My Brother has been in the sign business for some time now, using plotters, flexisign and various other softwares to design and print anything to do with signs. He has a pretty beefy laptop, but a consumer model, which is fine for flexisign and softwares used for printing to plotters/cutters.
He has been asking about "pads"/"tablets". Is there a tablet that you would recommend for him to use, lets say flexisign 8 and/or Adobe Creative Suite 5. Or is a laptop the best option?
Is there anything newer and better now that we are nearing March of 2013? I am considering tablets... and have never even used a laptop for business purposes. We use FlexiSign 8.6v2, Picasa, many different Photo programs etc, along with Quickbooks and Office files.
Would Android OS tablets be able to handle any/many of these? Sounds like the Windows Tablet OS is kind of bloated and not as slick as the Androids much less iPads.
