    Hi all, I am a new Tablet user. Got my first one yesterday, an ASUS MeMo 8 Tablet. I have a lot of stuff (music videos mostly) that I want to put on my tablet. I read that I can use up to a 64gb MicroSD card. I definitely want to do that but not sure what to get. Some say Class 10 and others say Class C. Which should I get?

    Second question, what is the best stylus to get? I looked at several but comments were that they weren't good for games because they wear the rubber tip off too quickly. What would you recommend for this tablet? It is model ME181C.

    And last question, is there a way I can move my contacts from Incredimail to my tablet?

    I have to say, I have had more fun today just pushing the icons on this little thing. I just know I"m going to love it! I am so happy that I can access the files area via my ASUS Notebook... nice feature. Thanks for any help.

    Regarding the MSD Cards, these are typically available as Class 2, 4, 6, & 10 where the Class indicates the transfer speed of the MSD in MB/s. If you plan to watch movies and videos stored on your MSD, you should use a MSD that's Class 4 or higher to get smooth playback. (I buy the least expensive Class 4 cards available, but from a reliable store, and have never had a problem.)

    Thank you! I've always had good luck with Sandisk and Kingston products. I definitely pan to watch movies so, like you, will go with the less expensive one.

    Now I need to know about a stylus. I find it difficult to play games because my finger is always in the way. It's okay for card and casino type games but the ones where you have to match objects (like Candy Crush) are not so easy.

    Are there any tutorials other than how to open the box and turn it on that are helpful. I have many questions but the manual doesn't offer answers. For example, how do I save pictures from Facebook to my tablet? Or.. how do I save an attachment that comes in email? I got one today but ended up going to the desktop to read it. Can I re-arrange the icons on the home screen so I can put my games all in one corner?

    Once I learn my way around this tablet, I'm afraid my desktop may become obsolete! I really like it so far.

    Thanks again for the help.
