I have been thinking about getting a new tablet. The Acer A100 I have just doesn't have the battery life I want and it is old and can't be upgraded. But I'm wondering which one to get. I do NOT want to spend lots of $$$ on one, but want one with good battery life and speed. I'm looking at the Nexus or even the iPad Mini (probably refurbished to keep the cost down). In a departure, I have even looked at the Windows 8.1 tablets. One of my favorite programs on ANY platform is Microsoft OneNote and I notice that the Windows tablets come with Office installed which would give me that excellent program in its native format. More as i look to change places.
