laptop to tab?

so sitting in class today taking a shit load of notes it came to mind that i can type a hellllll of a lot faster than i can write.

Last semester one of my buddies in Humboldt used to have one of these 10"GTabs.

Turned out it was his Dads company. He let me play with both of their 7" and 10" tabs and i admit they were pretty dope. I already have a 15" macbookpro but this bastard is like 6 years old haha. I want to get a new laptop thats for sure, but what do you guys think of that 10" tab?

  1. Ah I miss my laptop. Well it is about 6 years old so about time it died. Gaming desktop just isn't the same, not quite so portable!


  2. That tablet looks pretty awesome.
    Tablets are getting super popular. I had a loooong discussion about upcoming ones with another coworker.

  3. Netbooks are useful for this as well

  4. i will never, ever use a tablet. My phone can do everything a tablet can, and does it faster.

  5. i would do anything to trade in my laptop for this magical device

  6. I'd love to have a laptop for once.. just for the easy transport -.-;;


  7. about time someone compete with that lame ass ipad crap

  8. i don't know if i would trade a notebook for a tab, but i never tried one so...

  9. Tablets are super cool, but as far as using it for taking notes in class, I don't see it being as good as a laptop. The lack of tactile feedback could be annoying and typing on a touchscreen could get tedious, plus you'd have to be looking down at the tablet all the time, which could lead to neck strain.

    This tablet does look pretty sweet though. I love tablets, but I just don't think they are suited for a classroom (at least when it comes to taking notes).

  10. Laptop's still rule for me - you can't beat a proper keyboard

  11. A tablet would be a fun toy to have, but if you're conducting any sort of legit business, you've gotta have the laptop.

  12. I really need to upgrade my own laptop...

    Following and supporting,

  13. Personally I don't like tabs. I feel if you dropped one they are done for. But, that's like for every electronic. And I agree with Ish. I don't think they're meant for classrooms if you have to take notes.

  14. Really? I type really fast, but have never compared it to writing.

  15. how about a LABTAB? I should get paid for my genius

  16. tabs are good, but for notes and stuff they're coming out with a graphite tablet you can take notes on and save n stuff for $100. think it works as an mp3 player, too.

  17. Sweet, but i go with a regular pc


  18. is it laptop..! or tablet because i have one like this but it i$ tablet for drawing..

  19. nice thing!


  20. Laptop, 100% sure. Its better to feel the keyboard if your objective is typing fast. With a tablet you might have mistyped something and don't realize it

  21. i think computer still is the best for serious stuff, but tablets are sure alot of fun for on the go. following
