If $400 is all you can spend, there are better tablets out there than the iPad 2. iPad also enjoys the best support by far from third parties, both in terms of quality applications and accessories like cases. Only drawback is that the base model of the iPad has only 16 Gb of storage, which fills up fast these days. You should think for at least a 32 Gb model, for $100 more.

2. Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ (starts at $269)

The HD+ is B&N’s first model that is large in size, with 9 inches on the diagonal. The resolution at 1,920 by 1,280 pixels can show more detail than a living-room HDTV. The Nook is family-friendly too. You can create user accounts and restrict them from certain content. It comes with just 16 Gb of storage, but it can be expanded with a microSD card. Nook is perfect for an avid reader or movie watcher. But the number of apps available is small, and it doesn’t have any cameras, while the competitors have two each.

2: How do you justify this line. Have you used it? I understand you don't like Microsoft but, give it credit for what it is worth.
"Microsoft’s first tablet seems at first similar to the first iPad. It’s thick, heavy and rough."

I have used both iPad3 and Surface and it is few grams heavier than iPad which does not feel much and it got bigger screen. It runs word, powerpoint,excel etc other than modern apps.
