Is it mad to buy the galaxy note 10.1 2014 when I have a note 8.0?

I do love what I have seen from the new note 10.1 with the features from note 3. I do love my note 8.0 but think it would be good to have the note 10.1 for at home and my note 8.0 for on the go..but really should I bother having the note 3, 8.0 and note 10.1? Do you think it's foolish?

I will be getting note 3 too of course too.

I did do a setup for Note 8.0 and I didn't like it. I mean, the functions are better then on my iPad3, and the S-Pen is really a huge advantage - but the size is too small as a work pad.

...so I am looking at the Note 10.1...

But I would go with an iPad if comes with an S-Pen, or something similar. Till then ... 10.1

I have gone to iCal on my Mac mini and exported the ics file to desktop. Problem is. When I import it to google calendar it says zero events imported. In iCal I can see lots of items (almost every day). What am I doing wrong?

Well, I have an iPad 3, iPad Mini and Galaxy S4. I use each of them every single day in different ways. So to answer your question, from my perspective it isn't mad, or crazy as we call it on this side of the pond To me it sounds quite reasonable!

Yes it's mad, but given your spending habits reflected on this forum - i'd say it's within acceptable normality for you

This is true.

For now I can afford to do it.. Foolish it may be.

How much of a pain would it be to take the 10 with you on the go as well?

Id say buy the 10, sell the 8

That is still a big device to carry around with you..the note 8 is currently on a 2 year contract so thats a no go.

Well all that would happen is it would replace my ipad 2. Which I use a good amount for youtube e.t.c and forums.

Only thing is will I use the note 8.0 less on the go with the bigger note 3 in hand.
