Need a new "device" (that's what they now call anything and everything from smartphones to tablets to computers)? If the device will be used for doing schoolwork, I'll give you a brief tip. While iPads and Android tablets are great devices for consuming media and checking email, they are not ready for "prime time" when it comes to preparing documents, research, etc., --for that you need something like a "notebook computer." I am not paid to recommend any product, but from personal experience I can recommend the ultrabooks (HP+Intel) as the way to go. For $700 or so, one can buy a light, fast, ultrabook made by HP with full keyboard, solid state drive AND 500 GB hard drive, Windows 7 64-bit, and Office starter (Word, Excel)-- (check out sales specials at BestBuy and elsewhere including on the HP website).
When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do? -- John Maynard Keynes
