Why did I wait to buy this amazing tablet?
10 September 2014
The first tablet I dipped my toe in the water with was an Acer Iconia. I chose Acer because I have used their laptops and have always been happy with them, so it was for my peace of mind I chose another Acer for a tablet. However once owned I was delighted with it but never used it much, the 7" was too small for me, some of the things I wanted to use it for where not easy to see or navigate, so in the drawer it went and stayed.
However I never got rid of the wanting I had for a tablet, my laptop, which I was so amazed at after ditching the old desktop years ago, seemed bulky now and took up too much room, so I went on the hunt for exactly what I wanted, a tablet big enough to see and use with ease yet powerful enough, and affordable. I may say here, me and techy stuff are like oil and water, a 60 year old woman who has no idea what I am doing other than pressing the on off button, I was daunted and lost. I saw this and saved it on my wish list, and kept coming back to look and look, until I took the plunge. it was calling to me almost, so I ordered it.
It arrived the next day and blimey, was I impressed. It set itself up for me, all I needed to do was input my router password and there it was, a shiny, big, really clever tablet, and I was in love with it.
I have had it 3 days now, and I can do everything my laptop does for me. The apps are easy to navigate, easy to see, and so easy to use now. You do however need a stand or a standing cover, it is a bit heavy if you are watching something on it, and you will, the graphics on films and videos are superb, the sound is lovely, and the front facing speakers really are a surround delight.
I am still learning the bones of it but to be honest, I dont need half the stuff it is packed with, so maybe I never will discover what they do, but if I need it, I know I could probably find it there.
I have just cleaned and checked my laptop, now I am going to put it away, I dont need it now, I have my favourite ever bit of tech, and I dont think I will ever fall out of love with it.
If you are dithering, as I was, go for it, it has been likened to, or surpassed the Apple brands, and going by those who know about these things, its a winner for them too.
Had this a few weeks now, still in love with it, I now know what the apps do, I installed netfix as amazons films will not play on this nor will sky go, but apart from those two things, nothing has stopped me doing or watching whatever I want. Laptop still still in the cupboard its just there as backup. Highly recommended tablet.
