iPad vs 2-in-1 laptop/tablet
December 31, 2013 6:41 PM Subscribe
My wife wants to buy a laptop that also converts to a tablet. She needs a good typing laptop for work (15 inch screen, nice keyboard) but she also dreams of using the tablet portion for sketching (like they do on Project Runway). She is not an artist; she just wants to draw a bit. I am concerned that the laptop/tablet combo will be less than ideal. I have heard that these tablets are not as sensitive as an ipad, and I am wondering what software she would use that would be better or as cheap as a $10 app. I think she should get a cheap laptop along with a used iPad. Does anyone have any firsthand experience one way or another?

In theory, couldn't I get a $300 laptop and a $300 iPad and still be better off than a $600 laptop? Or should I just suck it up and get her a 2-in-1 that is around $600-$800?
