LOL i feel like you think your girl won't really care what kind you get, but people can tell when you purposely got something lower quality just to save money; and that's not something that girlfriends usually appreciate. Remember even though its the thought that counts, shallow groups of women need to be able to brag about what their man got them

Not being cheap but its just part of her gift. She is not into technology. If I was buying a Tablet for myself I'd want it to do a lot more. But she'll use it for Temple Run, Angry Birds, and maybe browse the Web some. I jUst don't see the point in getting a nicer tablet when she's not gonna use any of the features. It has nothing to do with being cheap.

Honestly, most people just use it for what he (the OP) said. I'm 'tech savvy' but basically all I do on my ipad is read ebooks, play some short attention span games like Jetpack Joyride, and browse the web. It's nice having a skype feature for facetime etc, but I could really do without those. Most people, including me, still use Skype via computer. I don't need to be video chatting with people all day. I do wish I had a smaller tablet though.

The Nexus seems awesome, as does the Ipad Mini. I bought my girl the Acer Iconia Tab A500 Tegra 2 Dual-Core 1GHz 1GB 16GB 10.1'' Touchscreen Tablet Android 3.0 w/Dual Cams, HDMI & Bluetooth Refurbished from Buy.com. At that time it was $219 ($238 total with tax). Anything she wants to do she can...skype, play games, read books, surf the web.

I'd recommend buying something 'cute' as opposed to something insanely functional. High chances are she'll either not use it much at all, or just use it a lot for one thing. Until my girl got some books in Japanese on it she barely used it. After she got those books on it she uses it almost everyday to read on her way to work/back. For most people/girls, it being really portable is the biggest thing.

just get the Nexus 7.

even if she uses it just for simple things, it's better to get a tablet that has great screen, battery life, that doesn't lag all the time. If you get a $100 tablet it will have all those problems that will make your gf's tablet experience awful, even for those simple tasks.

a $100 will also breakdown easier, as it's made of cheap materials, and you might have to spend more money later replacing parts. just get the nexus 7 , and you'll be done in 1 go.
