Best tablets for music reading, writing, etc.

(If there is a better forum for this, just let me know) So I've been looking into getting a tablet lately. No need to know reasons, just know that. I have heard that that Ipad is the best, because of its abundance of music apps, including Morphwiz, symphony, etc. but I have also heard that Windows tablets, with their accessibility to Finale, are good. What are your thoughts?

Plus, an Ipad is about 500 dollars... A little bit out of my range.

Yeah.... I mean, the budget can stretch that far, I'm just wondering what your average UG user would recommend..... I don't mind Apple, but if there is a better option I will go for it.

Well if you're looking to drop a bit of cash the Windows 8 Pro tablets will more or less be able to run anything a Windows machine can run.

If not, the iPad is the best bet because there are more music oriented apps available.

I'm just going to tell you my view on this.

I bought an iPad 4 (retina display) and a airturn footswitch one month ago, and its been working great. In my opinion anything smaller than a normal-sized iPad is too small to read notation off.

I have so far used it for 4 gigs and as a tool when practicing aswell, so i would really recommend it. I think it's worth doing as i did and wait a while and save up for it, cause it works really great. It's really great that i don't have to carry around 20 realbooks, 20 theory books and A LOT of books on technique for different instruments + songbooks anymore. I just have it right there in the tablet.

If you have any further questions about it, just send me a message. Cheers!
