What are the differences between a convertible tablet (like a laptop) versus a slate tablet? Is the convertible pretty much a miniture laptop whereas the screen can spin and flip up so you can sketch, etc... and spin back so you can use the keyboard too? How do you type on a slate say out in the field, without using a wireless keyboard? Like, if you wanted to get into ACI Research (for comps) in the field, could you do this with the pen or do you need a keyboard and mouse? If with a pen, would you write the address on the screen instead of typing it and find it that way? What else can you tell me about tablets? Who is using which kind and is it saving you time in the appraisal process?
