In fact it is not a matter of price, but of use. I have no use for those machines. I do not see the need to be "connected" all the time.

I think you are very confused. I have a tablet and do NO social networking of any kind to be 'connected'. Yet I use it pretty much every single day. I would say that 90% of my use of it is down to reading and online chess playing. Tablets are purest heaven for people who love to read and to be honest, of those two activities, reading is by far what I spend the most time using it for. I do a lot of chess reading on it too of course.

I am not confused, Albert.
For anything I do a simple desktop or notebook is lot more useful and easier to use. For reading I prefer paper books and in any case I have a Kindle, equally better to read than a tablet.
To have s clear perspective of what you need and what is the use for you of anything proposed by the market is the opposite to be confused.

If you don't have a tablet, it is not at all obvious you can judge it. Almost everyone I know who does not own one says similar things to you, but they change their mind after experiencing one.

As to paper books, they are a dying breed.

Nothing compares to a real paper book when it comes to reading....

Well I bought a tablet to satisfy my curiosity, and it largely just gathers dust. It was a waste of money for me.

I always was the guy who did not want to give up my paper books but once I started reading books on the kindle app for my android phone I have never gone back!! The reading experience is great!

And Chess Tiger for Ipad is one of my FAVORITE computer chess programs!
