Summary: After my first initial foray into tablet-land with an Asus transformer Windows 8 device I finally settled on the Samsung Note 10.1 after much research and playing in-store. Never a fan of the Mother-Apple approach to running my laptop media and seemingly everything else on my PC I knew I wanted an Android device that gave me the control and flexibility of running my laptop systems and device syncjng the way I wanted. Owning a Galaxy S3 and loving it sealed the deal. This tablet is a very natural extension of the S3's feel and I felt instantly at home and comfortable. It has taken a bit of work on my part but I've even now figured out how to sync my contacts, calendar, music, pictures and important documents between the tablet, phone and my two laptops...all using the cloud to keep everything current. What joy!
The capabilities of this tablet really are mind-boggling. I found it helful to watch Youtube videos on its capabilities several times before "I GOT IT". Once you understand the way to use multi-tasking, split screens and especially the S Pen you feel like a whole new universe has just revealed iteelf. I especially love answering emails by jotting a quick handwritten note and tapping Send. So much quicker and natural feeling.
This tablet is ideal for professionals (like myself) and students who want a rich tablet experience with full entertainment capabilities but with the sophisticated functionality of an advanced learning, record-keeping and comunication tool. It is worth every penny and one of the best purchases I've ever made!
