, the iPad is wonderful. I know some will disagree and will prefer the Samsung, Kindle, etc., but it's all personal preference. I do practically everything on my iPad, short of any heavy Excel and Word use outside of the office I need to do (I pull out my laptop for that, which is very rare).

No need to spend the $499 on the iPad Air; I believe the 2nd Gen iPad (the one I have) has dropped to the mid $300's range (and I think Walmart has it for $299).

I agree...I have both the Ipad2 and the Ipad Air....I can't tell one bit of difference between the two. I have had other tablets as well but I prefer the Ipad. I am not an apple homer either....

I forgot to add to your comment about the iPhone. I have the iPhone 5 and I love the ease of syncing between the two. I snap a pic with my phone and within seconds it's on my iPad. I download an app on my iPad, it's on my iPhone. 3 of the 5 kids have iPhones and Facetiming with them is great. When they text me, it will pop up on my iPad if I'm in a meeting at work and I can respond right away.

As for movies, I use my iPad to watch Netflix and have no problems with it whatsoever.

And apple may still be giving away their version of the office package with a new iOS purchase, it includes pages, numbers and keynote. They will open, edit and save word, excel, and PowerPoint docs. They normally run $10 each.

One thing Ds, I don't know if you will find a tablet with speakers powerful enough to hear 2+ floors away...maybe look into a house wide speaker system that can be controlled from a tablet.

Great info...thanks. I hadn't even thought about the 2nd Gen.

I plan on using blue tooth speakers. That is my next learning experience- which one to purchase.

Any particular reason you say that? They have same amount of RAM and the NookHD has arguably a faster processor. Also has larger screen and is lighter device.

Before I rooted, many people online said the NookHD would end up being a better device...although I can't say I have compared. Only notable difference many pointed out was the graphics performance. It doesn't matter to me a lot because I got the NookHD for free from someone wanting to give it away.

I suppose we also only use the device for basics...web browsing, games, apps, etc.

I went with the Jam Classic, and got it for $25 on Black Thursday. It's enough for what I need, mainly use it while in the shower or while working in the yard. Very portable, and good power for it's size, though I guess I need to find something with more power for those really loud moments.

The only problem I have found with the Jam, for what it is, is that it seems to only get about 4 hours of play per charge.

Can get it here for around $26 including S/H.

The first gen n7 has the same amount of ram but you really can not compare the TI OMAP cpu in the Nook to the Tegra 3. It is sort of like saying the displacement of the engine in my Hyundai is the same as my WRX so they should be the same. Don't get me wrong for the money spent a rooted Nook HD is a awesome device and the newest stable builds of kitkat for it make it a great little device. One HUGE thing it has over a N7 as well as you can put a SD card in it for extra storage and it has HDMI out both of which the N7 does not have.

OP, do you really want a tablet? I am not sure that any will meet your demands. Have you thought of alternatives like Chromebooks? http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2453386,00.asp
