    Let's talk about "Tablets" for a minute...

    For some reason I'm getting a urge to buy a Tablet... I have some friends that love theirs and I have other friends that have bought tablets and never use them.

    So... what do you niketalk members think about Tablets?

    1. How many of you guys have tablets?

    2. If you have a tablet... what do you mostly use it for...?

    3. Which Tablet gives you the best "Bang for your Buck"?

    4. How many of you guys think tablets are a wastes of money if you already have a Computer/Laptop and a Smart Phone?

    Tablets are like a cellphone, except you can't upgrade them every few years.

    I have an ipad, mainly use it to watch videos/movies while running on the treadmill. I also upload certain workout on it like P90X vids and use it when working out outdoors.

    That's probably about 90% use of my tablet, the other 10% is watching movies via Netflix, HBO GO, etc... and reading comic books and doing sketches when bored/have free time.

    Got my ipad2 that i basically just use for pr0n. Have a laptop that i download music on and normal file usage. Phone for the daily use.

    The tablet is a cool convenience really. Leave it on the coffee table for people to pick up and check stuff real quick. It isn't connected to my imessage or anything and i surf for pr0n on incognito. No virus worries on it is nice.

    I really like the microsoft surface pro and i think that would be a great laptop replacement

    You can upgrade a tablet with certain carriers. I know AT&T allows it.

    You can upgrade your tablet with any carrier.
    All carriers are straying away from contracts now.
    So If you are still in one, you can upgrade when 22 months hits,
    Or if you are not in one you can upgrade when the payment threshold/device has been paid off

    I was in costco and the microsoft surface is so expensive. Do they sell a decent amount? If i'm going to spend over $1000, I might as well get a laptop.

    I have a couple iPads. One my kids play games on and watch movies, the second is my own iPad mini that I usually only use when trying to cop shoes online... Other than that it collects dust.
