Tablet for grad school & research
I'm gonna be starting graduate school soon and am also a research assistant. I'm looking for a tablet to use to collect data (patients fill out survey via tablet, or I input for them) as well as graduate school work - papers, research, presentations, etc... I'd like something with good battery life and a nice screen. I keep looking at Microsofts Surface tablets and they look nice, though I'm not sure the difference between RT/surface/surface pro. I'm really not familiar with other tablets that run android so not even sure where to begin looking.
I'd like to get one under $600. I think MS offers some student discounts on their Surface tablets but was wondering what general opinion is on their quality/price.
Any input would be appreciated, thanks!
Doing a little looking I'm also interested in this ASUS Book T100, Galaxy Tab, and Nexus 7.
