Living Room / Re: Best note-taking setup with tablet and keyboard?
« on: January 03, 2014, 06:42 AM »
Hehe we keep looking. The main advantage of the netbook for me is the size. It's my digital moleskine! As my main concern is writing, I would pick up a netbook over a tablet anytime.

I do a lot of writing, most of it txts (writemonkey!) synced through dropbox. I also have some Scrivener projects, synced through dropbox. As for notes, Wiznotes takes care of keeping them always synchronized among machines. I tried simplenote more than once, but I had constant synchronization woes and lost information I wish I hadn't.

I additionally backup all of these to the amazon servers with Cloudberry Backup.

@Paulo
Which netbook do you have? All the Windows (XP and 7) netbooks I tried, were not instant-on.

I have an old Samsung NC215PD1 Atom 2Gb 500Gb.

You are right, a hard start will take those Windows 7 usual seconds, but after the thing is booted you may close and reopen the lid and it's really start on. The battery lasts about 7 hours, so I rarely have to boot it up, just recharge it every now and then. I use it everywhere :Thmbsup:

Hence netbooks, laptops etc. that require boot-up are not suitable.

You must consider that nowadays most netbooks (like my little Samsung running Windows 7 Home) don't require boot-up at all. You just open the lid and start working. In fact I've chosen a netbook instead of a tablet because I use mine mostly for writing, and the sturdiness of the keyboard was priority one in my own list of requirements.

As for notetaking, I use Wiznote -- cloud-synced but with full local access.

I haven't messed about with the plugins at all (not trialled them yet)

You should definitely give it try; most plugins are installed and activated by default.

I'm using this and I love it!

In my Windows 7 netbook Wiznote used to perform quite slow: 3-5 seconds for the main window to appear when I activated it.

I had better results after disabling some unused plugins and restarting the program.

Go Tools > Plugin Manager and disable all unnecessary plugins.

The list of plugins I have disabled:

  • Copy to another account
  • CHM Maker
  • Import Evernote
  • Outline
  • Speech
  • Markdown
  • Zoom
  • MathJax
  • Blogtools

Don't forget to restart the program!

Much faster now  :Thmbsup:
