Selecting your Tablet then finding your Tablet.
It's not difficult to set basic specifications for your next Tablet PC purchase.
1. Number of Cores
2. Display (The glass)
3. Video Graphics (The Component)
4. Number of Memory Channels
In a word I look for "Responsiveness" when selecting a tablet.
When you Click or Tap on an icon you want to be sure that your electronics springs into action and processes the request quickly.
Responsive computers are much nicer to work with and I'm sure you will agree with me.
It's difficult to say what the best tablet is for you so I'll not try to guess.
I will say this, with my experience waiting for a price drop is like asking for something that the manufacturers don't want.
Waiting for a new technology is only cheating what you could be doing now unless the new technology is coming out this quarter.
The key is to find the tablet you are willing to work with and to explore with.
Number of cores helps with the quickness of the system.
You might find a dual core actually produces a higher frequency output for the CPU but the dual core can handle simultaneously 2 processes while the quad would be 4 thus making the quad more responsive even if the processor speed is lower.
Sometimes Speed vs. Availability to Process is better and other times it is not and can offer additional advantages like, lower current consumption, lower heat ranges which all seem to help batter life.
Expect to spend about $299.00 on your next tablet but be careful you aren't paying for a name or a part of the marketing campaign that says the tablet is great.
I've seen many tablets over the last 3 months that would be nice GPS units on my dashboard but I wouldn't use them to watch a video or work on my remote desktop systems.
Be sure you are happy with your purchase and just don't say it because you feel like you made a mistake.
I've purchased electronics in the past that I regret so don't worry, we all make mistakes.
But, from this day forward you will not make another mistake because you are going to spend time reading about what is available in this Global Economy and you will not restrict your buying to just what the local retailers offer you. I'll also include the national online retailers as well.
I've found other countries have had more selections than the USA in the mobile and tablet markets. The PC markets seems to unchanged.
Where is the best market? Google the device you are looking for and you will see, start with something like.
Quad Core, 2GB DDR3, Retina Display
Tell me who you find.
I have made my selections and found my retailers. Tax, Duty, Import, Price and Shipping still comes out to be $100 or more less than last years technology in the local stores.
Buying your tablet is now open to the "Tablet Super Stores" of the world.
They have talked about this "Global Economy" and they have talked about what could help build our stronger.
Price vs Technology has never been my final bottom line. I have always paid higher for better technology in the USA.
But now I am finding technology from overseas vendors is better than in the USA and cheaper. With that I do all my shopping overseas now.
It's easy to correct for the big box stores. Stop signing contracts with a select few and open the markets like they do electronics overseas. (My opinion)
Other than that, I suggest you search for Allwinner A31 and the Rockchip RK3188 you as the consumer have more than just a few great tablets to look at in the near future.
If you have questions, feel free to ask.
