I know this topic has been discussed many times, but I would like a survey from a technical group of people about the purchase of a TabletPC.

Currently I am a pharmacy student.  I am considering the purchase a tablet.  I would not be doing much development work, but instead would use the device for viewing lecture notes, articles, internet usage (Blackboard for anyone familiar with the system) and other various tasks.  Obviously since I give almost all my money to college, I do not have an unlimited fund for this purchase.

What can people recommend as a good tablet for this kind of application?

Thank you
