    Welcome to the forum

    There isn't really a single answer but my suggestion based on your needs would be to make certain you purchased a tablet with an available USB port and HDMI out. With those specs you should have little problem with connecting to an external HD or to a TV (with HDMI in). You should also be able to access your network over your WiFi for streaming etc.

    Hi shanye, congratulations on your new Archos 70 and welcome to the forum. Nice of you to become a member of Android Tablets. When you get a chance, please go to your profile and fill in the Tablet / Device entry. That way folks will know which tablet you have without you having to tell them every time.
