  • Kindle uses a different technology which helps in reading for longer hours. E-ink, it mimics the experience you have while reading a paper. Lesser strain in eyes. Other tabs uses normal screen which will strain your eyes if you read for hours.

    But kindle doesnt have ANY other functionalities that you have in other tabs. You can't even surf the web smoothly, if at all. It is made solely for the purpose of reading. Even it's touch will not be as smooth as modern day phones.

    Oh didnt know that. I have been lucky pdf has been converted perfectly. You can just email the pdf to your kindle id with subject line "convert" and it will get converted perfectly

  • Xiaomi Mipad

    Pros:
    Budget,performs well in browsing ,reading offline, software experience like evernote pushbullet ,various android apps related to studies(thats not possible with kindle and apple products are costly),latest updates from MI

    Con(Just one):
    No sim slot (only wifi option).
    That's the difference between you and me,you wanna lose small and I wanna win big!!!

  • @"ashika sharma" if ur purpose is to read pdfs only then just buy kindle paperwhite .no second thoughts for it as no strain on eyes while reading e books pdfs etc

    @brahmarakshash couldnt agree with you more!!!!
    - i had kindle basic few months ago and reading PDFs on it was not satisfactory!!!!
    -Had to do a lot of zoom in/zoom out to read
    -also converted pdfs were not upto the scale of screen.... few of them were but not ones with a lot of diagrams and graphs

  • iPad 2...0ffer main you can get it for arnd 17k at snap deal or amazon.
    Google Nexus 9(HTC) 16 GB,non-LTE.you can get it for 16-17k at paytm or such site.
    Mipad....best in its price range.
    ·
  • Three things from my side:

    1. Screen of Pad/Tablet should be large else go for Laptop coz Diagrams and Maps need to be fit in 1 Page for better understanding. In Big screen enlarged text can be viewed in single page.
    2. Kindle has poor compatibility with PDF and other files viz. Excel, PPT.
    3. Taking backup from Apple product is always cumbersome.

  • If you want to ms office in mac you need to buy the original pack torrent walla nahi Chalega 90% of any other software which you want it to installed in Mac should be genuine plus hard disk space is also less max they provide in India I guess is 512 gb that too the higher model one
    In dell you will get good specification with a high RAM graphic card ...Alienware of dell is the highest configuration laptop
    ·
  • As in many cities in India voltage do fluctuate ....specially Delhi during summers cause of which the graphic card on my Mac malfunctioned to get replaced the apple guys quoted a cost of 60k ...though it was under warranty I had ouch asked it from New York but Apple does not provide global warranty .. I had to get it done from USA

    MS Surface Pro is a good choice. The problem with Apple device is their compatibility with others.

  • Do we have any 'E-ink' tablet in India which can open PDF and Excel smoothly?

    Heard Mi Pad display is least straining to eyes. If soothing to eyes with PDF, Excel compatibility be the sole criteria, what you guys suggest?

    MS Surface pro is more like a tablet or laptop?
    Any other? Asus has launched one recently
