The ebay vendor dropped the price for the used 10.1" NS-14T004 quad core Jelly Bean Android tablet to just $44.99 plus shipping now.

What is a GOOD tablet for someone who is only going to use it to watch YouTube videos and read on Nook and Kindle? My mom wants one, but she doesn't have a lot of money to spend on one. She won't be downloading a bunch of apps, just the reading apps so she doesn't need a lot of GB's either. I have been looking but the ones I have seen online have bad reviews. Help!

#1 is battery life. Many tablets require being sent back to the manufacturer to replace a battery. ALL batteries (tablet \ phone \ laptop) start to degrade at around the 2 year mark. Without knowing how long the person has had it, that is a gamble I prefer not to take. It sucks having a tablet that needs to be attached to a wall most of the time.

This little guy is getting really good reviews. You have to put everything into perspective: for $99 this tablet is an awesome buy. Incidentally, I discovered that the online Windows Store does not accept gift cards and Best Buy does not sell this tablet in their stores or in the online store. I have a Best Buy gift card also. Strange.

-Cheers.
