I miss paper from time to time, from my school time. I can't draw that well, it's about input freedom. And I can't imagine not "being digital" for the long term. I like the possibility to work on my math deficincies "old school". In order for something to increase its chances to be useful, it has to be pleasent in use.
But my primary usecase is reading Java certification study guide. Current experience with narrow portrait mode (refurbished) 10.6inch Surface Pro 1st Gen (SP1), is still too suboptimal. Especially when I need the PDF navigation bar constantly in sight, instead of on/off and too much page resizing instead of just reading. And not being bothered by the narrow aspect ratio or just a tad uncomfortably small letters. Nor lower PPI. I can't get the 267~?PPI of the iPad4 out of my head, with its better portrait aspect ratio than my SP1.
A bigger screen without watering it down, and no excuse not to use it to "write/draw" anything, on the fly graphs and doodles, as well as crude diagrams that I can organize and decide what is worth making a "neat" digram or something else based on my doodles and notes. Onenote (evernote is also maybe a better option to look into) my notes can be searched through, finding what I did with the stylus ondemand. I'm not in a hurry for that. Just for reading. But I don't want yet another device other than Hi13 just because palm rejection is not acceptable. That would be a waste..
So I miss paper sometimes, yet don't want to be limited by it either, and I'm investing in a (complementary) product. I'm not setting any unachievable deadline for my interests. I do prioritise. The $100 +/- is not worth limiting my experience, in my case. For my usecase priorities. The Hi13 would be a lot in my hands or in view, ready for my whims. Not that much to be active on the forum nor overdoing "heavy multitasking".
'Neatnetz' is just my on the fly way of referencing a grouping of a neat (in the broadest sense) and wel organized "systems", those parts of the Internet. It's nothing more than that. I think Chuwi and the community in general is pretty neat too.
Edit: typo + clarity.
