Ok, Pro and Con GT3 7.0/Asus Memopad 10.1

Galaxy Tab 3-via 50 dollar Sprint deal.
50 dollars up front, thats nice.
has better stats than the near 200 dollar wifi one
can take a microsd-I have a extra 32 gig one
There's a otterbox case for it, so thats a good thing.

Will have to pay at the very least 5+taxes/surcharges every month for the next 2 years, if I take the MINIMUM data plan and only use wifi, or 15+taxes/surcharges if I take their 2 gig/15 dollar a month plan.
7 inch screen

Asus Memopad Smart 10.1-via Gamestop
Pros: 150 bucks brand new, reduceable if I trade in some stuff
10.1 inch display
has gotten fairly good reviews
Only paying the one time fee, and no monthly costs

Will be 150 or so up front minus any trade in credit, almost 3 times the GT3 cost.
Stats are a bit lower than the GT3, in terms of Ram/CPU, storage is the same, and both can take a microsd card.
No real specific-accessories for it I think, more usage of generic case and screen protector, and from what I can find, no real strong/protective case?

So, feel free to give me more input on my choice on of these as my personal holiday gift?
