Honestly, I didn't care much about having a tablet until my husband, Dave, got the new iPad and gave me his old one to use. I already had an iPhone and couldn't see how a device that basically did the same things, only bigger, would be worth the money.
At first I only used it to mess around on Facebook or play what Dave lovingly calls "big solitaire," but now I couldn't imagine not having one. As a freelancer, it's great to have a better option for checking and responding to e-mails from the road, and I can even do a limited amount of work on my tablet, which means I can keep up on freelance gigs without dragging my laptop on shorter trips.
Any new technology is going to be an investment, and I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for. While researching the EvoMax, I came across a lot of folks who said they just wanted a tablet to do one or two things, but I think what happened with me happens with a lot of people. Once you have a tablet, you find a lot more uses for it than you initially anticipated, and aren't you going to want something that can grow with your needs?
