I find it a good tool for review...but would not suggest you use it as your primary vehicle for building spreadsheets...use your desktop/laptop to build the spreadsheet.
I find the docs to go products better for reviewing work sent me by others.
I like the PB...has the best browser of all the tablets, IMHO.
I like the UI, the size and clarity of the screen.
I do not feel any tablet is a replacement for a laptop or desktop, but a useful adjunct when traveling or away from the computer assuming a wireless access point is available.
Keep monitoring the news about new releases and updates...by Sept, there will be a number of new tabs on the market at various price points, using Andorid 3.1, Win7 and PB may have Skype, Android interconnectivity worked out...giving you a wide range to choose from.
Hope that helps.
Thank you very much, I will look into getting a laptop, my dad said he may give me his as a gift, it would be ok for work but I doubt it would do well with casual games and/or web browsing, not to mention, I like the security that comes with RIM's products. So, the spreadsheets aren't good for actually doing work on you say, but let's say I ignorantly bought a playbook to replace a pc anyways. Would I be able to do work on the spreadsheets? Like is it not possible? Or is it just inconvenient? I'm not a fan of windows and I'd like avoid it if possible. I kind of like the Xoom, I may look into it but the Ipad isn't what I'm looking for really. Thank you for your comment.
