Digital notebook/tablet tech help, 10 pnts?
I currently use a laptop and not very comfy with on-screen keyboards and touchscreen technology
But I was planning on buying the Samsung galaxy note 10. or the Asus Transformer infinity. But seems this android technology doesn’t support regular features like Dreamweaver, right? Are these good tablets for someone who has forever used Windows?
I want these tabs mainly for note-taking, quick scribbling? So I found this other option called digital notepads (DigiMemo or Cyberpad) or something. Are those good? What is the hard drive storage capacity? I found a link, but I dont think this is quite the thing? Here is the link, http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B00264GKXO/ref=pr_all_summary_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1
Anyone has any idea/suggestions? Product names in particular? I am from the writing field so basically any software that allows me to write/scribble on the go would be great
@ Georgi, I realise that it is not a very coherent way of putting a question, especially from someone who claims to be from the writing field. But I am going to a techno fair in this evening hence the hurry. Thanks for answering.
It will never be a replacement for a laptop. However, I use it for school and it is amazing. I have a Asus Transformer Infinity and I had the exact same consideration. I was think about the note 10.1 as well. I played around with the note and I loved it. It’s amazing. Even though, it does lag sometimes even with its quad core processor, it is a nice tablet to work with. The TF700 or Asus Transformer infinity is also great for notes. You can buy a stylus if you want and mine came with a keyboard dock. It is fast, high resolution screen and it does everything I want it to do. Great for entertainment as well. I wanted something for notes in class, word processing, creating presentations, creating graphs, watching my 1080p movies and playing high quality games. The TF700 was definitely my choice. If you purely want a tablet for note taking, not entertainment and word processing, go for the Note 10.1. It’s pretty good. Otherwise, get the TF700 (btw, TF700 has jelly bean update available already and the note 10.1 doesn’t)
What is the difference between an IPad, Netbook, Tablet, Notebook, EReader computers?
I guess I am more technically challenged than I imagined. Can someone please explain what each of these are and how they differ from each other.
Netbook = small computer, low power, no cd/dvd drive, normally runs android, linux, or lightweight version of windows. Normally has a screen 10 inches or less in size
notebook and laptop are the same. Basically they are just computers that have a built in screen, mouse, keyboard and speakers all in one device. Normally the screen is 10 inches to 18 inches
tablet is a generic term for a (normally) touch screen computer without a physical keyboard nor mouse. Generally they are designed to be less powerful but have a longer battery life. Generally they have less than 10 inch screens
EReader is a type of tablet designed to read e-books
iPad is a type of tablet that Apple made to do light-weight computer usage (web browsing, watching videos, small apps).
Tablet, Phablet, or Netbook/Notebook?
I currently own a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, as well as a Desktop PC that I use for design work. I want to get something inbetween to “bridge the gap” when I’m away from my PC. I can either
A) Keep my S3 Mini and get a Tablet (eg. Google Nexus 7)
B) Sell my S3 Mini and get a Phablet (eg. Galaxy Note 2 or 3)
C) Keep the S3 Mini and save up a bit for a Netbook/Notebook
Which one would you recommend?
A Phablet consumes more power which would mean you’d have to charge a lot, a notebook is worth considering however which notebook would you pick? I ask this because some tablets are now more powerful than notebooks and a lot easier to carry around so you might want to consider it too. If i were you i’d get a tablet. So in my opinion, the first option seems the best among the three. Hope this helps
does anybody kno how much a tablet notebook computer cost?
Yeah, a tablet can cost anywhere from $1500 to $5,000 depending on what you want in it.
Notebook vs Tablet (ipad etc) explanation?
So my HP laptop’s basically on it’s way out (had its day!), so i’m looking to go ahead and get a new computer for personal use. I guess I just do a bit of everyday net surfing, facebook, youtube, hotmail, etc etc.
My question is – I’m well aware of what’s around now with notebooks and tablets (like ipad, samsung galaxy, etc), but is there much difference with what I can do? What I mean is, is a tablet essentially just a notebook with a touch screen, smaller, cooler, and without a keyboard? Would it have a built-in wireless router thing to pick up my household ADSL internet signal etc?
I’m after some info here on whether buying a cool-looking tablet which I’d love to have is going to be just like having a notebook kind of scenario.
@Corndog11, I always find this a very tough question to answer. It all depends on your needs and comfort.
You have mentioned that your needs are very basic: browsing, videos and may be gaming (though you haven’t mentioned that). For these requirements, a Tablet might be a better option than a notebook as it is more mobile.
When it comes to internet connection, most of them come with WiFi support, USB dongle support (for your usb internet data cards). Very few of them come with Ethernet ports (I am not sure if it is popular in your country).
A tablet is a like a notebook in some ways. It is come from the need for people to have a mobile device like the smart phone but with better computing power, easier input and better screen resoluton. There are tablets that allow a keyword to be connected if you want a more laptop like experience. These keyboards may not be as convenient as a laptop’s keyboard because of their smaller size. If you have to do a lot of typing (like typing many pages of documents everyday), then a laptop would be better.
But from what you have mentioned as your requirements, I think a Tablet would be a better choice.
