    Hi people, first of all i must say that the commuity in this forum, being new here and all, seems to be (reading some threads) very active and friendly toward newbies like me.
    I am a 16 year old guy from Portugal who had his first contact with a tablet last month, and i, intrigued, loved to mess around with it (it was my friend's one)
    I now want to get one for myself :D, but i know nothing of tablets!
    I would like your help in this particular matter: can you suggest me tablets and information that is considered useful? :)
    My budget is 200 euros but i would gladly raise it another 50 or so if it was worth it
    Keep in mind that i would like a tablet that would allow me to do this:
    -read books and comics
    -was relatively fast for browsing and offline usage
    -could play games :D
    and i have a few questions myself :)
    -well, can i connect an external disk drive to my tablet? It would be awesome
    -does the tablet have an internal media player of his own? So i could watch movies and tv shows on it?
    If there was a tablet capable of doind this, i'm sold :p
    If you actually read all of my post, than you have my thanks and i would appreciate your help! :)

    Welcome to the forum
    Rather than make a suggestion about specific tablet, let me say that you need to find one has a USB port and preferably microSD card slot. Android tablets come with media players but there are plenty of other players available it will play pretty much any media. The USB port will allow connecting external hard drives and the microSD card slot will allow you to store your media on external storage. If you get a quad core tablet there should be no problem playing games and there are plenty of EPUB readers out there too.

    Do you think the google nexus 7 will be good?
    I mean, it seems affordable, good for reading, capable of watching some media and it is a quadcore :D

    That's a really nice tablet, but, there's no USB port or microSD card slot.
