Don’t buy cheap tablets. Stick with brand names.Most cheap pads don’t come with Google Play (App Store) and don’t get updates – Again, avoid these.

Most tablets have a microSD slot to expand memory – The Apple iPad family does not.
What about Windows 8 tablets? The RT is great with office preinstalled. However, you may want to wait for Windows 8 pro early next year.
Don’t buy if the processor is below 2Ghz (The processor needs to be a dual core or better) and memory (RAM) should be 2Gb or more. Most laptops are door busters and often are very slow and limited. Even 2Gb is too little RAM in today’s world.
Check to see if the memory is upgradeable. Then make the decision.
