    You would at the end of the day Honestly be better of with a netbook like me. Does all the basic Tasks and more than any tablet. plus you can type esaiar on it and do not have to phone mode when you are typing here and The most important thing....you can download torrents. Btw I do own a tablet now and thats why I am here to say they are not really all what they are cracked up to be.

    No way. My car has wifi and it shut the kids the fuck up. I use it at the baseball games and at my kids baseball games with the stat recorder.

    And for us asshole who play fantasy sports when you can't be around the computer all the time.

    I can just charge it in the car. Netbook would be a paint in the ass to deal with

    If you don't like a tablet, Splash says you're not an elite traveler.

    I have an iPad, but if I could turn back time I would have just got a cheaper tablet. All I use it for is the internet and some cheesy games.

    They are cool, but I would still have to have my notebook. No point in carrying both around.

    I have a tablet (and a PC and a smartphone) and I love my tablet.

    I use it when I'm watching TV on the couch or in bed, super lightweight and fast and quiet. Watching the game, grab the tablet, pull up some local news or porn, check facebook or message boards, etc.

    so much better than a loud, obnoxious laptop or a tiny phone


    Edit:

    It's also great for travel

    i don't have a practical use for an ipad,

    i make good use of my iTouch for music whilst outdoors exercising, contacts, etc.

    for all computing work .. i need use of a keyboard and enough power for any sort of programme. macbook fills the bill.




    btw, i read this article about a 'smart watch' earlier today: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-20961434

    Wrong. With a netbook you're just fooling yourself. It doesn't have the horsepower to run apps like office, quickbooks, etc. Fire up a video and try to surf the web on a netbook and enjoy stuttering video.

    My iPad does the single task I want super duper. I can easily check my email, surf the web, run the certified apps and etc. On the train, I can open my iPad instead of waiting for my netbook to power up. As an adult, the netbook keyboards suck dick, and so try and type a report on them. Yes, it has a keyboard, but my iPad case has a built in Bluetooth keyboard, so I can 45 it and take notes like a baller. Oh, and don't lose your wireless dongle or else your gonna have to stop in Starbucks to get data ( unless you buy a laptop with the cell embedded, but not many netbooks have them )

    I have an acer netbook that I'm considering giving to the dog, cause he would get as much productivity out of it as I.
