Due to a recent laptop issue that may or may not get resolved, I have considered buying a tab as a replacement for my MacBook. I will be clear in specifying that I do not run any advanced programs on my laptop. Any advanced program for school is done in a computer lab on campus. Therefore, my only concern is word processing. I will need to be writing huge university essays. I have been using Google docs for my word processing lately. I was thinking that if I just bought a keyboard for the tab it might be suitable. What do you guys think? I have heard that tablets do not like when you are rapidly typing with a keyboard because they have trouble keeping up, but I don't know how true this is. I am also unsure about how difficult formatting would be. I only need to perform the basics so I don't think it would be a huge issue, but I just don't have the experience to know for sure. I'd like to hear what your opinion is on this. Do you think a tablet is suitable for what I have described? Keep in mind that I will be doing lots of essay writing on my own time, and I have access to computers at school if I desperately needed one for something. But I need to know that a tablet can get me by with what I need.
