It is hard to carry around my heavy laptop.
Since iPad is expensive because of the 40 percent mark up apple charges, the next choice is no doubt, Nexus 7 made by Asus.
It is arguably the best 7 inch tablet: Powered Android 4.2, CPU is a quadcore 1GB ram.
The option of 32 GB harddrive is only for 270 Canadian plus tax.
(You get superb performance for this price.)

Well, you know are you paying more than 150 dollars per tablet for Apple's profits.
I don't want to "donate" to apple right now, so I chose the Nexus 7.

For someone who wants mobility and bigger screen size than a cell phone, this is perfect!
With Wifi available everywhere (except for on the bus), this is sure going to be very useful!
