Which Tablet to Choose in 2013?

Since Apple released the first generation iPad in 2010, hundreds of different tablet computers from scores of manufacturers have flooded the market. Deciding which one deserves your hard earned money can be a daunting challenge. With a little research, however, you can find the perfect tablet for your needs and your budget.

How to decide which tablet pc is best

Which Operation System (OS) to choose?

The first consideration to make when choosing a tablet is whether you already have devices within a specific ecosystem. At the moment, Google’s Android and Apple’s IOS are the predominant tablet operating systems, but others include Microsoft’s new Windows 8, Palm’s WebOS, and Amazon’s skinned version of Android. If you already own a device that runs one of these operating systems such as a mobile phone, personal computer, or e-reader, you may want to consider purchasing a tablet that runs the same operating system. This will allow you to use previously purchased applications and programs on your new tablet. Since many people own iPhones, the iPad can be an attractive choice for them.

Personal Requirements and Preferences

Secondly, think about how you intend to use your new tablet. Will this be mainly for internet browsing and social media? If so, pretty much any tablet will suit your needs. Will you use it to consume media such as internet video, streaming music, or digital comic books? In this case, you may want to go with a Kindle Fire HD, as Amazon’s tablet is an excellent delivery system for the content that Amazon sells. Or will you be using it as a laptop replacement to do intensive work? If this is the case, you might think about a Windows 8 tablet, as it can run desktop software, and its sleek keyboard case gives it almost all of the functionality of a powerful laptop.


Third, consider your budget. Windows 8 tablets are incredibly powerful, and new iPads are sleek and beautifully designed, but both can be extremely expensive if you decide on high end models. If you have a very limited budget of $150 or less, you might be tempted to purchase a generic Android tablet. This is inadvisable, though, as their quality and performance tend to be poor, and they provide a frustrating user experience. Instead, consider a gently used tablet, such as an older Asus Transformer or an HP Touchpad. While the Touchpad runs the discontinued WebOS software, with a bit of tenacity, you can upgrade it to Android for a much better experience.

Google Nexus 10

If, after considering all of the above factors, you still are unable to decide which tablet is right for you, I would recommend Google’s Nexus 10. It retails for $399, placing its price at the low end of high performance tablets, and runs the most advanced and stable version of Android, for which there are many thousands of useful applications. Android also has the benefit of being open source software, which allows more flexibility than an iPad. Most noticeably, it has a beautiful, brilliant screen and an extremely powerful processor. The Nexus 10 is simply a joy to use.
