Default New to the forum, some questions about playbook.

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, I just joined the forum after spending some time reading on it, I'm very impressed with the level of support on the forum and the help people recieve for their questions.

I have quite a few questions about the playbook. I can't find answers to most of these questions, so please, bear with me. I will try to keep it as brief as possible. I've looked at all tablets so far and am confident about the playbook being the best for what I want.

Ok, so, I'm going to university for my first year next year and am doing a BBA with an honours in accounting. For this I will need a word processor, a spreadsheet and a powerpoint, everything the playbook has. I also only care about those things, playing with some apps (apps don't matter too much to me) and surfing the web and some media things like videos and music so I feel that the playbook could easily replace a pc for me. However, I called futureshop to ask questions and the answer I got about the spreadsheet to go was that you could only review information, not actually put info into it and do much with it. Is this true? It seems odd that you can only review things on it. I would really like something I can do my accounting work on and I'd like people's opinions on the spreadsheet to go, would it be good for accounting work?

Also, I've read a lot on the forums and other sites about problems with the wifi not working properly, internet not working properly like pages not opening all the time, videos not always working and the bridge not always working. I've read about other minor glitches. This may be a dumb question but those will be fixed in updates right? I won't be purchasing the playbook until about september or october so I hope the bugs are fixed but ultimately, I would like to know if this playbook will be good for a business class in University. I really hope it is, I love RIM and their products so far.

I'd also like some opinions from people who own the playbook, do you like it? or dislike it? In your opinions, is it worth buying?

Thank you all, all opinions and comments are welcome, both negative and positive. Sorry for the long post but I have a lot I need answered, I've never bought a product so close to release, I usually wait for a few new models to come out. Again, thank you.
