[Q] A little confused...advice?
Ok, first off I don't have a NC yet. The reason? Well, honestly because I haven't found anything clear enough for me to buy it...and I'm waiting for a sale *cough cough*. This is the closest thing to a tablet I could possibly afford, but I need to know that I can use it for certain tasks and such. Right now, I work as the help desk at my church and often have to carry around my netbook to use LogMeIn and make administrative changes to user information or to log onto other computers on the network. I don't like having to open and wake up my netbook only to wait for it to figure out where it is and what networks are available.
However, I am also in school. Although I haven't been able to find the specific textbooks I wanted via nookStudy, I still like having ebooks and such available for references and study tools. Honestly, I just hate carrying books.
I've heard some people say "heavy" and "light" internet usage. I don't know what to consider my usage. Most of my day is spent browsing, using forums, facebook, etc. I occasionally use YouTube, but not often enough for it to be regular. I don't usually use a lot of Flash websites or anything either. Something that just keeps me busy in front of the TV at home, at the Fire Station, or at work while waiting on updates to finish.
Also, I don't quite have the grasp of performance differences in rooting the actual hardware versus just using an SD card. I would love it if someone could provide a list of good SD cards for the job and/or explain the differences.
So to sum up, I need a tablet to have these features:
*LogMeIn or some other remote desktop capability
*Pinch-to-zoom browsing (does Miren Browser work?)
*A decent touch-keyboard
*Have decent battery life (during use and in sleep mode)
*Still have a decent and preferably stable ebook reader for school/study
*Touch screen sensitivity/functionality comparable or better than recent Android phones
So based on those needs, do you think I would do well with a NC? If you think I should get a NC, should I root and how? I have this bad habit of downloading woefully outdated installers that no longer work, so any updated resources you can point me to would be awesome.
Thanks in advance! If you need any further details from me I will answer as best I can.
