Upcoming Holiday - Device Suggestions Please!
In September i'm going for my holiday of a lifetime to Japan(!) which will basically be 3 weeks of touring the courtry photographing (and possibly filming) as much as humanly possible. I'm in need of a device with which to keep in contact with the outside world, upload pictures and video to Facebook etc and keep me entertained during the various journeys to, from and around the country.
My requirements are: must be fairly light as i'll be doing a fair bit of walking around, must have good connectivity (wifi, possibly bluetooth but most importantly either full-sized usb slots or full sized sd card compatibility for data transfer), a keyboard is a nice bonus but not a deal breaker, a good battery life, movie and game-playing capabilities and good storage (either internal or external).
The way i see it i have 3 options - a tablet, a netbook/ultrabook or a proper laptop. A tablet will be nice and light, cheapish, should have good battery life and decent entertainment but will struggle with connectivity and storage. A netbook will be light, cheap, decent battery, decent connectivity but crappy entertainment. An ultrabook will be light, ok battery, good connectivity, decent storage, decent entertainment but stupidly expensive. And finally a laptop will have questionable battery life, be fairly heavy but have good storage, connectivity and full-on entertainment.
I think i've rambled on long enough, does anyone have any suggestions? Hmm and while writing this piece i found this today: http://www.simplyacer.com/Acer_Aspire_S5-391_Ultrabook_1203454.html, whatdo you guys think? :)
