    As many of you guys are far more technically inclined than I am, I was hoping you might know a bit more than I do on what is currently available in the tablet market.

    In essence, I'm looking for a tablet that I can take quality handwritten notes on, on blank documents as well as PowerPoints, PDFs, and the like. It'd be nice if some sort of voice recording software was included, as well as being able to use Microsoft Office, but those (especially the latter) are definitely secondary concerns.

    Oh, and if it could have at least 3 hours battery life and come for 600 dollars or less, that would be beautiful. So, does such a monster exist, or should I just try to settle for something a little lesser (or bump up my budget, I suppose)?

    How big of an issue is size? I've seen the Thinkpad X220t / X230t (tablet versions of a full laptop) go for $550 used on the Lenovo Outlet.

    Otherwise I'm not sure. I think the quality handwritten note thing might throw you a bit, since the few tablets I've used haven't been ideal for that.

    Then again I'm not super familiar with the tablet market.

    Edit: Lenovo Yoga 11" might work for you -- not sure how accurate the input is for note-taking, but it's an option around your price range. Just look up some reviews on pen input?

    Cheers on the quick response! Thanks, I'll look into to Lenovo. I hadn't really considered them; I know some people who swear by them, and others that hate them. Still, definitely worth looking into!

    I'll swear by their Thinkpad X, T, and W-series lines -- that's about it. The others aren't as high quality imo. Good luck!
