I think my main limiting factor is my budget of $220 USD. I purchased two cheap $100 tablets from BB and sent them back because they just weren't going to cut it. I currently have an Asus tf103, but I'm planning on sending that back. It's 10.1" and at first I was thinking I could deal with it, but it's a little too big for my taste / it's not super light. I'm trying to make myself love the 8" note by Galaxy, but it just looks unappealing to me (physically). I'm strongly considering an iPad Mini, however I am just not sure if android / os apps will be sufficient for note taking (from everything I've read here it seems like they would work fine). I'm a bit against getting a windows tablet primarily because I already have a 15" pc that is running Windows 8 (just ordered a new battery and ac adapter for the laptop, it's been dead for a little over a year and I've owned it since 2012). I also have a 13" late 2013 rMBP and I've been bringing that to class, but I want to switch to handwriting (it helps me remember more) but I want to keep my notes digital. I've been using evernote on my mac, but I'm not sure if the iOS / Android versions are any good. If any of you use android tablets, what note taking software do you use? Getting close to just giving up and hanging on to my Asus tf103, haha there's just so much research I've already done. Oh I have an adonit jot pro that I may or may not return depending on the stylus. Any advice you can render will be very much appreciated! Looking to place an order of some kind tonight and end the madness haha. I'm a neuroscience and econ major hence the emphasis on handwriting notes ( lots of diagrams :/ ). I don't plan on buying a bluetooth keyboard since I have my mac and windows laptops.
