    I would most probably use it for Surfing net, Watch videos, play games and if possible, I want it able to connect to a projector or a tv.

    Both devices will do what you are needing to do, the question is which OS you are more comfortable with. Keep in mind that the Ipad2 will require a special adaptor cable to go to HDMI.

    Neither, because none offers anything else than HDMI. Well - you could use the iPad together with AppleTV to mirror the display on a TV, but that's a quite expensive "adaptor" ;)...
    And I don't know any tablet offering RCA out or something like this.

    I have the a500 and love it. I didn't get the I pad because I have an iPhone and wanted something Droid so I could have access to both worlds also he a500 has full size USB on it which rocks. As far as pluging it into a TV/projector are you doing this at home or on the go for like presentations? And all new stuff is pretty much going to be HDMI out.
