you will need a laptop. tablets have no internal memory. the keyboard and screen are too small for office work. they are good only for web browsing. i have the kindle fire, ipad, toshiba tablet, and 2 android tablets. they are good for reading books,and streaming video. the androids are worthless. get a small 12 inch laptop. avoid tablets and netbooks.

I agree with R. Duncan, as a tablet is mainly good for browsing the web and watching videos. You will as a matter of fact need a laptop.

I would go with an Aspire One. I currently own the AMD version of this laptop, and it's quite nice. Surprisingly fast and portable. (

Please do know you will have to buy Office separately.

Also, if you're not completely restricted to Office, you can get a Chromebook. You can store Word Documents on Google Docs, and they are very fast due to the low requiring OS.
