I'm searching for a tablet with a removable keyboard and a pen to write on it. I want to use it in university where I have to write handwritten notes during lectures and homeworks. I will have to use Linux on it (maybe a Windows Linux dual boot?). It should be relatively modern such that I can use it minimum 7 years. The price range would be maximum 1200 Euro (approximately 1400$).

    Are there any tablets with linux? Would 2-in-1 like lenovo yoga do? – Ott Toomet Nov 22 at 1:50
  • My first instinct with that kind of budget is a Surface devices; however, I'm a little curious as to why you want to run Linux given its relative dearth of productivity software. Is there a particular reason you want to use Linux? Is there a particular note-taking application you already use on Linux? – JMY1000 Nov 25 at 2:25
  • @OttToomet the lenovo yoga's look very interesting, I'm thinking about taking one of them – Lukas 2 days ago
  • @JMY1000 for some computer science lectures it is highly advantageous if I use linux, because all my tutors use it and then it is easier to compare results. Also for coding in general I prefer linux over windows. Thats why I would probably use a dual boot again, so that I can use windows for note-taking and linux for coding. – Lukas 2 days ago
  • @JMY1000 -- it very much depends on what you are doing. In my world (stats, analytics, machine learning, coding) I would say linux has more and better accessible productivity tools. Mac comes close and windows is lagging behind. – Ott Toomet 2 days ago
