Let me explain my new job first. What I do is analyze images and enter data. It can be 100-300 images an hour. Accuracy and speed is important, as with many jobs. I now work from home and make my own hours. However I don't want to stay indoors or at home all the time, or I'll become a hermit. I already feel myself getting lazy because I no longer have to bike to work. (I have a car, but I rarely use it to commute) I was looking for either a large tablet or a laptop. They are both similar in price $500-550 with tradeoffs on specs. I plan to bike around town and find quiet spots to work. I will be tethered to my phone or using wifi if available. The Samsung 12" tablet has a 2560 x 1600 res screen, where as a 15" laptop of similar price has 1920 x 1080. I tried to use my Nexus 7, but the size is not good for what I do and I don't want to zoom images in often, which can waste time. I think the higher res and DPI screen of the tablet will benefit me for the work that I do. I see refurbished Galaxy Tab 12.2" tablets for $450, which make it even more appealing than a laptop. Also I will be using a physical keyboard, but a tablet + keyboard is still lighter than a laptop. Thoughts? I understand that there is a lot of hate for Samsungs bloatware, but at the moment, there are not many other 12" options.
