I didn't know they made a tablet with a detachable keyboard.
A 7 inch screen seems to be just the right size for reading. It's just about the size of a book and I like to curl up with a book or the right size tablet.
I looked at your recommendations and couldn't find one with a 7 inch screen although I really liked the idea of a tablet with a detachable keyboard and TrackPoint. That got me thinking that I would like my tablet to work with a keyboard. It would be nice if they sold some kind of TrackPoint keyboard that nicely mounts a small 7 inch tablet. Unfortunately I found out that they don't make anything of the kind.
I chatted online with the Lenovo salespeople who were very helpful and didn't mind that I wasn't willing to buy anything until I had thought it over a while.
According to them Lenovo trackpoint keyboards
will work with their 7 inch tablets. There are also many tablet stands available on Amazon
. I plan on purchasing a TrackPoint keyboard and tablet stand and fixing them both to a board or something so that I can see the tablet screen easily when typing.
After looking around I finally decided on a Lenovo Tab 2 A7-20
. It's lightweight (and in my price neighborhood) so it should be good for reading which is mostly what I will be using it for.
Thanks for the ideas. Bob.
