    Yes, i can tune the MoVI with my Macbook,
    but since i co-own this with another Seattle filmmaker, we're going to just purchase a tablet top keep in the kit such that it is always there for tuning if need be.

    My question is: what is the best tablet for this purpose?
    i've never even looked into this category at all.

    7" would probably be fine, since its cheaper and lighter yes?

    would this $150 Nexus 7 work well for this purpose?

    is there anything else i should be thinking of?

    That would be perfect. Proven to work. Not all Android tablets are created equal.

    That is the one that I'm using and works great! Good size, good price!

    I got a Toshiba from Amazon.com for $99. Works fine. I don’t use it for anything other than fiddling with the M5. Battery life isn’t great. If I leave it sleeping for a few days the battery runs out, but I suspect that’s all the Google bits talking to the mother ship periodically. I’ve taken to shutting it down altogether, and that works fine.

    Hi. What model Toshiba have you got. The nexus ones are more than Im wanting to pay, The Toshiba are very well priced.
    Any other reputable Android tablets people are using?
