My $200 Laptop Can Beat Your $500 Table

Different Technology, Different Uses (1)

I would love to see a notebook that actually allows me to take serious class notes. A keyboard does not make for good diagramming or calculus calculations. I'm not a big fan of the iPad because, frankly, it's a toy. However, just because the iPad is (surprise!) a piece of direct consumer technology from Apple doesn't mean that the tablet format is entirely gimmick. I'm unhappy with the current tablet market because I can't find a cheap tablet that gives me the note taking functionality of my 4+ year old Wacom screen tablet. Sure, it weighs a metric ton but it allows me to take class notes and handle textbook PDFs effectively.
