I'm looking to buy a tablet to replace my current laptop. My laptop is outdated and slow and I don't have the technical know-how to get the most out of it, so I'd like something to replace it.
I tend to think that most modern e-readers like the Kindle Fire HD or Nook HD would serve most of my purposes, but they fall short in a lot of respects if I want to basically replace this laptop. I really only need a device with a good e-reading interface, Hulu+ and Crunchyroll, and a basic web browser with or without flash support 90% of the time. I also like the feel and convenience of a small tablet.
But what if I want to, say, play the Pokemon TCG online or LoL or LOTRO? Or what if I need Microsoft Office for something? I feel like most tablets within a reasonable price range seem to fail in anything that isn't basic music, video app, or text-based browser stuff, but I sometimes need that stuff. I'm not asking to play Crysis on high settings, but I'd like the convenience of an e-reader with some of the gaming and other functions of a desktop replacement.
So are there any tablets out there that could pretty much serve my needs without costing almost as much a laptop or desktop that you know? Any suggestions?
