    Hello there everyone.

    After much duress I was finally able to replace my Laptop, but now I'm looking to buy my very first tablet. The only problem is I haven't the slightest idea where to start looking.

    The only requirements I really have are that it runs Android OS (for the apps I intend to use) and that SD cards of some sort can be used with it.

    I plan to use it mainly for studying with a few apps as well as for work, but they're nothing one could consider intensive so it wouldn't have to be a high spec tablet.

    In terms of budget the ideal price would be around $250, but that's about it. I don't know if there are any good Android tablets around the price range, but if anyone has a suggestion it's more than welcome. :)

    If you happen to live in the Phoenix area, I'm selling mine on Craigslist.
