I have to do a bit of airtime for work and am fed up with lugging my 19″ laptop in and out of my hand luggage for entertainment purposes. Can anyone recommend a 7-10 inch tablet just for movies and the odd book, spreadsheet, game, might use it to review fotos etc and some simple editing?
I really like my Lenovo Yoga. The battery life is excellent, the screen is easily good enough for films, it’s got a stand which is useful and the built-in speakers are amazingly good for the size so you can use it for for tunes when you get to your destination.
That Lenvovo Yoga is quite nice, the built in stand is handy. Though it is a few years old now, so stuck with an outdated Android version etc. And I had one that broke after a few years, I’m not convinced about the reliability (probably a knackered battery).
Having had a couple of issues with phones and Android updates I wouldn’t spend much on anything not current any more. Maybe something cheap and old but if I was spending over £100 I’d go for something that’s still supported.
Loads of choice TBH. Even the Amazon Fire tablets are good for the money – OK it’s Amazon “this that advertising” on the screens but they work very well for the money. My wife got a 10″ refurb for £99 for watching video/TV etc.
We have an old Linx 1010B Windows tablet – that’s good too, and works as a laptop if needed.
