Best tablets: Editor's choice (August 2011)

PC World's Editor's choice tablets are a rank of the top five tablets based on personal selection by the PC World Australia editorial team

Are you in the market for a new tablet? See what our expert reviewer's recommend with our editor's choice selections. These tablets are a rank of the top 5 models based on personal selection by the PC World Australia editorial team.

Our August editor's choice list is headed by the market leading Apple iPad 2, the current, undisputed king of tablets. We've found room for three Android "Honeycomb" tablets including the razor-thin Galaxy Tab 10.1, along with the 7in BlackBerry PlayBook. Despite its lack of native e-mail, the PlayBook's UI and compact size makes it a nice alternative to larger tablets.

Apple iPad 2

The iPad 2 is faster, thinner and lighter than its predecessor, but it inherits most of the original models flaws. 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, and it has poor quality cameras.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
