I hate it when people that aren't me, get extra stuff without even paying 4 the extras

But I'm Happy that he'll not get to em :P

Wow that was very generous of Best Buy. 5 of the best tablets on the market is sure to brighten someone's christmas day.

The article clearly said she got iPads. How did she get the best tablets.

He said "of the best". Even Android fanboys should acknowledge that yes, Ipad is one of the best. Whether its the best or not is debatable, but among the best should be more than true.

That's not true, all she got where ipads.... Not the best tablets, a box with Nexus 10's that's the real deal.

Mxy, you need to learn how to comprehend - the article did not discuss Nexus 10 tablets.

I'd say the best tablets are;

1.) Surface
2.) Nexus 10
3.) iPad

And the Note 10.1 as honorable mention. Silly Mxy

Hmm, I wonder if they'll do this for good products... Wouldn't mind a box full box of Alienware laptops or Asus TaiChis, or a wall-full of TVs, haha.

She could sell 4 of them, or three of them, on Ebay. With the money buy a Nexus 10...and have money to spare.
I am not sure if 'needy' people's needs/priorities include getting some sort of tablet. Maybe the local school could use them.

Or just give for a charity, simple as that :)

Give it to charity? Like GOODWILL? Why would someone who needs the basics need a tablet? Now, you could sell it on an auction site and give the proceeds to a charity - that would be better.

Either ways, it still consider charity right?? I don't mind they use anyway to charity tho, sell or direct give, or even recycle lol... As long as they do the right things to this world :)

ok, then sell all 4 - both are good tablets - one just likes to rip you off..or, one of the tablets could be used for buying an itunes or google play card.
