a tablet may work. I have a Galaxy Tab and I can't believe the sound that comes out of the speakers. The new tablets are coming out with true Hi-Def screens.
I basically want a laptop that is good at playing music (good speakers), video playback, and surfing the internet fast. I don't think I need a ton of memory. Also, I would like for battery life to be decently long, but that's probably not even going to be an issue anyways. For the price, I would hope for it to be under $600. And, no Apple products please.
