Looking for advice. My wife needs to use Excel to create lists, work schedules and basic inventory lists. Besides Excel she does basic surfing, email, Netflix. I've seen a number of $199-$250 Windows 8.1 laptops and a few $250-$299 tablet/laptop machines. Here are some examples: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Asus-Transf...Dock-2-GB-RAM-64GB-Storage-Gray-/331385517608 http://store.hp.com/webapp/wcs/stor...eam11&storeId=10151&langId=-1&catalogId=10051 The fact that I can be all in for under $300 is very appealing. For iPad, I would get her an Air plus a keyboard case. I'm looking at $550 at least. I'm also concerned about using Excel on the iPad. I think she would miss a mouse. So, what would you recommend?
