    I'm hoping someone with experience with tablets could recommend a couple of them to me. I've googled around but I'm not too sure what to look for so I didn't come up with much.

    I'm not interested in buying apps or games on the device, just want it for web browsing and videos. I'm looking for one that's at least 7" and around $200-300. Thanks :)

    Nexus 7 or the galaxy tab 2. I would lean towards the nexus though. I have one and its great.

    +1 for the nexus 7. Its a great Tablet. The 7" screen is the perfect size. I have a BB playbook and the only thing I like about is the screen size. The nexus 7 comes with Jelly Bean and Google Now is awesome.

    The only downfall i see if that it doesn't have expandable memory slot.

    Cheers!

    I just purchased a 16gb Nexus 7 from the Play store. Couldn't pass up the free $25 in Google Play money by ordering through them. Will get it on Friday. Selling my iPad2 64gb. :D

    If you only care about web browsing and videos ..... BB Playbook is highly recommended. IMO, it has the best web experience out of all tablets.

    You get the 25 credit regardless from where you buy it, as long as its new and no one has registered on that.

    I haven't put my Nexus 7 down for casual browsing since getting it. Go for one of those (especially if you are a Chrome user with all your bookmarks and tabs synced across computers).

    Either wait for the iPad Mini that is rumored for this Fall or get the Nexus 7.
