Other than an apple I pad 
What’s the best options 
Just need it for surfing the net and accessing sky and football sites 
And don’t want to pay big money 
I’m not going to buy data just join the internet when ever I can 
Thanks for any help

Left my ipad on the plane coming home from last holiday. Like you didnt want to pay big bucks so bought a Lenovo. £169. Does the job. Obviously not to the same build standard as Apple but serves its purpose. 

Samsung normally have decent specification but not sure of costs.

Vince, sound advise above

Just remember you get what you pay for so..if you skimp on the processor it'll be slower...we've used most brands at some stage either for business or the kids which have both been upgraded over the years as required.  Everyone has a favorite brand as do I but the family would disagree as most would on here. Levorno  are only good as a door stop should they fail but are exceptoonaly cheap. Thr chrome book option is fine for surfing online but as said get the fastest processor your budget allows. A brand not mentioned above is Asus, (not sure of UK availability) which we use for the kids now as upgrades for college/Uni. Very well speced & FANTASTIC battery life...leaves my wifes Mac for dead. As said work backwads from what you want to pay as opposed to spending what you think you need to. Reach out anytime if you want more help without the tech speak as most salespeople will supply what they're going out of and are on commission fot.Once you know what you need you'll most probably get a better deal online than the hig st. 

Appologies for any typo's as I'm using my phone while away.

if you just want to surf the net and a few other bits I would get an amazon fire for about £30 next time they go on sale (which is very often)
