      Thanks, Stosss. I understand. As you may have noticed, I decided to stick with the Mac environment. All Linux or all Mac are feasible---except with respect to Vim on the latter---but I'm not up for the hassles of figuring out how to combine the two.

      And like you, I may have to content myself to composing and editing on my other machine, a laptop for me. My experience is limited---about three days, now---but composing, let alone editing, even a sentence on the iPad is excruciating. With a keyboard it might be different, but I'm not there yet.

      My main reason for wanting a tablet was for reading and annotating pdfs, which with the combination of Dropbox and PDF Expert, looks to be no sweat.

      I don't know, if someone would give me a good price on a linux system, laptop and tablet, already configured to work together I might be tempted down the road, as my MacBook is getting a little long in the tooth these days.
