Right, I'm about to go back to college. I have a super duper gaming PC which will be the main workhorse machine. I have an HTC Desire Android phone which is very reliable. I sync all contacts etc through Google. I also have a 17" Asus laptop which doubles as a second desktop really, that my kids play on.
I need something portable for college. I originally thought netbook! But my head has been turned by the shiny, shiny tablets. Now, I pretty much (irrationally) hate Mac for being over-priced and pretentious. But the Ipad 2 is sorely tempting me - I'm Mac-curious you could say. But then there's the very well reviewed Asus Eee Pad Transformer - an Android tablet running honeycomb.
This thing must have some office functionality - I'm going to be using a separate keyboard (comes with the Asus or I'll buy a Mac wireless one) and will need word proc, spreadsheet and even possibly database software. It needs to play nicely with my big old PC.But I'd also like to lol on the sofa, surf, and wonder at its beguiling form.
Normally, I'd go straight for Android, but I hear the app support for Honeycomb is still poor. And, as I said, I'd quite like to see what all the fuss is about over in the Mac camp? Is the app store a thing of wonder? Will itunes make me smash the fascia in a fit of pique?
Can anybody put me right? Do I want the moon on a stick? Any advice from anyone who's used these things much appreciated.
