I just want to pull something up and write on it, whether it's pen or paper or a tablet. The latter has bonus of being digital from the start.
I've looked at ideapad as I've already tried and returned a lenovo(thinkpadx200).
Windows (desktop systems in general) is simply not made for this form and speed is critical.
If I have to dig it up and wait startup and then load programs... then it's more convenient to pull up pen and paper from the bag.
If the iPad works like a cellphone (which it should, read moaning about it being a big phone) then I just pull it up and go.
30days standby(lol?) suggests that's how it works.
