@trueblue14:  I may be in the minority but, if you need to work on educational presentations, I would get a laptop. I am an instructor at a community college. I bought a tablet and ended up losing it because I never used it. Way easier to just use my computer. If you want something easier to move around, the new Windows tablet/computer may be your best option?

Macbook pro or air or an iPad if you want a tablet!

If you’re doing a lot of typing you might be better off with a laptop instead.  Honesly for the things you use it for you could grab a mid priced one from Walmart or Best Buy (though I’d get one on sale!) and likely be perfectly happy for at least a few years, likely five.  Specifically brands like Acer, ASUS, and Toshiba (my favorite!).

If you want a tablet get an iPad.  Their success is built on “Here’s this device that works really well and is easy to use”.  Even though I love Android for me, I think Apple is great at what they do too.

RE: Android.  It’s an operating system (OS) like Windows is an OS, so the version and the device (there are literally thousands) it’s on makes a big difference as to how it performs… like for Windows there’s differences in Windows 98, XP, 7, 8, etc and then even the same version (say 7) will run better on different PCs because of their hardware.  Android is an OS for phones and tablets and has a higher learning curve than Apple devices but also a lot more flexibility… but with flexibility comes more possible issues which I’m guessing you don’t want to deal with, nor do you have to worry about the right hardware (device) or version of Android. 🙂
