    Hello all! My name is Greg and I just joined the site in hope of learning some and sharing some as I learn. I was given a laptop for fathers day with the option of returning it for a tablet and I took the latter.

    I'm on the verge of selecting and ordering a Tablet. These are what I've been looking at. Also, name brands really aren't my thing. If I like it, if they can do the job and I can get a warranty then count me in.

    1. Motorola Xoom Tablet 10.1 (love the size)

    2. Toshiba Thrive 10.1 ****(FRONT RUNNER)****

    3. Acer Iconia A500 Tab 10.1 (does what all the rest do...nice size too)

    4. ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101-A1 10.1 (16gb starts at $399)

    So I was wondering what some of your thoughts and suggestions might be I really like having the peripherals (especially the SD card reader)

    Welcome aboard Greg! Glad you found us!

    Out of all the tablets on your list, I would personally wait for the Toshiba Thrive.

    My reasons:

    Full sized ports
    Removable/replacable battery
    Changable backplates
    Built in file manager and tool that lets you connect to any printers using the same WiFi network.
    Comes with it's own media organization software
    Comes with Swype pre installed

    Here's a good video you might want to check out




    We also have dedicated sites for those tablets you are considering, be sure to check them out. Might be able to help you make your decision. What ever you decide, we got ya covered. ;)

    Transformer Forums
    Xoom Forums

    Thanks Wicked! I will be placing my pre-order this weekend. From everything I've seen it really has everything I want. It also seems spec for spec one of the best Tab's that's gonna be on the market.:)

    i have the xoom and recommend it to anyone who asks. It has all the most popular connections and has no manufacturer skin. It also has no huge bezel like seen on other tabs.
