I am looking for a tablet than can be used to take notes, specially during in meetings on while I'm working and need to make a note of something. Can anyone tell me if this tablet will be a good device for this purpose? I'm mainly concerned with size (which I think might be too small for this) and responsiveness of the touch screen.

I'm also probably going to buy a stylus (it seems New Trent Limir Stylus is a very good choice) for writing my notes by hand.

Thank you for any input! :)

All depends how many notes you intend making and how big they are. No tablet, including the iPad, is good for taking copious notes unless you have a separate keyboard, due to the need to use the onscreen keyboard. So if you are just looking at creating say bullet points or reminders as opposed to full meeting minutes then this is as good as anything. Evernote is a good app for note taking that stores notes in the cloud and you can sync notes across multiple devices. Keyboard and touch screen on these devices is as good as any other tablet and a stylus makes use of the keyboard that bit easier. Ive used 2 or 3 different styluses and they all work well.

And what about using the stylus to make handwritten notes? I need to use some math notation and other non standard symbols. As for the bullet points vs more detailed notes, I'm looking for a more "I had an idea, let me take this note so that I don't forget later"-kind of thing, so I suppose it would work?

Handwritten notes are much trickier to make on any tablet due to the size of the stylus being similar to a very thick felt tip pen. i.e. very little accuracy. You would also need a more specialised app but im sure they exist just not seen any. If you want to do handwritten notes then i think youll be disappointed no matter which tablet you use. Pen and paper is the ultimate solution.

If the reason for doing handwritten notes is to record uncommon symbols then you may want to look at using a more specialised scientific keyboard. You can install lots of different keyboards to suit your requirements.

I tried a handwriting app (forget which one now) but the way I rest my hand was setting off touchscreen controls.
