I have the galaxy note 10.1. It's my first tablet as I have always thought them a bit gimmicky.
This model seems to da more than I need. The advantage with the pen is fine control, practically pin point accuracy.
I can download what I want to it, they are plenty of apps, it even has infra red control for replacing tv remotes.
The Apple is an Apple, seems tied to I things and I have never liked that.
If you google Ipad/Galaxy they are a few demos of pros and cons.
