I like the note 10.1, I had one a few months ago but had to return it due to personal funds at the time. I'm looking in the market again for a tablet the same as or similar to the note 10.1, which means it needs some sort of active digitizer for input. I would consider a windows tablet as long as it isn't too much more than my budget and is very light weight.
