that's why i was choosing between them as they were on offer. went to the shops today and neither were in the shops which didn't help trying to test them. the Sony is only 300 now as well. so still not sure which one to get

Yea the good points back on the xoom tho is bigger screen more memory for the same price. but is heavier. what is the Sony like compared to the others. i don't think there will be much in it.

Was just looking on the websites and you can get good spec laptops for the same price.

Buying a laptop i have no problem with but a tablet is in the unknown

I've had an android tablet (vega from Currys) for about a year and I find it excellent, I've upgraded it to Android 3.2 and do geeky things like controlling my MythTV system from it. It is useful to use when on holiday to keep an eye on things, there's an SSH terminal app and a Windows RDP client so I can even manage the servers, although a laptop is still better if there's a lot to do.

If you are happy with the out the box experience, then I'd guess it doesn't make much difference whether you go Apple or Android, if you want more control over the device, then Android will give you much more flexibility. Hardware wise, the newer Androids are more visually pleasing then the older ones and not a lot between them.

When I got mine, the Android SDK was free, Apple needed a developers license and I didn't fancy trying to learn Objective C when I already hat a little Java experience.

I had Vega for about 3 months its a nice little tablet the only problem was poor viewing angles on the screen. Fine head on but drops off considerably lying on the couch etc. For a Sub 200 tablet you should definitely look at getting a HP touchpad on EBay and loading up CM9

Thanks everyone

I ended up buying the sumsung in the end, as the xoom was just to heavy for me.

The discount code TAB5 still works so i got it in the end for 265, not bad i think, can wait to get it tomorrow now
