    I bought the wife a Toshiba two in one for x-mass and wouldn't give you two nickels for it, when you flip it around for a tablet the keyboard still works and there are no inputs so everything has to be wireless.  otherwise I use an acer and have for the last 3 years, love it !!!!!!

I have an iPad and mostly love it. I still struggle with the cloud, but I like it. It's basically a big iPhone. Be patient and I think you will learn to like it. I use mine for work, travel and take in the shop with me to look up manuals, etc on line. I learned to properly type in high school so I do miss a real keyboard. My home laptop is an Acer that I've had for five years without issues. They're a lot cheaper than the name brands. I think my work laptop is a Dell. It's light but the screen dims to save power when it's not plugged in. Maybe that is a setting that can be changed.

Good luck

My wife just got new iPad 128gb, 9" display, I see the 32 gbs are being phased out at low prices. Depending on your needs one of these may suit your needs.

I have an HP and my wife has a Toshiba. They have both been very dependable as long as they are not dropped to frequently. :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:

My HP is a 17" model which makes it easier for me to see. It was under 400 bucks.  JMTCW.

Mrs. has a Toshiba tablet and really likes it.  I know absolutely nothing about them so the daughter set it up for her.  Main system is a 3 yo gaming computer, rebuilt and souped up with a ton of memory and plenty of speed.  Acer brand same as my monitor.  The equipment is really nice and I love it but can't say the same for Windows 7 and the LiveMail that comes with it.  Nothing wrong with XP except no support any more and the tech won't touch it.

Working on GT's and gardening the nails never get a chance to get that long.  I have them broke or tore off before they get long enough for that.  I'll stick with the ball point pen.  HA!
