Returning an electronic device is subject to the return policies of the store. If you are buying a computer tablet through Instacart, you may want to check with the store that you are purchasing the tablet from to make sure you understand their exchange and return policies. In many cases, you can take the device back to the store with an Instacart receipt. 

If you receive a tablet from your Instacart shopper that's defective, damaged, or otherwise unusable, you may qualify for a refund from Instacart.

Computer tablets come with a wide range of storage space; one model of the Kindle Fire comes with about 8GB of storage space, while the iPad Air and several other tablets have 128GB. Many Android tablets are also expandable, so you can buy an SD card via Instacart to increase the device's storage beyond that. 

To determine how much storage space you need, think about what you'll be putting on your new computer tablet. You can ask yourself the following questions:
  • Am I going to download big, expensive games that will take up a lot of storage space?
  • Will I want a lot of movies and music available at all times?
  • Will I be downloading plenty of magazine issues?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you should consider getting a tablet with at least 64GB of storage. While that sounds like a lot, you may be surprised at just how fast you can fill it up. 

This depends on how much you plan to travel with your computer tablet. Although having 3G or 4G connectivity is great, it's another expense, and a data plan may cost you around $25 per month, depending on your service provider and how much data you need. If you need internet access from anywhere in the country, without looking for a coffee shop that offers free Wi-Fi, a tablet with wireless data could be a lifesaver. 

However, a lot of people are fine with just Wi-Fi connectivity. Between your workplace, your house, and the coffee shop where you like to hang out, you need to have an available Wi-Fi network pretty much all the time. Not only does a Wi-Fi network eliminate the cost of the data plan, but Wi-Fi-only computer tablets are typically cheaper as well. 

You can turn your computer tablet into a full computing experience on the go with a range of accessories. You can purchase a case through Instacart to protect your tablet from scratches and bumps. You can also use it as a stand for comfortable viewing. If you want a laptop-type experience, you can add a keyboard to your tablet. Instacart delivers plenty of tablet keyboards to choose from. 

Some keyboards attach to your device while others use Bluetooth so you can connect the device wirelessly. You can also add some app-enabled devices and monitor your fitness level and health, play interactive games, control your home's temperature, collect credit card payments, and more.

All computer tablets are touch screens and assume that you will use your finger as your stylus pen. However, if you want a stylus pen for writing, drawing, etc., there are some models that are designed to work with one. Each model is a bit different, with varying types of stylus apps and hardware available.
