what Tablet to buy

hi all,
I was thinking about buying my wife a Tablet Pc for Christmas, she has a ipod touch and surfs the net, booking sort breaks and would like something with a little bigger screen, maybe look at the odd video,check emails, I have seen a few for just over a £130-150, anyone got one to recommend,

Thanks Mad_Monk

Following FE's posts, maybe consider a Kindle - a book reader primarily but worth a look:(Only Black & white)

if your wife's primary concern will be surfing the web. The browser that comes with the 3G Kindle is experimental, and surfing the web with it is far from ideal. There's also the disadvantage of a monochrome screen.

The Kindle is a perfect device for reading books and files, but if it's the internet you're after, take a look at a Netbook instead.
