What is the best device to take notes digitally? I am a student and future teacher. All of my textbooks are electronic (formatted in .pdf files, microsoft word, and powerpoint). I am looking for a device which allows me to take notes digitally and read my textbooks as well as other e-books. I wish to do the following: Open a program to a blank page and start taking notes digitally using a stylus in a process that mirrors using a pen and paper as much as possible. If possible, I would like the device to have a "button" to "translate" my markings into digital typewritten fonts if I wish my notes to be typewritten. Open a program that allows me to view my text books and highlight, underline, or write on those documents little notes as I see fit. Use the device in such a way that most of the documents I use when I get my job as a teacher will be digital rather than not. Of course any other functions that are available on the device would be great. I have been looking into Android Tablets, netpads, etc. But I cannot get a clear answer as to if any of these devices will provide the functionality I wish it to have. I am looking to spend around $150. Can you make any recommendations?
