If you write for a living I would get a laptop. My guess is that you would find writing on a tablet for more than a few sentences pretty annoying. With that being said, if you are really wanting the convenience of a tablet, then you can get an iPad case with Bluetooth keyboard built in. This could set you back another $60-$100 though.

my choice for you would be a laptop. for what you described, i feel like you could benefit from having a bigger keyboard and the ability to possibly play cd's and stuff like that. tablets are definitely convenient, but they do have limitations.
nowadays, though, you can probably get either a laptop or a tablet for nearly the same amount..so it's just about what fits your lifestyle better. maybe go to a computer shop and try them both out..see if one is too heavy..if one is annoying to type on...stuff like that. ooh..also check battery life..i think that plays a role too. good luck.

If you only get one, I would get a laptop there is much more you can do.
I have both, and sometimes when I can't do some thing on my tablet I pull out my laptop.
I use the tablet for quick
Searching on deals plus

I have an iPad, netbook and notebook. iPad is great when i'm on the go and have to something quick to check up on or write. I use a netbook or notebook if i have to do more writing or ripping or streaming. So depending on your use, if you can get by with a tablet, go for it. iPad 3 announcement soon should drop the price of the iPad2.

If you have to pick one I'd say a laptop ,a laptop is a necessity & a tablet is a luxury ,you certainly can think of many things you can do on a laptop that you can't do on a tablet .plus a laptop priced the same as a tablet ;would be much more powerful and more equipped
