Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition or a Laptop
Hi everyone. I will start my college soon , I'm not sure which one to buy , this or a new laptop , I was hoping someone can help me here , I'm looking for something that help me do most of the college work .so I'm not sure about the galaxy note , I never owned a tablet before , I have been using laptops all the time but from what I saw this galaxy note will be more easy to use in the college and more easy to carry around , so my question is , can I depend on the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition to do all or at least 90% of the college work? and does it have any good keyboard that I can use to type for long times without the feeling that I wish this was a real computer keyboard? also sorry for the noob question I never looked at the tablets before (as I wasn't interested in them before), is this Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is the newest tablet from samsung? or there is newer Galaxy note ?

I do college online and have a laptop and the Note 2014 edition. For school work I prefer my laptop(17.3" screen). If I had to carry it around everywhere I'd probably feel differently. The note can do most of things that a laptop can do but if your classes need specific programs like MS Word or Excel or Office than a laptop in any size is your best bet(just make sure that cpu/memory/storage is upto par. Android devices are evolving and it won't be long before they truly surpass what a good pc can do, but they're not there yet(but this one is very close). This tablet is great for audio/video/games/web browsing. It does come with many apps that mirror the MS Office suite, but they don't have all the features. The ability to write notes with this tablet is neat but if you're already good at typing it won't make much of a difference. I have a bluetooth keyboard/case for my note but the keyboard has to be in use for about a minute or two before the tablet will stay connected otherwise if you stop typing for a second or two it will disconnect which is really annoying. A new thing with these tablet is that you can finally print to a printer via your wifi if the printer is also wifi. This tablet is great but I do recomend a reasonable laptop for school.

My galaxy note is great, however, the amount of time you are going to use the note to do term papers and other documents will be hard on you. The keyboard is not the best. It might be good for taking down fast notes at a class or lecture, but not to do in the long term such as writing an essay. I find that typing fast on the note leads to misspellings.
