So my macbook was doing all sorts of gross warping things, and finally I snapped the hinges, and seeing as how it would cost 3/4 of the price of my macbook to fix it, I am thinking of just getting a new computer in a few months in time for college. I have read a bit about the modbook, and I find the idea intriguing--I would really like to go completely paperless in college, and I like the convenience of digitized notes, while still being able to write them out. Scanning my textbooks also seems like a possibility that would be helpful. However, I am unsure about whether the processing speed and so on of the modbook would be enough. I use my laptop mainly for schoolwork and such, web page design with the macromedia programs is probably the most memory-intensive thing I do. Yet it really seems to take a toll on my computer--it tends to lag noticeably, compared to the Macbook Pros I have used. So I guess my question is--do people think tablets provide a significant advantage in a college setting, and if so, would it be worth getting one despite the lower specs I would have to settle for with a modbook?
