Hello, and thanks in advance to anybody who replies. I'm new to the tablet scene and have pretty much decided it's the way I want to go to take notes in my lectures at university. I live in the UK so options are limited, I can't even find anywhere that keeps models in so I can try one. I've been considering the two below? 1. Are these good choices? 2. Which is better? 3. Is the extra price of the Toshiba worth it? 4. Is there any other convertibles I should be considering? Lenovo X61 Tablet 7767 £1,345.80 inc.
