Wes is in the market for a tablet for reading music. Leo says that while there are tablets that cost less that can do that, Leo advises to use the iPad. There are so many apps that are musician centric, including transribing music, many musicians are now using iPads rather than having sheet music when they play in a performance. So the iPad is really the best option for that because it'll do so much more. And it's worth spending the extra costs. And you don't need the latest. An iPad 3 would work just fine.
