Muzzy996's points are all good. My take is: depending on what kind of writing you;d use the device for, mainly, & how frequent your deadlines, this is less a software question than one of hardware. I.e., ergonomics.
I've always liked typing on a touchscreen, but the keyboard has to be spaced a certain way. Haven't measured anything, but the iPad's keyboard is great for me—I can just fly, & with slightly higher accuracy than on a physical keyboard. (I recognize I'm in a minority on this.)
I haven't tried the Note Pro 12.2's keyboard. I suspect the key-spacing will be something most users can get used to. But there's a related ergonomic challenge, which is the relationship between the keyboard & the screen. I've always hated writing on a laptop, because the keyboard's attached to the screen. It's tiring holding your head Just So for hours, and stamina counts if you're writing for hire.
You can use a separate keyboard with a laptop to keep your posture strong, but then you're wasting a large part of the computer's design. That's why I prefer tablets as mobile writing devices: I can use a keyboard for a day's work, then just tap on the glass for shorter stuff (emails, texting &c).
So for me, at least, the Note Pro 12.2 will be an ergonomic improvement over smaller tabs—&, I submit, over any laptop. The software question is mainly about the features you need. On the desktop, I work in MS Word, with a set of custom macros to make my life easier. I've never seen a word-processor in a mobile device that behaved enough like a desktop app to make me happy. That might require keeping the Macbook Air.
From what I've seen the on screen keyboard is very much like a regular pc/mac keyboard, and again from what I've read and seen hancom word is ms word compatible. I really think I will make more use out of the 12.2 than my macbook air. I still will use my mac desktop for my main writing but will send to the tablet for relaxed copy reading, editing and then send back to the desk top. I really do think tablets like the 12.2 and the note 10.1 2014 are practical replacements (at least for my kind of writing) and can do a lot more and easier than a clunky laptop. I see using a blue tooth keyboard like apple's for writing and editing with the 12.2. I'll have 30 says to try it all out.
