Review: 12-inch Galaxy Note Pro is too big for its own good
Samsung's mega tablet wants to be both a tablet and a laptop, but it's too awkward for either purposeFollow @MobileGalen
If the 12-inch Galaxy Note Pro appeals to you as a PC-like tablet, frankly it makes more sense to spend the same -- or even a little more -- money on a Windows 7 Ultrabook or MacBook Air (just like it makes sense to skip a Windows 8 tablet, which also has major usability issues). You'll get a more ergonomic device that does more. If you want a tablet, don't let the "bigger is better" impulse lead you to a purchase you'll regret: Get a 10-inch model -- plenty of good ones are on the market, including the smaller Galaxy Note Pro models.
