2. What sort of inputs do you require, if any? Would you like full-sized USB and SD card slots? Are microUSB and microSD ok? Do you require HDMI inputs? I plan to use an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse most of the time.
I'm looking for a budget PC that I will use principally at home connected to an external monitor, keyboard, mouse, and printer. Usage will mainly include light streaming, emailing, word processing, and general web surfing.
Occasionally I would like to add some hand written math formulas and notes to word documents. As long as the writing resembles the accuracy of writing text with an ink pen on paper, I would be content. I have no intention of using the pc to draw intricate or complex designs of any kind. I previously tried using a Wacom Bamboo tablet, but I could never get the hang of looking at the screen and writing on a separate tablet at the same time.
I also plan to use the device with the active pen during live online tutoring sessions - I have not yet picked out which online program I will use.
I checked out the list of digitizer hybrids and was surprised there are so many....even for my super low budget. So, I'm hoping you guys will help me refine my choices. So far here's my list, please let me know if I should add anything or any recommendations:
Fujitsu Stylistic Q704
Fujitsu Lifebook T734
Fujitsu Lifebook T902
Fujitsu Lifebook T904
HP Elitebook 2760
Lenovo Helix 2
Dell Inspiron 7000
Dell Latitude 7275
Slightly more expensive: Thinkpad Yoga 12 (seem on Craigslist for $250 with no accessories)
Just for perspective as I've used my nieces Surface Pro 3, how do these stack up?
I can get the Elitebook 2760 locally for well under $200 and I'm leaning towards picking one up, but will wait to hear from you experts. thx
