First tablet - recommendations?

Post by Ambient Noise » 10 Apr 2019, 22:36

Currently I use a laptop read and do other things on the go. It's an old one (10+ years old IIRC) and starting to show its age. I was thinking of getting a new laptop, but considering a tablet now instead. Mostly for the ease of reading and doing reviews when I'm not at home. I'm on a budget, though, so I can't afford anything fancy. Any recommendations for a tablet for a first-time user?

I'm in the same boat as you and would love a recommendation as well. Have thought about it for months as I love the idea of being able to do the reviews wherever I am without the chunky laptop which no matter the type, I heavy. Although, another possibility is one of the chrome books. They are more portable and are less expensive than a new laptop. Be warned though, it does not come with a lot of space but you can store everything online now so its still a good option for writers.

Do the chromebooks have any trouble with USB drives? I have several drives with writing and other things on them, and I like having another copy i can access even if I have no Internet connection.

They have no issues with usb drives, most come with at least one and others have two. Always check the description before buying, they will have a description of how many slots they have.
