For work I'm thinking about moving away from writing in notebooks during meetings and am wondering how others have approached this, particularly in terms of hardware although software suggestions also welcomed. At various times I have made a lot of use of Evernote or OneNote to keep track of things, but when in a meeting I find it a bit socially off-putting to be typing away on a laptop (often mistaken for ignoring the meeting and catching up on email). I'm assuming a tablet is the way to go, with either a stylus and/or small keyboard, but perhaps something hooked up to a smart phone would work and eliminate the need to carry another device which would be nice. I won't be replacing my laptop, so for tablets I'm looking at something on the cheaper/smaller side. I'm wondering how awkward using a stylus or small keyboard is after some practice (testing some in stores, I find both a bit cumbersome), and what other things I should be thinking about. I'd be curious to hear about people's experiences with this and any advice would be much appreciated.
