"A great device for the entire family!"4.5 starson by Lee Koo (ADMIN)
Pros: User friendly interface, great battery life, abundance of apps
Cons: Too expensive to buy one for each member of the family. Wish it had the Retina display, oh well, maybe when the new version comes out.
Summary: Not really a gadget that is necessary, but a great to have! Definitely not a laptop or PC replacement, but a well rounded entertainment device for my entire family to enjoy. With the abundance of apps, the kids use it for educational apps, watch movies on Netflix, and play games. My wife uses it to surf the Web, reference recipes, read ebooks and news, and use it for Facebook. I use it to play games, surf the web, check emails, and watch YouTube. It's a great device to bring on short vacation, especially when we are packing light.Forgot to mention that while Adobe flash would be nice to have on the device, I hardly ever use it. If the Website is flash based, I just move on, if the site was that important to me, I would just go to my PC for it. Not a big deal.
It's one of those things that you would just kick back on the couch and use for simple task without the fuss of pulling out the laptop or going to your PC to use. Since I bought this device, I have cut down my use of my PC in half, which is great since I spend most of my work day on a PC.
Overall I love it! I wish it were in HD, but I'm satisfied for what it is now. I definitely got my money's worth on this device!
