I have been in the apple world for about 3 years now (iPhone and MBA) I had the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Macbook air (Selling + BB Student Discount) I recently (TODAY) purchased a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition for school. I thought It would be my solution so that I could take notes on powerpoints for class and save them digitally. Well...... I have to convert the PPT to PDF in order to take notes on them, and sometimes it loses color on some pictures and makes them B&W??? So I MIGHT return it because Its not necessarily the solution I need (Unless someone has a suggestion). I NEVER really take freeform notes (without powerpoints present.) I was looking at the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, I hated windows when I used it (win 7) but the functionality and versatility seem like something I would really like. I played with the SP3 @ TigerDirect and BestBuy but I had no less than 6 people asking me if I needed help so I really couldn't get the feel for it, was annoyed and left. I cannot afford to keep the MBA and buy a SP3, so I was thinking of selling my MBA, returning the GN10.1 and using a 10% off BestBuy Coupon to get the SP3 i5 256 8GB. But in many ways it makes me very sad to part with my MBA. I know I sound indecisive, but Im looking for someone with any experience with any of the above device combinations. Thanks to anyone that posts! D.
