ASUS Transformer

<p>My old Macbook is literally falling apart, and I'm looking to replace it. I never even use it anymore because the battery life sucks (lasts 1-2 hours). I stopped using it completely after my first semester in college and I'm a sophomore now, so keep in mind that anything would be better than this. </p>

<p>I'm strongly considering getting an ASUS transformer as my main personal computer. I know, it sounds weird that I'm looking to get a tablet as my main computer, but here's why I think I should get it:</p>

<ul>
<li>I can take notes for my Engineering classes with this thing. Yes, I know pencil and notebook works best, but it's a perk, I guess.</li>
<li>The office suite is compatible with Microsoft Office. I have some old version of Microsoft Office on my Mac that has compatibility issues all the time. I've never gotten used to it either because it's just aggravating by nature.</li>
<li>Even when my Macbook was working fine my first semester, I didn't game at all, and I hardly even browsed the internet. I don't care if the specs suck on this ASUS. - I want something that's actually portable and not chained to the outlet on my wall. ~16 hours of battery life sounds freaking amazing. I didn't know that was even possible, it's like I've been living under a rock. It's also half the weight of my Macbook, so that's really nice.</li>
<li>I like to draw, and a quick search brought me to a Photoshop app. I miss having a Wacom tablet, so this purchase would kill two birds with one stone.</li>
</ul>

<p>Overall, it looks relatively cheap and it's way more than enough for my minimalist needs.</p>

<p>Any other suggestions based on what I've said? Any advice is appreciated because I don't know much about computers :P</p>

<p>Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>Wait for the new Transformer Prime? Even better with quad-core.</p>
