    Those of you with tablets

    Can someone recommend a good tablet.  Preferably one that is not too complicated but has the ability to connect a keyboard and has the flexibility of taking quick notes or sitting down and writing something lengthy.

    Google Nexus 7 is a really nice affordable tablet. … evancerank

    It runs Android and has all types of additional accessories you can purchase for it. There are also a lot of nice cases that include space for a keyboard.

    For example: … B009WSCW4S

    Basically, you are either going to get an Android or an Apple (iPad) system. As far as I know, most tablets run Android. You'll have to go to a store and play with them yourself...see what you like. Most any Android tablet and iPads have the ability to link a bluetooth keyboard. I have a iPad because I like how easy it is to use and its reliability and quality. Android doesn't make much sense to me.

    I honestly wouldn't recommend a tablet for writing anything lengthy. Tablets are best used for games and general web browsing. Though, I wouldn't recommend a laptop either. You might consider going with a netbook. They're cheaper and smaller than laptops, and more like a real computer (keyboard/desktop) than a tablet.

    Couple of things to consider: 1. Price, 2. size and 3. OS - operating system & Apps, 5. Accessories.

    1. Price. Apple iPads can be expensive compared to the Android tablets from Asus, Samsung LG etc.
    2. Size range from 7in. e.g. Nexus 7, 8in. e.g. Samsung Note 8, 10.1, 12, Tad 4, LG G Pad. 3. iOS or Android. That is the question. If you consider apps into the picture iOS apps are still a little better than Android apps. 5. Accessories e.g. keyboard, is a little better for iPads than Android tablets - you will potentially see all lot more options for iOS iPads.

    A lot to think about but better to go to the store and try them all out.

    So if we consider your criterias:
    Not too complicate: iPad
    Ability to connect to keyboard: Both but iPad will have a little more option
    Flexibility of taking quick notes: Both
    Writing lengthy documents: Both - but iPad may have a slight edge

    Also consider screen resolution and battery life.

    Taking all these into consideration and the premiss that tablets are designed for content consumption e.g. web surfing, watching movies, and short response to emails etc.

    If you do have a need for writing longer documents I would go for a thin notebook of the kind like an MacBook Air but you are than onto another price category.

    If you are ok with Windows based products you can also look at the MS Slate products. Integration with MS Outlook is great but it's an MS product...
