I need help shopping for a tablet pc.

Basically my school is allowing us to use our own tech in class next year. So I'm shopping for a Tablet PC to take notes with. What I really want is the ability to use a stylus to write the notes with, but still the ability to use the keyboard for other purposes. I'm willing to pay up to $1600 for one and just want a powerfull Tablet PC.

Well discussed.

Today, if I were to do this, it's an iPad and the excellent note taking software found only on that pad.

This leaves you with enough money to add the nice 1100 buck or less MacBook pro!

I did consider an iPad, but I am more familiar with the Android and Windows OS's. I like what the iPad can do and want to eventually own one, but at the moment I want a Tablet PC, more than anything. Any other suggestions?

At 1600 bucks

I can get the greatest ipad, the keyboard and apps to get this done.

Can you share what other models you like?

The HP Touchsmart netbook looks amazing to me! I stumbled upon it today and I wanted to get the opinion of others on it.

I thought we were discussing tablets?

The 310x is a Windows 7 thing. It's interesting but is missing most of the touch experience.

We were but..

I stumbled on the HP touchsmart tm2t series and it opened me up to more options. I'm looking up the 310x though.
