What can I do with a tablet and is a PC necessary?

I'm considering a Nexus 7 as I usually use the net to browse the same handful of websites and send the occasional email.

The only things I otherwise use my PC for is to organise my music collection, which is no longer necessary as I intend to switch entirely to streaming, and to download the odd video file via uTorrent.

Are all of the above tasks possible with a tablet such as the Nexus 7? Can I transfer said videos files to a USB drive? I have used an iTouch so have some experience with the Apple method and iTunes. Will a PC still be necessary for syncing apps/files etc?

RE: What can I do with a tablet and is a PC necessary?

Hi, most of the tasks you mention wil be a piece of cake with a tablet like the Google Nexus. The only thing that may be an issue is how much music you want to store on the tablet - typically you're limited to either 16 or 32GB although you can use 'cloud' aps like Dropbox etc to virtually store music, pics etc.

Samsung 55Inch TV, Marantz SR 7009 Receiver, Panasonic 460 Blu Ray player, Monitor Audio Apex speakers, Monitor Audio GXW15 sub, Virgin Tivo box, Sony Xperia Z3 phone + Z2 Tablet.
