What are you asking, exactly?

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 14, 2014 6:19:31 AM PDT
Will that be MasterCard or Visa?

I don't believe putting a question mark at the end of a statement actually turns the statement into a question.

And what about Memory & Storage for home?

ETA: Ok, since the OP is not a mind reader to get what we're asking, but expects those who they asked their statement to to be, I'll clarify/repeat Folina: "What are you asking? What does Memory & Storage for work mean? For work as compared to?"

Ha, the hostilest hostess of the DelusInn seems to think it does?

A relative would like a tablet she can use for work as an event planner--orders, client requests, etc. She says it needs a fair amount of memory and storage that can be transferred to her computers. She'd like the $600 iPad, but it seems unnecessarily pricey.

It's not unnecessarily pricey if it's the one with that does what she thinks she needs it to do. And, by the way, the current generation iPad with the most memory doesn't go for six hundred dollars. The 128 GB wi-fi only is $799. Cellular adds another $130 for a grand total of $929.

There ARE other options to increase capacity such as wi-fi drives, cards and personal servers, but they do cost money.

Because as someone who is completely unimpressed by any number of degrees, I can assure you that an appropriate, applicable answer is not forthcoming if the question is unclear and followed up by a smug demand that answers from volunteers who give freely of their time and expertise answer only be worded to your liking.

Since the criticism got you to take the time to actually explain what the heck you meant by your vague and arbitrary question, after which people began to put forth an answer, it can hardly be called "fruitless".

You're welcome.

In general, I think the Fires are primarily considered "media consumption devices". Music, books, videos, game apps, and web surfing.

I don't think they're particularly suited for professional uses. Maybe very basic stuff, but not, for example, major document creation.

There are bluetooth keyboards available to hack these issues, but at some point, it's just easier to buy one device that does what you want it do.

Aaaaand, this is why we love you.

It may be an acceptable form but it gave absolutely no context to what you were asking.

telling people to not post if they aren't offering constructive advice is akin to waving a red flag in front of a bull (gets one attacked) or trying to herd cats (fruitless)

and she/he would be better off with a full-fledged tablet or notebook

C'mon. You have to admit that this is pretty vague.

What KIND of work?
How MUCH memory, and what SORT?
Storage of WHAT? Books? Documents? Music? Contacts? Emails? Videos? Apps? WHAT?

She has a desk computer and an iPhone and needs a new laptop. These devices add up rapidly. Event planners don't make the kind of money suggested in movies.

And even well-known people don't know they need to add a tip if a planner works for the business owner. The perks of the job are intangible, but the expenses are high.

Please step over to the F queue if you are in need of personal shopping, mind reading or tooth pulling services.

Did she look at Microsoft surface (?) tablets? they're more like a hybrid tablet/laptop. not sure what their prices are, but guessing comparable to ipads and you probably would get more features.

Also, if she transfers regularly she may not need that much space, just enough to store a few days worth of data. How much space do these spreadsheets take up?

With due respect, it's no business of yours.

ETC: Pardon my question mark.

Keep this up and people will just stop trying to help you. As you said, we all have something we should be doing.
