So, I'm heading to college next year to study game design, web development and film (majoring in media design/production) Anyway, I want to get a tablet next year for multiple reasons. Here is what I'm looking for:

  1. I need my DELL laptop to last all four years so, I want to take the work off the computer to something lighter and more portable.
  2. I want something light to bring to class for taking notes, browsing, word processing, and reading textbooks. My laptop is about 6 pounds and honestly, isn't worth carrying around...so I think a tablet would just be way better.
  3. I want something with a battery that lasts atleast 8 hours, more would be nice, but it's not needed
  4. Might be weird, but I'm a huge tech geek and I want something i could play with and such.
  5. Not an Ipad.
  6. something around the price of $250-$350. If I need to I will go up to $400, if it's really worth it.
  7. Lastly, I would prefer a 10 inch tablet, because of the bigger screen space.

I have been looking at tablets like the Nexus 7 and 10, along with HTC Flyer, and the Archos Tablets. I'm really leaning towards the nexus 10 though. Again, No Ipad...and lastly...I am not getting the surface...

Since no else seems to have read the OP.

I have recently purchased a Nexus 10 for exactly the same purpose and I could not be happier. Paired with a bluetooth keyboard it is quite nice for note taking and surfing the web. Also, if you like to tinker a Nexus device cannot be beat. The XDA-Developers website is a fantastic resource for customizing your tablet.

I suggest the iPad mini, because it's fast, you almost don't feel the difference with a 10 inch iPad. Also the Apple iPad (mini) is the best interactive office tablet with other devices that are either Apple or Microsoft. If you want to type better you can also think about the ClamCase or the Brydge to use it as a tablet and a laptop at the same time. The ClamCase kindda works like the Lenovo Yoga 11s.

Hope this helps you.

The Lenovo yoga 11 running window RT is an option as it has a full keyboard inbuilt. Another option is the Vivo Tab RT as it has a detachable keyboard, again it runs windows RT, for a full list email me at CoatsyJnr@gmail.com
