Tablet recommendations? I know this isn't really the place to ask but I trust you devs.

I'm just about to start back college and I'd like to have a light carry around for days I don't need my laptop. I love my 17" Dell, it's a beast and that's why I bought it but damn it's overkill for taking notes and running little things through a bash terminal. A tablet and keyboard seems like a nice idea.

Ideally, I wanna run Linux. But I'm not sure if there's a commercial tablet that facilitates OS changes easily out of the box.

No iPad. Not an apple fan, and it's just not what I'm after.

The MS surface seems pretty good, but I haven't looked too deeply into replacing the OS.

I just want a nice Linux tablet. I dunno.

Thanks!

    I have a Shield Tab. I used to use it for bits and pieces of dev work, but theres no good IDEs on Android really :( Good screen quality though, and pretty fast with good battery life after the first few boots
