I'm hoping someone somewhere can give me advice about tablets. I'm considering purchasing one, but I know absolutely nothing about them. I've mostly been looking at the Microsoft Surface Pro 2, because I would love to be able to use Word and Powerpoint and have a keyboard, but I don't really know what or how to compare tablets. There seems to be a huge amount, and I'm not at all clear on the capabilities and functions of them all.
Basically, my needs are the ability to show a digital copy of an art portfolio (so the screen needs to be pretty sharp), blogging or website editing (if that's even a thing that can be done on a tablet?), and the ability to access and reply to emails and other social networking stuff (like facebook and twitter). I'd like to be able to store documents and things either on the tablet or be able to use a flash drive with it if possible.
As I approach the end of school and the beginning of a freelance career, I need to build a major online presence and be able to market myself anywhere I go, which is where I hope a tablet will help. But...honestly, I'm a few hundred years behind in the technology department and am way out of touch with what stuff can do these days.
So I guess my question is: based on my needs, is the Surface Pro the way to go, or are there other (hopefully cheaper) options out there?
Thanks for the help!
