We have been researching tablets on the chance that we will be able to purchase some for our class.  We have been looking at the iPad2, Google Nexus, Acer, Lenovo, Asus, Microsoft and Samsung Galaxy tablets. We examined the specs and made a chart. We then discovered that there were some things on the specs that we didn't know enough about to make an informed decision so we started to research those things. We will do more tomorrow but here is what we found today.

The Lightning Cord. The lightning cord is a smaller version of most cords that plug in for electrcity. It is easier to use because it is not as easy to jam it into the connector. It is lighter in weight and more portable to carry.
