To Tablet Or Not To Tablet? That is the question!

I know this must seem like a minor problem, especially when thinking about characters, character development, plot integration, suspense and a thousand other things an author must keep in mind when writing a novel, bit still, this bothers me.

What to write on? I mean, should I write on the PC at home? On a laptop? A tablet?

This is more complicated than it seems at first sight. On a previous post I wrote about taking notes which I do on my Samsung Galaxy S2 which is good for notes but not for writing, naturally. I do own an LG T380 which is great. It has a 13" screen, 8 cell Lithium Ion battery and all the other goodies. But even though it is light, it is still cumbersome. I need to carry it in a separate bag.

So, I was wondering about a tablet. I need a tablet with a keyboard, naturally, which leaves me the Asus Transformer or the Samsung Galaxy Tab with a keyboard dock.

Then, I'll have the mobility I need and the ability to write with comfort on a full sized keyboard when I need.
But sill, isn't the laptop more comfartable for working? It's got a larger screen than the tablets? But I can take the tablet wherever I go?

Last but not least is the Kindle 8.9. Does it have a keyboard and writing apps?

Confused, this author is. Trust in the force he must.
