School me on them.

I checked out the Kindle Fire today. Pretty cool and the price is right.
What else is there in that price range? The place I was at also had the Nook Color but the demo model was fucked so I couldn't really check it out.

I was also looking at the Archos 101 or 70(online). Seems cool and basically in my price range. I do like the 10" screen of the 101 but I'd really like to check one out in person. The USB, Micro SD and HDMI are a huge plus on this one but like I said, I'd like to check it out first. But so far, the Archos is kinda winning.

Basically, I don't really care about storage capacity so 8gb will do just fine. WiFi only is cool too. I really just want one for casual web browsing. I go here, bmxmuseum.com, craigslist, ebay, check my email and look at porn while on the shitter. And if I don't have wifi, I can just use my phone but I hate smart phones so there. :lol: And for what I do on the interwebz, I really don't need to have my big ass power hungry computer turned on all day. Plus, I have a ton of down time at work + free wifi there so this would help kill a lot of time. :D My phone has wifi but I hate using it for web browsing.

And before anybody suggests it, I've played around with my buddies iPad, and yes it's super cool but for what I want one for, $500 is a bit much. :D

Yes, for the 4 websites I go to, spending $500 sounds like an excellent idea!

I'm not into games at all, unless they have to do with bowling, but my buddy did have a sweet one on his iPad where you land the space shuttle. :D

I have a kindle fire a nook color and an iPad. Get the kindle fire for what it is you want to do IMO.

Cool. Another plus about the Fire is that I have a bunch of "rewards points" a coupon and a gift card for the store I can get it at and it'll end up costing me like $150 out the door.

$150 could also get you a few porn magazine subscriptions, if you feel like going old-school.

Nah... I'm more into live action these days. :lol:

Also, I'd like to ad that it's either this or some sweet parts for my bad ass Redline which I cant really ride for a couple of months since the weather here sucks in the winter. :D

I have an iPad and a Fire, and I second this.

For just browsing the web on the cheap and playing angry birds while taking a dump, the Fire is perfect.

Woot has a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 for $319. That's a pretty good deal, and the android tablet I would get.

Maybe if I'm feeling adventurous later, I'll cruise up to Fry's and check an android tablet. However, online it's not showing much promise for anything in my price range being in stock.

Then $150 will get you at least a few lap dances. But the cost per dance may increase if you're also dropping a deuce at the same time.

I don't know, maybe you should consider one of those tablet computers, or something. :shrug:

Will do, kitten. :yesway: From my experience with the iPad, I think that'd be best for you. But for me, $500 just to kill some time at work, it's a bit much. :)
