Hey folks! So it's been four and a half years since I bought my first own computer- a Dell Inspiron 1525. Fantastic machine, still going well today and holding it's own, though the USB ports are finally starting to play up, as is the (imo redundant) disc drive. My brother recently bought a Nexus 7 and I have to say, it's a wonderful machine. So I thought to myself, why buy a laptop next year to replace this one? Why not go tablet? So I throw myself at the mercy of the tech-savvy. I'm just not in-the-know enough about computers and their related technologies, being more of a base physics guy myself. I'm looking to replace my old Inspiron with a tablet/slate/hybrid with better specs. Below is my current specs: Dell Insprion 1525 1.8 GHz dual-core Pentium processor 2GB RAM 160GB hard drive 1.8 MP camera 4 x USB 1 x HDMI 1 x SCART (I think?) 1 x SD slot 1 x ethernet 1 x disc drive and two other ports I've never used nor do I know what the hell they're for Here's the basis of what I want - a tablet - 2+ GHz dual/quad core - 3GB RAM - 320 GB hard drive or as big as reasonably possible - camera's not important - at least 2 x USB - 1 x HDMI/micro HDMI - 1 x SD/micro SD/SD HC (what's the difference?) I have a reasonable spend budget of around £500 for this, and I'm really hoping it's possible. I love the convenience and involvement of a touch screen tablet machine, but I need my laptop's replacement to be capable of handling all the tasks my current machine does. My understanding of computer tech is quite limited, so I hope you guys can help. I've asked on a tablet forum, but all they told me was to look for models that are no longer made or sold, or cost thousands of dollars/pounds. Not much good to someone like me. What say you, oh wise people of the interwebs!
