Is there a reason why I should not buy this tablet right now?

It doesn't have 8GB GDDR5 ram and won't play Killzone.

My advice is to make a blog post about how cats are awesomer than dogs. That way cgood will pick you as a winner, and then use that credit to buy the tablet.


Also, I know being on a budget is your thing and all, but you should consider an apple iPad. It might be more expensive, but they've got quality that can't be beat.

I used that tablet at my job and it sucks. Battery dies kinda quickly, so NO!

Nevermind, done and done. Got the 7" 16 gig Fire HD and a micro hdmi cord. I pan on using it mostly in the house for when I go to the attic and smoke marijuana.

o lol, I was going to say that the only reason you would want the Galaxy Tab 2 over the Kindle Fire HD if you care for the rear facing camera and MicroSD slot. I think you use Amazon a lot so Kindle Fire HD is the best tablet for it as well.


But otherwise, great and smart purchase bro! 


By the way, I hope you have good ventilation when you smoke up there lol

hmmm Im thinking of getting a tablet also but since Im tight on money Ill wait for the new batch of tablets to come out and pick an older model off clearance. Probably try to get the Nexus 7 when then newer one comes out.

the nexus 7 is great (i have one)

I personally wouldnt get a kindle simply because of how locked down it is. If I am spending a few hundred dollars on a computing device, then I'll be damned if I let the manufacturer dictate how I use it. beyond that, the kindle app store is nothing compared to the play store, and since they are both android you can get all of amazon's services on the nexus 7 (minus the instant video at the moment). 

for the most part the n7 has better hardware and better support than the fire hd.

The nexus is good too

But if you compare the specs are still better

I think it depends what you want to use it for. If you are tied down to apple, might as well get an ipad. If not, there are a bunch of alternatives.

What do you want it for? For instance, i have a laptop at home and a tablet i take with me (honestly i hardly use it), but wanted something to have around my living room area without having to grab my laptop every time. I was thinking of getting another tablet just to have, mess around and look stuff up (besides my phone) or whem i have people over. But, i think ive decided to get the new $250 chromebook instead. Its just under 12 inches, so bigger than a tablet and i just want to use it to search online, watch vids, etc. 

There are a bunch of alternatives. Just depends what you want or need

It will be used for around the house stuff mostly, like while doing laundry or cooking dinner. I'm alson interested in rooting it. The specs on it are better than most I had seen in this price range.

After you mentioned Chrome book and I decided to check it out. I would be more interested in it if it just ran android instead... But I could always get a tablet with keyboard.
