Tablets can be useful if you do the kind of work where you are regularly filling in preformatted forms. Inspections, shipping/receiving, sales and inventory are ideal applications. Some graphics people I know work well with a stylus and tablet, because they've already been working on Wacoms for years. Actually entering and editing text with only an onscreen keyboard, however, is a disaster. Checking your email and sending back short replies is one thing, but long, involved work? Forget it.

Just get another laptop, or a "convertible" model with a display that can be rotated into tablet mode.
