My beloved netbook is dying and I want to replace it with a tablet. But which one?

I use my netbook primarily for web browsing (IMDB from the couch, recipes in the kitchen, IMing friends), with some light casual gaming and music playing. I used to play videos on it as well, until it started blue-screening. I need a tablet to replace the netbook, but there are so many options, and I don't really know what's best.
-Size isn't a huge deal to me, but I'd love to keep the cost below $300, which rules out all the 10-inch tablets.
-Expandable memory would be awesome. If I understand correctly, this eliminates the Nexus 7 (which was otherwise a frontrunner).
-I don't need 3G.
-I already have a keyboard Kindle, which I love for reading books, so I don't need to have great e-reading capabilities. But I'd be willing to root a Nook Color or Kindle Fire if either of those are good options.
