Back in the day I bought a Nexus 7 tablet which was fantastic until I bought my Galaxy Note 2 phone. The phone is so large that I started using the Nexus 7 tablet less and less since it's only 7" and my phone was now 5.5".

I eventually wanted to get a larger tablet, probably 10", for lounging in the house and also heavy reading on Logos. After looking at all the options for tablets, I stumbled across the Lenovo Yoga HD 10+.

I think they are clearing out stock or something because currently it's only $279 which is an absolute steal for what you get. Here is the link: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/tablets/lenovo/yoga-tablet-series/yoga-tablet-10-hd-plus/

It has a 1920 HD screen, the largest battery of any tablet which should allow you to use Logos non-stop if you wanted to for 14 hours screen-on time, it has 32gb (everywhere else I found this tablet it only had 16gb but the link I provided is indeed 32gb), it has a SD card slot, Lenovo doesn't put much bloat on the tablet, it has stereo speakers on the front of the unit which sound awesome, and finally it has a built in amazing kickstand. You should really Google some reviews to see it in use. 

Anyway, I just wanted to put my recommendation out the for this tablet. I couldn't be more pleased, especially at the price I paid.

It does sound like a good one. The only caveat to mention and I will gladly be corrected if wrong, is Logos must be in main memory (not on a SD card) so as long as 32 GB is going to be enough for you (which it should since one typically doesn't load one's entire library).

I have a lot of logos resources loaded and it only takes up about 2GB. That's NAC, NICOT+NT, IVP, ISBE, and a bunch more. Along with games and other apps, I have 19GB left on the internal storage. Now for some reason if that isn't enough.. you can do the following trick I use on my galaxy note phone.

When you get this unit, refrain from updating to KitKat 4.4 and stay with JellyBean 4.3 (that's what the unit shipped with) you can 1 click root your device. It's laughably simple. When you are done, and you install superuser from the market (again, incredibly simply), then download an app called "foldermount". It requires root but it allows you to make any folder(s) of your choosing on internal memory available on your SD card. I use this on my Galaxy Note 2 because it's only 16gb and it struggles with space. I can move my entire logos library onto the sd card.

Thanks for the tip... and 32 should be enough for anyone's Logos library even with new media resources one might wish to install when they become available in the mobile world. Music and videos I would guess can always be easily installed on an SD card which are the real memory hogs for most of us. I know on my iPhone i keep about 1000 resources on my iPhone that are the core of the reference works i use regularly and it is only using 4.9 GB. People who try to install ALL resources tend to have issues.

Generally speaking you are correct, but a single Mobile Ed resource will use many GB's of space if the media is downloaded locally... so it really depends on the media resource.
