I think of tablet as a cool toy to play with and do things in the go.

I would think Windows 7 is more stable for what OP wants to do than Android Honeycomb 3.0

also Honeycomb 3.0 is buggy as hell on the Nook Color, most people are using Gingerbread CM7 (thats what mine was on b4 i sold it last week)

Sure it will run windows 7 and all associated applications, but it doesn't have a keyboard, the battery life will not be anywhere near the eeepad with dock, it is a lot larger.

It can certainly do what the OP asked for, provided he doesn't mind carrying around a keyboard, but there are much slimmer, more affordable solutions.

Again, unless windows 7 on hand is a requirement, I'd go with a eeePad, or even a cheap Tegra Netbook and the nook color as a novelty.

I've been looking a lot at the splashtop business, and it looks like a great way to leave your fast, software laden PC at home and stay agile.

i would suggest the ipad, i use it regularly BUT i use it with logmein which offers an ipad app that will log in to any computer you set it up with and you have a way to pull your files or open programs on your ipad with it, ie Photoshop. I have heard and was told of a free one that is rumored to be better that i am trying out soon.


EDIT:

there are some decent free text editors out there to for the ipad. I use the keyboard dock when i go somewhere so i can type out long code.

I just checked out that TeamViewer app on my Android phone and linked it to my work computer (iMac also) and it works great. Very, very cool. Could actually make switching away from a full computer possible.

I know I could do my writing on a tablet (with keyboard dock of course), and I could at least play around with Photoshop via Team Viewer.

Look at the Iconia W500. Full Win7, 5+ hours on most simple apps. comes with keyboard dock (in U.S.), B&N Nook eReader apps. so much more powerful than an Android tab.
