Excerpt: We had a good Christmas season at our house this year, electronics wise! A combination of events from price drops and clearances to unexpected cash meant that my wife and I both ended up with a tablet. She got a white 16GB iPad2, and I got a 32GB Toshiba Thrive AT105 10″ tablet . (I am not a big Apple fan but my wife is a professor of education and iPads are already deeply integrated into education, so it was a logical choice for her.
Pros: Low cost, Full sized HDMI, USB, and SD card ports, Well-established support community and accessory selection
Cons: Bigger, thicker, heavier, and slower than newer tablets, Only a 5MB main camera
