What do I need to consider when choosing my tablet.

The tablet needs to meets the minimum hardware requirements.  However there are other things that you should consider such as:

  • Battery Life
  • Do you want to use the tablet for anything else
  • Weight

We have tested a number of tablets and found that in practice that weight is a major consideration, bearing in mind that you have to carry the thing around with you.  We selected the Asus Vivotab which in a weight comparison came out virtually the same as Pad/Clip board/Pencil/Rubber.  580g (Tablet) vs 564g and the battery life is enough to last the whole day.
