I wasn't ready to do the iPad due to the cost. After searching around based on reviews and prices, I thought this was a good choice. So far, I am very pleased and the tablet meets my needs. Weight I wish it was a little lighter, but it compares to other tablets in regards to weight. I tend to use it at home though. I take it out of the house when I need t for when I am at meetings by using the keyboard case I bought for it. That works great! App Availability I have tons of apps, and I have had been exploring with downloading some TV series. It's nice to be able to just click and download something to watch. I am not a huge movie or TV fan, so it's nice to be able to pick what I am interesting in and watch it when I feel like it. I think the screen clarity for movies/ TV could be better but is sufficient for me. The screen is otherwise fine for the other apps and games. Design Sleek, shiny, attractive. A little heavy but not really a problem. The screen is pretty and has been resistant to scratches. Durability It seems fine, and I am comfortable sharing it with my ten year old. It seems study and well made. I have not had any issues with scratches, cracking, or other hardware issues. It still looks brand new to me.
