I recently posted on here asking for laptop recommendations and got some great responses - thank you! It's my mum's birthday in a month and I really need to order something now, but after asking her a few questions I think she's leaning towards a tablet!
It'd be used for emails, browsing, YouTube, viewing photos etc, and I've just had a thought - they have the complete Sky package, but sometimes stream from their desktop PC in the office to the dining room TV or the living room TV with a ridiculously long HDMI cable and it's a real nightmare to get everything setup... with a Nexus 10 or laptop, she could watch the Flash stream a lot easier than she dos now?
+ Lots of apps, has the desirability factor, very polished interface
- Would need to buy an Apple TV also, no Flash, very limited
+ Has HDMI output, Swype input which she loves, already has an Android phone, runs Flash?
- Not particularly polished interface, poor choice of tablet apps
+ A proper keyboard is even better than Swype, perfect for streaming football
- Pretty sure she likes the idea of having a tablet since it's less clunky
Any thoughts? Thanks

I was in a very similar situation and decided on ipad. The overwhelming factor in my decision was that because they are so much "it just works" meant the number of times i was going to end up being 24/7 helpdesk support was minimised.

Why not a Windows 8 Tablet? Some of the Dell Tablets come with the keyboard so it can be used as an ultrabook + tablet.
