I had a rather bulky Toshiba laptop. With only 40mins bat life, so it was always plugged in social networking was a nightmare. Trapped on the settee by this gaming monster laptop, legs that would go numb from the weight. My wife used to laugh her head off with her little pink MSI netbook as I would desperately wiggle my feet to get rid of the pins and needles. I was so jealous and was on the verge of getting a netbook. Not a pink one though. Then I saw the tablets coming out and thought, why not give it a go. Being a PC nerd I do miss a proper keyboard but that said the tablet does have some great features.
No boot up to speak of
great media player for long journey (I do over 2 hours a day)
I do have a gaming desktop with a quad core and crossfire graphics cards and play black ops. Tablet will never replace that but then neither did the laptop.
So, from the comments so far the 10 inch google tablet (although not supported by google) but brought to market by DSG has found a niche!!!
It's surprising and I wonder if this tablet in it's various forms will make Apple wonder if their business model is under threat.....
I have always thought that the 10 inch tablet (or a bit bigger) was the sweet spot for the tablet form!
It seems that at £250 and with the mod's Paul has done this tablet has replaced the majority of the average browsing of user's from the traditional desktop and laptop platforms and without the tie in to Apple's 'walled garden' (that's a phrase not used since the 1st days of the 3 network when they stopped access to the internet)........
