We take our big laptop on each trip and every time the person in front of us reclines their seat, I have no room. We watch movies on the 3+ hour flight and it helps us pass the time. So, I have a milestone birthday coming up next month and my wife suggested instead of her buying me a gift that I probably won't like (yea, we're both hard to buy for), she suggested something like a "tablet" to take on the plane and not be bothered if some As*hole decides to recline all the way back. I'm a large person but choose to never recline my seat knowing how it inconveniences the person behind me. Yea, yea, I know, if they don't want them to recline, the option shouldn't be there. It's still rude and deserves a thread of its own. OK, so what should I be looking at? I want to be able to copy movies to the device to watch on the plane. I don't need phone or internet, but since none of these devices have an optical reader, what do I need? Looking for recommendations. It has to be big enough screen for both of us to watch the movie. I own Magic DVD Ripper, but don't know how to copy that to the tablet, or whatever you would call it, since it has no DVD reader.
