I have an Apple computer I use occasionally. I mainly use Windoze
because I can build my own.
Due to familiarity, I do find Windoze computers easier to use than using
a Mac. If I used a Mac all the time and seldom used Windoze, I'd find
the Mac easier to use.
I know I don't want an iPhone. Don't want an Android phone either. Nor a
Windoze phone. Or any kind of smart phone. I've already got a phone that
allows me to do everything I want to do with a phone. Got that covered.
I'm thinking about a small pad I can use to show my photos when I get
together with other photographers at a weekly brunch.
New iPads are likely out of my price range, but an older one might work
if it has USB and/or SDHC. I've noticed *all* of the current pad
offerings only have micro-SDHC.
And I'm resigned that any kind of pad I get is going to have a touch
screen, even though I came to loathe them when I was running the mini-lab.
I had the same aggravation continuously having to clean grubby
fingerprints off the glass on the scanner, and I hated that too.
But I still bought one when I wanted to be able to scan medium/large format
negatives/transparencies and old photos.

Silly or not, the original poster had made it very clear that he didn't want
an Apple product. As such, it seems more than a little pointless (or worse)
to suggest that an iPad would be the right choice for him. He's entitled to
his opinions, no matter how silly you think they might be.
In my wife's case she was upgrading from a Kindle, and was able to transfer
over all the apps that she'd purchased, so an Android tablet was the right
choice for her. If I get a modern tablet I'd probably go for an Android,
too - I've got an old ASUS Transformer I got as part of a project that I was
working on, and we both have Android phones, so there's really not a lot of
sense in considering switching to a different platform.

Odd. I judge products in respect to how much they can contribute to
my business and photography, not on whether they mark me as a fan
of any brand. The anti-apple thing seems more of a fan-boy cult
than does the apple buyer group. All very silly, IMO.

Looks like I should be able to find some good deals on a Samsung Galaxy

I think I'd prefer the squirrel.
The Galaxy Tab is a very nice piece of kit, especially if you don't
want to buy into the apple fan club. My wife has one, and it's all
but impossible to pry it out of her hands.
