Apple iPad (2012)

Once you get a look at its 2048x1536 resolution screen, the feeling of disappointment and sadness will be difficult to avoid when picking up any other tablet. Just as fast as the iPad 2 -- and even faster in games --with access to the best apps available anywhere, the new version of the iPad easily earns its premium price.

Amazon Kindle

Think owning an iPad means they don't need a Kindle? Wrong. The featherweight Kindle is great for distraction-free reading, and -- unlike that beefy iPad -- it won't cause wrist fatigue during long sessions of content consumption.

Amazon Kindle Touch

If Dad's an audiobook fan, the Kindle Touch is your best (and only) choice in the sub-$100 e-book reader range. And if he's not, it's still a great all-around touch-screen e-book reader.
