    Hey guys, I'm part of a sports team that is looking for some kind of tablet to mount on the wall and keep track of assignments in a spreadsheet to upload. It's not necessary but we'd prefer a large screen. It doesn't need much processing power or battery, as it will be mounted just for running Excel. Our team is self supported so the cheaper the better.
    Thanks for any recommendations you come up with!

    Being an assignments board, is ease of visibility a factor here? You can get tablets up to 10.1" in screen size, though only tablets with screens smaller than 10" can actually edit files in mobile Excel. If however ease of visibility is a factor, for example if multiple people need to view the same data at the same time, a tablet may not be best here. Instead, buy a Chromecast from Google - and an inexpensive TV if you need one - to display on the TV the spreadsheet, using Microsoft Excel Mobile.

    Evening all,

    I need some help choosing a 'for now' tablet.

    Long term I will be getting a surface pro or a high spec 2in1, but that won't be until next year when I am looking to start the new business.

    So, for now, I am looking for a budget tablet, with a larger screen, that will do a half decent job. I am not expecting the performance of a high end tablet, but don't want something juddery or that I have to wait to load up a page for five minutes.

    I have seen recommendations for Fire HD 10, Lenovo M10, Huawei MediaPad T5 and others and am super open to you guys as the experts!!

    I will be using it for surfing, streaming on the odd occasion, but not so worried about sound as I have portable Bluetooth speakers. I would also like to be able to scribble on it with a non linked stylus (for notes / thoughts etc).

    I would be open to a refurbished option or older model if it would be better for me.

    Your thoughts and opinions would be gratefully received.

    I have already read / watched a few reviews, been on Which, but now looking to the experts and trialers out there [​IMG]

    Thank you,
    Emma

    Hi all, just found this great community!

    I'm also looking for a new tablet. My current Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) is really starting to feel sluggish at times. I also have a light bleeding problem in the top right corner issue that's visible when watching videos. If I'm doing other things, I don't see it. I mainly use this to check feeds on in the morning which is the main thing that's gotten sluggish on. I also then use it to keep tabs on games I'm "paying attention to" and watch videos on when I'm traveling. I just tried a Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus tablet which I ended up not liking and is going back. I also noticed it was a def step down (in size, but still doable) from the 10.1 I have now.

    So now I'm looking at different options. I see the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) 32GB on sale at Best Buy for right now at $170. That's really enticing. But the 2GB of RAM scare me haha (esp since it's the same on my current one). Would that be enough for the tasks that I do? I do see they have the 128GB which has 3GB of RAM for $250. I haven't really been keeping tabs on these deals, is that a good price for the 128GB? I then also see they have a Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020) for $255 with AT&T. Is a Wifi only option coming soon? The specs on that look pretty good and should be enough for me.

    Are there any other tablets I should be looking at?
