Hi, I am looking to buy my first tablet. I have a note 3, a 13 inch laptop and I want to get something 8-9". However, most newnew high end tablets have a unibody design. I plan to use the it for a very long time. When the battery goes, I will mod it to become a clock or some picture frame without the battery. Aside from nexus 9, I am not sure if other new tablets which get frequent updates are worth it. Maybe the Samsung galaxy tab s is another candidate. I don't have and don't plan to buy a heat gun to open the internals. I don't want to go 10" or more since it is too big. Handled my wife's note 10.1 and with the cover, it is quite bulky. Main usage is media consumption, games, emails, annotate pdf and onenote. I use the s pen quite a lot for notes. Since it is already near to June, I am not sure if it is worth it or should I wait for new announcements?
