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.

Ya I guess I'll have to do that, I was hoping to replace a laptop, but I think I'll get a playbook or other tablet for fun, sort of as a reward for going to uni. Thank you.
