That makes sense, but most students don't do that. The majority can get buy on low end machines.

Tablets are overpriced, so netbooks are a far better tool for the average student. They're much cheaper (half the cost) and better spec'd, giving the student more functionality.

I have both a netbook and a tablet. If I had to choose between the two, I'd take my netbook in a heartbeat.
