I have been looking for a new machine for a while now and have no luck settling on anything. I recently built a new gaming desktop based off haswell and plan to use it for the more intense stuff such as gaming and larger class stuff. I am currently in college and will be using what ever i get as a mobile way of web, email, reading, doc editing, and etc. I have my eye on a few products and really need help deciding what to do. I already use google drive and docs for some papers and thing for school from my phone and desktop and enjoy using them.
Second, the HP Slatebook x2. I know it is not out yet but it looks promising but I am concerned that its extra features would not be a large enough benefit over the Nexus 7 since it cause over a one hundred more. http://www8.hp.com/us/en/ads/x2/slatebook-x2.html
I have a nexus 7 (2013), i get digital versions of all my text books on it and they're really easy to read with the amazing screen it has, web and email is great on it, i'd say doc editing would be it's weak point, i have a laptop as well for when i need to do that stuff, but the tablet means i don't need it most of the time. For basic editing, it works, but to do special formatting and long papers, get something with a keyboard and decent word processing software.
