How Much Is One More Inch Worth?
I posted about my next Nextbook Premium 8 tablet, here, a week or so ago.
I love it. I use it all the time to read, and for many other things. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a tablet.
But I just saw there's a new Nextbook tablet: the Premium 9. At the time, I thought the Premium 8 was the newest model. I purchased it on HSN.com less than 2 months ago, during a special tech segment, for 199.00, and I thought I was getting a bargain.
According the the Nextbook web site, I clearly did get a bargain, because the Premium 8 is being sold for $299.00 over there. However, even at that price, I wouldn't be disappointed. The few small complaints I have aren't even worth mentioning.
And now the Premium 9, which is an inch bigger than the Premium 8, is being sold for $350.00.
I guess if you think about it, fifty bucks isn't a lot more to pay for an extra inch. But my Premium 8 works very well and I have no regrets, and I'm more than happy with 8 inches. Most people would be. But if you are so inclined to have that extra inch, I'm sure the extra fifty bucks is worth it for the Premium 9.
