I own an iLiad, so I can really only speak to that.

1. Yes, to a certain extent. It does not create text files, but rather "vector" files that record your pen strokes. You can use optional PC software to convert those files to text files.

2. No.

3. Yes, and no. It's possible, with a hack, but eInk updates so slow, you probably won't like it - depending on what sites you go to.

3.1 It depends. The browser is full featured, but may not be able to do everything.

Right now, these devices are pretty much focused on being eBook readers that maybe, sort-of, could do some laptop functionality.

If you are looking at replacing your laptop, I don't believe the current crop of eInk devices will serve your needs.
