ie those with proper active digitizers.
Add an ipad at the end if you like but make sure you caution about the poor stlyus input and poor palm rejection (if any)
I am a graduate school student in the market for my first tablet but I feel very overwhelmed with the options, o/s and models on the market.
I primarily would view pdf/powerpoints, school related websurf, listen/record audio of lectures, view, type, & edit word/text files – preferably with USB keyboard since I am uncertain about touchpad typing & USB option for jump drives or data transfer between systems. I currently don’t care so much about screen resolution, cameras, 3G/4G, watching HD movies or using it as a book reader, which seems to be what most of the tablet reviews talk about.
It would be great to get something sturdy in case I drop it and I don’t mind paying for quality. I am leaning toward tablet over another netbook do to my current 2 year old EeE PC WIN7 netbook’s poor performance.
That being said do you think anything the market fits my bill or should I wait for one of the tablets that are about to come out like the ASUS transformer Infinity? Fujitusu Q550 caught my eye as it seems rugged, security from theft, and it is running Win 7 (for compatibility w/my current file library) but then do I have to worry about viruses & trojans?
I dont mind buying an older model (Xoom, etc) as well or waiting a little longer for new releases. I have limited experience but apple is not my first choice. Thanks in advance.
