Ray Posted April 16, 2005 Report Share Posted April 16, 2005 Am looking at converting my onsite reporting system to a digital system. Hardware seems to be my first choice. What kind of experiences have you all had with: Notebooks, Convertibles, PDA's, Tablets, etc? Pros and Cons of each? Would like to produce a Summary on site (to guide discussion of findings) and email report from site. Simple insertion of photos, etc. I'm guessing that Notebooks are powerful, easy data entry, relatively inexpensive, quick to print from, combersome to carry around. Convertibles may have the benefits of both Notebooks and Tablets. Durability? Tablets allow you to see nearly an entire page at a time (much like my book that I now use), easy to hand print on large screen, powerful, heavy at approx. 3 lbs., quite expensive. PDA's are inexpensive, light weight, easy to carry around, small screen making it difficult to hand print on screen; know where you're at; find your way around, slow to no printing capabilities without Notebook, etc. This is all speculation at this point since I have no field experience with any of it. All comments welcome. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
