Neo or Tablet
I posses both an Alphasmart Neo and an iPad 2, and a rooted Nook Touch. Here is my quandary, though "quandary" is perhaps an exaggeration: which to use when traveling. The Alphasmart is rather bulky, but it has a better keyboard than any Tablet. One of the reasons why I think about this is this post about the Neo 2. But the keyboard on some tablets is very good. I bought the Alphasmart Neo many years ago. Whether I would buy it now for $169.00, while there are perfectly good tablets available for $199.00 (like the Galaxy Tab 2) is a moot question. I wouldn't! But since I have one already I think I will use at home, away from my main computer as a "distraction-free" writing machine. We'll see.
