    We got her a pc about ten years ago... that she swore she wanted nothing to do with. Now she complains because she can't get on due to my dad using it more. A tablet would solve her problems. She thought she was not tech savvy but she loves it. I just set her up with a router so she would have wifi access. I can see her spending a lot of time on it including bragging to us kids about what she can do with it.

    $399.99 Nexus 10 16 GB on the Google Play Store.

    Just upgraded from the Motorola Xoom WiFi to this...

    2560x1600 display, 2 Gb ram, OS 4.2, a pure Google/Nexus device.

    Not a big fan of Acer either but the Icnoia actually gets great reviews. I'd never consider another Acer product after I had a bad experience myself.

    No I will not consider any Nexus device. First off I want a 9 or 10. Second I will not buy a tablet without a memory card slot. I would LOVE a Nexus but I will not support them since they dumped memory cards.
    I like to speak with my dollars. Sure a 32GB tablet is noce, but a 32gb + 32gb = 64 gb is even nicer...
    Even though it doesn't have a memory slot, I'm sure the microusb port has host functionality like on the Nexus 7, meaning you can use a USB OTG cable to plug in a flash drive or external hard drive to expand the storage space. Not quite as streamlined as an internal card slot, but the Nexus 10 is hands down the best buy for the price.

    I was thinking the same thing. I'm certain a usb flash drive would work and that would be the perfect compromise.

    Having owned a Viewsonic Gtablet, a Motorola Xoom, an Asus Transformer TF101 and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.......the Nexus 10 is absolutely hands down the best Android tablet you can buy.

    The screen is amazing, the 2 Gb of ram helps the tablet handle many apps with zero lag switching between them.....OS 4.2 is really nice and so on and so on.

    The Motorola Xoom 32GB WiFi model was my primary tablet.....I was initially worried about the lack of an SDCard slot on the Nexus 10. I looked at what I did with the SDCard slot on my Xoom (nothing...just had a 16 GB card sitting in it) and the amount of free space I still had on my internal storage after a year of use.....over 20 gigs free. I have a ton of apps, just not a lot of movies, music and such as I stream most or use cloud storage.

    I almost decided on a 16 GB Nexus 10.....but went with the 32 GB model since I had 32 GB on the Xoom

    Nexus devices do not have SDCard slots...so it's not something they dropped, it's something they never felt was needed.

    $299 with the dock for a refurb???
    Ooohhhh, that's tempting. Not a huge fan of refurbs, but that is an excellent price for the tab I wanted with a dock kicker... Thanks for that tip.

    Stop trying to talk me into the Nexus guys!! hahaha
    I will not will not will not buy a Nexus. Believe me I know all the pros and cons.

    I want a tablet with huge storage space so I can carry my 12GB of music ON THE TABLET AT ALL TIMES.
    It isn't that Google felt the SD CARD slot wasn't NEEDED it is that they can charge a premium for the larger memory sizes. Like Apple. It's $50 more for an extra 16GB... a 16GB SD card is $20. Boom. Extra $30+ minimum in Google's pocket. Obviously I love Google so go google go. But I am protesting no slot by NOT BUYING ONE.
    But Google will convince you that you don't need one. It's obviously working. lol

    Plus they want to drive you to store everything in the cloud.
    WHICH IS FINE. I even have all my Music on Googles Cloud service. But I want it locally. All of it. And I want to put movies on my tablet with DVD Catalyst. Locally.
    And I speak with my dollars. I am big on that.
    I choose to support companies that give us SD Card slots.

    Owe you a beer, my friend. After much hemming and hawing I pulled the trigger on the W00t deal.
    It's just too good to pass up.

    W00t!

    Pere, think you will love it. If I had the $300 I'd be jumping on this deal. It has a 90 warranty, so if there were any problems, you'd definitely know within those 90 days. I have taken advantage of many many refurbished specials (electronics, cameras, power tools, you name it...even vacuum cleaners) and I've never had any problems.
