Howdy, My wife's dad has an aging laptop that is slow as molasses these days. He rarely uses it as he keeps it in a separate room and the only thing he uses it for when he does it browsing the internet. He mentioned that since it's so slow he might buy a new one. However, we're thinking he'd be better off with a tablet since he can just set it on the table next to him, can use it for internet and email as well as the thousands of apps. Because he's older, he would need a full size (9"+) tablet so we won't consider the Kindle Fire or any of the 7" models. I was looking at the original LePan TC970 since I saw nothing but great reviews on it and it's under $200. He is not and never will be a power user and won't have any reason to root the device. If I can root it to get a nicer version of Android than Froyo I may do that, but that'd be the only thing I'd do to it. Is there any other tablet that would fit the bill here that you'd recommend over the LePan? I'm open to any and all suggestions. Thanks.
