Tablet for Student--Note Taking
I'm posting here asking for some quick help. I'm looking for a tablet to aid in note taking and productivity while at college. I've been doing research but feel like I'm swimming in open water--there are so many options and I don't have the knowledge base necessary to make informed decisions. So that's why I'm recruiting the help of the gurus here!
First, let me explain the specifications I'd like to meet:
-Approximately 10" tablet
-Only wifi connection is needed (no 4G)
-Budget of around $400 (flexible)
-Good note taking ability using stylus (digitizer and active stylus)
-Microsoft office is a plus but not necessary (Google drive can be used instead without much of a problem)
-The ability to take notes on PDF files (annotate while I read)
-Also used for general web browsing, video watching, email checking, facebook, nothing too serious
I have no brand loyalties and do not necessarily want/need a key board (2in1, transformer, etc) although it would be handy at times. I would scoop up the Microsoft Surface in a second if it had a digitizer and could be used to take good notes. I've been mostly considering the Samsung note 10.1 but it's so expensive that I would have to purchase the older (not 2014) model and I'm hesitant to buy older technology. There are so many tablets and 2in1's that I just can't narrow it down. Someone please point me in the right direction of some tablets that can fulfill this role that I can further research. Thanks very much!
