Tablet PCs/buy tablet


Can you direct me?  I am a first time buyer of a Tablet.
I have no idea where to start.  I am in the USA.
I need something lightweight, smaller than laptop, larger than smartphone, mostly for internet - email, youtube, google, social networking etc...under $200.  Also which store would you go to?
Walmart, Best Buy, Fryes?
Thank you for any direction.

Dear Leah,
If you want to save money there are plenty of cheap brands; but I won't recommend you any because all have some limitations i.e.( Built quality, display, Touch response) etc.
I am enlisting  Android, Apple & windows  based Tablets as you forgot to mention operating system; 8 inch and above tablets cost much higher then your mentioned budget.

I recommend Google Nexus 7, 32GB wifi ($229)

----------Android Operating system -----
Google Nexus 7 ($229) , you can opt for 7 inch (wifi or Wi-Fi, LTE, HSPA+ (mobile functionality)
Choose 32GB because you will suffer storage space if you opt for less i.e. 16GB
link pasted click buy to see store options (Walmart, Best Buy)

If you want to buy 8 inch or 10 or 12in then get Samsung Galaxy Tab S

--------Apple Operating system -----
Cheapest Apple tablet is IPad mini (16 GB) $299

-------- Microsoft Windows 8 ----------------
Asus - VivoTab Note 8 32 GB Net-tablet PC - 8" - In-plane Switching (IPS) Technology - Wireless LAN - Intel Atom Z3740 1.33 GHz $325

Asus - 2-in-1 Tablet - 11.6" - Intel Atom - 32GB - With Keyboard - Blue $400
