    I prefer Windows because the live tiles imo are much better than the static iOS look. However, If you truly want a tablet, go with iOS.

    For such a limited use scenario, price might be a huge factor. IMHO, if all you will do is browse and read an iProduct would be money down the drain unless you get an older used model.

    I would suggest looking at the Samsung Galaxy Tabs. They are nicely built and are quite usable for most tasks. I'm looking to buy a used Galaxy Tab S2 9.7" model.

    You can pick up a Surface 3 for far less than an iPad these days, and it's a great little tablet. However, with such a limited use case scenario I'd honestly considering picking up a cheaper Android tablet (be careful though, they can be hit and miss). If you can find an Nvidia Shield Tab K1, they're bloody awesome and they won't break the bank.

    I agree with the Surface 3. Great little device for browsing, etc. especially if you don't like Android.

    According to what you say your intended usages will be, I'd suggest an iPad Mini. Have the 4th gen and use it for those exact same reasons and much more. Nice display, works well, very compact and battery life is really good. Its form factor and overall size, has lent itself well using it under many different scenarios, patio, bedroom, holidays, and even the bathroom .

    Now if future plans include some serious computing then maybe a Surface 3 as others suggested, would be a better choice.
