How many billions of dollars ar...

Tablet suggestions needed - sneakytiger
I'm shopping for a family tablet for internet browsing, emails, music, and movies. I've ruled out Apple due to lack of expandable storage and the MS Surface 4 is a little pricey for what I need it to do. So I think I'm set on Samsung, but Best Buy has over 50 different models (Newegg shows ove...
