For those who are enjoying their tablet right now with the standard or 12-cell battery option, do you take notes in landscape or portrait mode? If take notes in portrait mode, does the tilt caused by the battery affect the way you read or write? I'm thinking of taking notes primarily in portrait mode since it's closet to the orientation of paper I would normally use. From reviews, it looks like one side of the tablet is elevated about 1/2 in. Along with the 1.3" thickness of tablet itself, I'm wondering if it is somewhat cumbersome to write. Any feedback would be helpful! Another minor point. I'm planning on taking notes for classes. The lecture halls have these ridiculously small foldable desk area for each seat. It's about 8x10". Can the laptop, along with its protruding battery, rest comfortably on such a small desk? Thanks!
