Hi! I'm looking at getting my first tablet, and I've never had a smart phone, so: please bear with me if these are dumb questions ;).

I'm posting here because I'm hoping to get one that 'plays well' with my NEX5R, if there's one that's easier to work with for a newbie? I'd like to be able to use it for post-processing, and maybe for remote viewing/control - (is that an option?) We'd use it on trips, for backing up and viewing photos, so does that mean I should go with one that has a memory card slot?

Do people prefer Android, Apple or Windows in cases like this? which has the best tablet apps for pp?

Tablets with Wacom styluses are intriguing, but how much better are they for writing and pp than capacitive styluses?

Our main computer runs Windows, if that means anything. Budget is up to about 500. Thanks for any help you can give to get me off the fence!

It's a no brainer as far as i am concerned, get an iPad Air, best user experience, great screen, great selection of software. Only problem is that once you view your photos on the iPad Air, you'll most likely want to get a better computer monitor.

Since the poster uses Windows on his main computer. A Surface, ACER or Asos or others may be a better choice. There are a number of laptops/tablets with equal or better screens than iPad Air as far as definition is concerned.

Sorry, but it makes little difference if he has a Windows machine or a Mac, the iPad Air is the best tablet.

and many more knowledgeable reviewers say the same.

Totally agree. I had an iPad for 2 years, synchronizing it with my Windows 7 laptop, an IBM/Lenovo T61p Thinkpad

SD cards are copied into the iPad with a $30 "camera connector" very easily. iOS reads ARW and Sony jpegs perfectly.

And with the Zagg keyboard, it becomes a "little iOS laptop"
