I'm thinking of getting myself a new tablet so I can do my troubleshooting. I thought about getting an IPad, but when i got the chance to play around with it, its nothing more than an oversized IPod. I thought about getting a Motorola Xoom, but it freezes when I tried doing a remote web. Currently I use my laptop, but I like to have something that is more compact. So any opinions of whats a good tablet that I can do troubleshooting remotely.

Unless you go with an actual tablet computer, which are quite pricey, I think you are essentially only going to get an oversized iPod/smartphone type device.

Thats a bummer. I guess I'll just wait until they make a powerful device that is portable and affordable. In the meantime I'll stick with my laptop. Thanks for the respond

You might want to consider a netbook. It's more capable than a tablet and more portable than your laptop. I've been very pleased with the Acer Aspire One netbook that I purchased refurbished for $200. It has about 90% of the capability of a full-sized laptop.
