Default Re: New to the forum, some questions about playbook.

I'd agree with what's been posted above.

I don't know how limited the PlayBook Docs To Go spreadsheet is as far as functions, but I would not want to have to start from scratch on a complex job with it. I think you could probably do it, just it would likely be much easier on a computer with a keyboard, mouse, and large screen.

As far as the total system, I haven't had as many problems as some people have posted here and elsewhere, but there are bugs, no doubt. The good thing is the hardware is solid. The software will get better; we just wish it would get better faster.

My bottom line advice, if you are thinking about the PlayBook as your main "computer" for the majority of your needs, don't. It won't work. Even on campus, you may find you still need to carry a laptop. Maybe; maybe not. So, if you already have a laptop, the PlayBook will be a good addition. If you don't have a laptop, get that first, then the PlayBook if and when you can.
