Needs Advice: Tablet vs. regular laptop

  1. I'm going to college in the fall and im having some debate between laptops.
    First Issue is:
    Laptop PC versus Tablet PC:
    -I like the fact that you can write onthe screen (beats using paper notebooks and have my notes saved automatically)
    -I like that it can be used to view movies more easily.
    -But mostly because of the fact that i'll be taking serious notes and I need the simplicity of having a tablet feature.

    I was eyeing HP's Pavilion TX1000 http://labnol.blogspot.com/2007/04/hp-pavilion-tx1000-convertible-tablet.html
    Around $1200

    I need good advice on tablets. I've read lots of reviews and its a break down the middle.

    Second Issue: I found an unbeatable deal on tigerdirect on a laptop :
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3119152&CatId=1897
    around $800 with extended warranty.

    This is an amazing laptop. a friend of mine who's going to college also just got his for graduation and it's stunning. 2GB of ram w/ 160 GB HDD and it comes with XP media center (not vista, hooray)

    For that price it's awesome I'm definately eying it. I need some more input on tablets vs. this.

    Tech experts help me out! i'm torn!

    Get the tablet lol. They are fun and since it has the keyboard built in, it is basically a laptop/tablet.
