Hey EDCers I'm a college student and I'm in the process of selling a bunch of my books back to Amazon and, coupled with a gift cards I got over time, will have quite a bit of money in credit with them. I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and an HP 14.5" laptop (coming up on 3 years old), but I've been thinking about getting something to fill the gap between them, more portable than my laptop but more capabilities that my phone. The main purpose of the device would be entertainment (surfing the internet, watching movies, not so much playing games), school notes, light school work, and personal administration (calendars, reminders, etc.). My biggest issue is which OS to get. I love the Android platform but I'm worried that in a tablet form I'll find it a bit lacking and I'll feel like it's just an oversized phone (my phone as it is is on the large side already, and I want something that will give me a good reason to buy it). I also like the idea of the Windows 8 Pro tablets because they'll give me the most capabilities of current tablet OS's. I do not intend to get an Apple device. What I've been looking at is: Google Nexus 10 http://www.amazon.com/Google-Nexus-10-Resolution-Accelerometer/dp/B00ACVHKSC/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=26N2D43TZ7MSQ&coliid=IE94EZQAO7TT8 Acer Iconia W510 http://www.amazon.com/Acer-Iconia-W510-1666-10-1-Inch-Tablet/dp/B009P7JIZ2/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=26N2D43TZ7MSQ&coliid=I35T00JL25G38R Microsoft Surface http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Surface-32GB/dp/B009XNBFJK/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=26N2D43TZ7MSQ&coliid=I2A1WWPBTAJDLO and the Asus Vivobook, a touchscreen enabled ultrabook/netbook http://www.amazon.com/VivoBook-X202E-DH31T-11-6-Inch-Touch-Laptop/dp/B009F1I1C4/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=26N2D43TZ7MSQ&coliid=I3DG6UQ45L2SNK I'd like to spend less than $600 on the device, so that rules out convertible laptops and higher-end tablets Any thoughts on these from anyone?
