What is the best tablet to use for PowerPoint presentations?

[I would prefer an Android-based tablet since I'm already familiar with that platform.]

By "best tablet" I mean, which is the most reliable and intuitive device for running PowerPoint? What about connecting the tablet to a projector? Do they all have mini HDMI? Of course I wouldn't be designing the presentations on the tablet, simply running them.

Thoughts? Any help is appreciated!

At first glance its probably the iPad. Sounds like there are a number of apps available on Android that will display PowerPoint, but all of them have issues. See:

BTW, the ThinkPad tablet above is running Android.

An iPad can handle PowerPoint presentations out of the box as email attachments. Or of course you could purchase Apple Keynote for example, which can open PowerPoint presentations.

Hands down the best tablet for the job would be the ThinkPad Tablet. Check it out here. It's built for business from the ground up. www.lenovo.com­/products­/us­/tablet­/thinkpad/

Thank you to everyone who presented answers, I appreciate them all. I'm going to hold out for the Asus Memo 7" tablet (coming some time in Q2) since the price is pretty darn awesome for the kind of guts it houses. I figure Best Tablet at CES is probably a good bet. :-)

Use ccview.me You would have to uplaod your presentations in advance, usually. But you can start a presentation, share a link via email and move through your slides. The attendee clicks on the link and sees the slide that you are showing.
