Which device should I buy?

The Holiday's are upon us and gift buying will now move into high gear for many parents. I am sure that some sort of technology device is on many wish lists. Products like the iPad Mini, the Microsoft Surface, various Android tablets like the Nexus and the Galaxy, and color e-book readers such as the Kindle Fire and the Nook are utilized across our district. We are receiving many questions involving our recommendation. While we try to avoid suggesting specific models (each school's miDevice plan is different and parent's are spending their own money), we encourage the use of online resources to make comparisons. Here are a few to get you started:
