My System Specs

Default Transformer Prime and Excel

A guy I work with is looking at getting a new laptop or tablet in the near future. He wants something light and portable, but also with a decent camera for skyping.

Not being to up to date on the light and portable scene (G73 man myself), I thought I'd ask for some advice on his behalf.

The other absolute is that he has to be able to open and modify excel files or spreadsheets. Obviously a proper netbook running windows can do that, but can the new android tablets?

I'm thinking a transformer prime is his best bet (staying away from and ipad at the moment), but any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks much all,

Android has a office suite that works fairly well. It can open basic excel stuff but for more complex won't happen.
