Best tablets of 2011

As the year draws to a close, we reveal the top five tablets of 2011

1st place: Apple iPad 2

Apple iPad 2

Why: Was there ever any doubt? The iPad 2 may not have the best specs, may not support Flash and may not have the best camera, but there is no doubting it combines superbly constructed hardware with an excellent ecosystem to produce a slick user experience. There are many tablets that have better cameras, more ports, and more flexible software, but none of them come close to replicated the user experience that Apple provides with the iPad 2.

The iPad 2 is faster, thinner and lighter than its predecessor. If you liked the original iPad, you'll love the iPad 2, but for current iPad owners the second generation iPad isn't a necessary upgrade. However, it easily remains the best tablet on the market.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
