Hey nerds, I want to buy a tablet for my 10 year old daughter this Christmas and know nada about them. I really dont want to spend over $200 but will go up to $250 if need be. She surfs the web, plays little app type games, reads books and takes and edits pic/vids for youtube.
Any suggestions would be great. Im looking at the new, non HD Kindle fire but dont like the idea of being locked into a Amazon Only type relationship.
Thanks a bunch.

Did you do a good chunk of due diligence on that Nexus 7 or was it a see/buy type blind purchase? Looks like you and I are in the same boat. I'll take a gander at it on Amazon. Thanks.

Nexus 7 is out of my budget range. Thanks anyway. Galaxy Tab 2 is more my speed but still in that "above budget" bracket. I really want to keep it in the >$200-$225 turn key range other than a protective skin.

Ot but has anyone actually ordered a "used" anything off Amazon? I'm sure its all certified refurb stuff but I just cant see spending $$$ on something used, sight-unseen.
I guess I could be talked into buying a used item if I had some way of making sure it was worth the fuss of not knowing its condition.

I have a friend who works for Google and he sent to me. The price is only 199 for the 8GB. and you can always use cloud storage.
a few at best Buy ........
Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 Tablet with 8GB Memory A2107 - 59346799 - Best Buy only 512 in the ram a little low IMO
Acer Iconia Tablet with 16GB Memory A200-10G16U - Best Buy looks like a good deal It might not be the latest model but they change every 6 months
