Definitely the tablet, if you get a convertible. I have a convertible tablet from Gateway and it's amazing. It's nice for quick notes to jot down, and you can also search your handwritten notes with the usual Find tool in MS OneNote and Windows Journal... More

Well a tablet PC does everything a laptop can, except it adds the ability of using handwriting recognition. That's why they're tweice as expensive. I'd say go with the tablet, unless it's much heavier. I've never used one.

Portability being important, I would suggest a laptop. Tablet PCs are very intuitive and are getting better, but at this point in time they are not capable of the same sort of power that Laptops are.

Since presentation is a key factor. Pick the Tablet PC With a Tablet PC you can do everything a Laptop can do, plus more, like interactive touch screen, hold it with one hand.... But, just in case you pick a laptop, try to see if they can give one with rotating screen. :-) Well, Good luck.
