    Default Well hello there!

    Hello to you all!

    I'm seriously considering getting a tablet as my next upgrade. My 4 year old laptop has just about run it's course, so I would like to upgrade.

    I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and I feel a bit of brand loyalty towards Samsung. But that said, I'm not opposed to another brand, just concerned with compatibility with my phone. I would like to be able to do all of the same things that my laptop does. Mostly internet browsing and watching movies, but probably games as well. I don't need anything super capable, as I have a very good desktop for high end games and such, just looking for something portable and useful. I use my laptop the most to just watch movies when I fall asleep.

    My biggest concern is ergonomics. I have come to really like having a seperate keyboard and screen, since I can just set the laptop on my dresser and play a movie on it.

    I'm completely new to the tablet world, so recommendations would definitely be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forums! Remember, tablets cannot replace a laptop, but they can take over most of the functionality. I recommend a Note, whether it's the 8 or 10. You can use a bluetooth keyboard with one and make a stand for the 8 (at least) out of a desk calendar that has a lip on the bottom of it. I'll follow up on this with a picture of mine. I use it for my phone, mainly, but it did work with the Note 8 really well.

    Welcome to Android Central! I don't think you can go wrong with the Note. I'll let Scott talk more about it, since he has one.

    I agree that the Note series is an awesome series.
