This Christmas we're going on a long drive and flight to visit friends for a week in BC.
We're thinking of giving our daughter her big present early so she can use it while travelling to beat the boredom.

What tablet computer do you recommend? I don't want an ipad since it's so expensive, but the options are endless. I'm hoping to score a deal on Beyond the Rack, but don't want to grab a bad deal.

Something I can download apps on, but don't need to access the internet to use (since we'll be in the car and on the plane).
