When i explained it to customers this is what i said:
Tablets are great for people who already have a computer but want something ultra mobile with a lot of capability. browsing the internet, talking on MSN, hell even sending text messages through your cell phone, you can do with a tablet. Tablets are NOT good for heavy web browsing (if you like lots of tabs or browse hundreds of sites in an hour) nor are they good for process intensive things (video editing, photoshop, etc.) tho they do have some apps for that if you cant get to your PC. Printing from android is also a bit tricky.
I use my prime and laptop together, my laptop when i want to do a lot of stuff fast and my prime when im just stubling on the internet or checking my email, basic stuff. The prime will also be coming with me to school in may since battery life is a lot better and the weight is a lot less.
how YOU use your prime is up to you, if you put full linux on it, or whatever, is your option. Only you can decide if its going to work for you. My suggestion is buy one, use it for a week and a half, and then return it if you dont like it (most vendors have a 2 week return period). Make sure to double check, just tell the sales person "If its a gift and the person doesnt want it how long do they have to return it"
