I want something I can use to write with away from home, for those days when I'd rather just chill at the Barnes and Noble next to work rather than going home or want to write during my lunch break, ect. It doesn't need to be good, just something that I can either add a decent keyboard to (for a tablet) or an old/used netbook. I need to be able to connect to the net so I can do the research that often accompanies writing, but beyond that it doesn't need to be fast or anything. I'm thinking a netbook might be a better idea since I saw some used ones from sellers with good ratings on amazon, and would prefer to be able to use word or the open office equivalent. for a tablet, I could always use google's internet based word equivalent, but I don't think that would be as reliable (and I'd rather not put my writings online as far as my book is concerned, even if it is under a password protected account).
Just thought I'd see if anyone had any suggestions or experience with cheap tablets/netbooks as its not something I'd done much research on. Mainly I just want to avoid buying a COMPLETE pos that will die in a year and I'd prefer to spend under $100. The higher I go above that, the longer I'll have to wait to get one.
Thinking of going with this because its not even $70 used including shipping, the seller as a good rating, and includes a new 6 cell battery:
