I’m going back to school this fall (but it’s an online program) and I currently only use a desktop computer at home. I’m considering getting a small laptop or a tablet with keyboard so that I don’t have to be chained to my desk all the time. So tell me about using a tablet as a laptop, or if you think a laptop is still preferable to a tablet. Ideally, I would be able to switch relatively seamlessly between the desktop and the portable device for watching lectures, reading the material, researching and writing.
