Help With Tablet Choice

Post by Monty @ Mon Mar 27, 2017 9:52 am

I'm a complete incompetent when it comes to anything IT, but I thought I'd quite like this:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Amazon-Fire-7- ... ablet&th=1

The idea is to use it (or similar) downstairs for forum & general internet access, rather than using the small screen on my telephone, or having to go upstars to the PC.

Ideally no more than £75. Any suggestions? Would I be better getting something that's not 'Fire' related (although I do have Amazon Fire TV).

Geek me, please...

We got one of those on Black Friday for my daughter. Noticeably slower than an iPad but it was peanuts and works fine for the type of stuff she does (games, books, iPlayer, Netflix).

Can you use it through any wifi, or does it have to be used via Amazon's fire thing?

Thank you for awakening that previously quite-happily-repressed memory.

You just want to be respectable.

He played at my alma mater in about 2000 and went down a storm with that song.
