I just sold the first tablet I ever owned. Got $100 for it, which is pretty amazing, considering that that's what I paid for it 3 years ago (on contract).

So I submit that that was the best tablet for my money.

For those with a Nexus 7, is there a good application out there to view MS Office files? I'm guessing there's a few options out there, so what do you recommend?

Quick Office I'd what I've used. It will view and edit files. It used to work with almost every cloud storage provider, but is now limited to just Google Drive since being acquired by Google.

It's free now at least so give it a shot.

The Surface Pro 2 is amazing but comparing it to traditional tablets isn't an apples to apples thing. It has a tablet form-factor but the Surface Pro 2 is just a Windows 8 laptop crammed into a tablet, which is why it's so expensive compared to them.

And if it was made by Apple (in Rivendell of course, by elves) it would be considered the greatest thing in the history of man and well worth the price... just sayin...

I just got a Kindle Fire HDX. It's pretty sweet for what I need it for. Which is basically an e-reader, comic reader, and something to play the occasional game on to kill some time. I like the screen a lot more than the Ipad, and it's a lot cheaper.

I've been mulling that over, molsen. I'm trying to decide if I want a full-fledged laptop in tablet form (Surface Pro) or just need a tablet for things like books, web browsing, and such on the go. I'd love to hear impressions once you've used it for a bit.

Actually posting on it now... browser isn't great but it runs the Android app system so you can get chrome for it. If you already have books on your account they are featured in the front screen as soon as you turn it on. It has your account preloaded. I have been reading Frank Miller's Batman Returns on it and it looks pretty good on the Comicat app.

If you end up wanting something for the basics this is a great machine.

Looking at replacing my 3yr old Asus netbook (thanks for all the years of service),my bulky 4yr old Medion desktop and a POS HP laptop I bought a few years back that has given me almost as many problems as my last girl.
Seriously considering a 128gb Surface Pro 2 and a a docking station. Probably gonna set me back $1,500 when all is said and done after the detachable keyboard and warranty, but it would be nice to have just one device

My wife ended up getting the 2013 Nexus 7 and it's pretty sweet. I've been thinking about getting one for myself, but I also have seen some people say some pretty good things about the Dell Venue 8 Pro. Comes with full Windows 8.1 (not RT), Microsoft Office, and the 64GB version is $319 on amazon.com.
