Linuxluver: Get an ASUS (or other) tablet that allows an external keyboard and external USB storage to be connected to it. That way you can have terrabytes of storage and what is effectively a laptop / netbook...and it's 100% linux (android flavour).
If you buy a popular one there will probably be custom firmware available for it, too.
They cost about the same as a laptop. They do far more.
Cheers for your reply, and the opportunity to say thanks for your linux-flavoured contributions to GZ which I have followed in lurk-mode for several years.
I've had my eye on the Transformers since first release but still a tad pricey for me considering my intended use - which is a laptop to use at tech this year. I'm kinda fond of android (currently own three different android devices) but as not satisfied yet with the office suite options - word processing and spreadsheet will be a must-have
Ideally I would love to be able to afford an ultrabook, but once again still a tad pricey for my student budget. In the meantime I like to leave my trusty wee Dell mini close to my hulking big toshie at nights in the hope they will cross-breed and.... oh never mind LOL
