    Hmm interesting.

    Like Nathan said I need a reason to justify the expense. I might have one now...just got my hefty tax return in the mail yesterday
    Shit
    Forgot to do my taxes

    Yeah you're absolutely right about that. That's exactly what I used to do before I got one. Only advantage now is that now my phone lasts a couple of days without charging and I got tired of reading documents on my phone screen and zooming all the time. To each their own because there is honestly not much to justify it.
    True true

    I have much less eye strain since I've been using the Playbook, vs my iPhone

    After browsing on a smartphone for a long time, I look like a zombie

    The bigger size of a tablet screen is much better for one's eyes


    Also + 1 on the phone's battery

    what's so clumbersome about it? Just because it's a few pounds heavier?

    IMO ppl will have both laptops and tablets.

    No a tablet cannot replace a laptop. But a tablet is useful in some scenarios.


    I disagree with ppl that say one replaces the other
    Laptops are very cumbersome. I always have to sit upright with it, it slides off my lap sometimes, it gets hot and can hang the system by overheating, my legs falls asleep, gotta carry a heavy ass bag with it with all of the accessories along with another bag for other unrelated items, the stupid brick, it's pounds heavier, it's slow if you don't upgrade ram, no touchscreen because trackpad is annoying sometimes, ect.

    All in all, my laptop is forgotten. I don't even know where it is.

    A tablet can replace a laptop in some cases. Specially considering that a lot of people don't need the hardware of a laptop and prefers to have more mobility.

    Since I got my Photon I use it more than my Touchpad. I still use my Touchpad - especially for books. I can't replace my laptop with either because I need the power of the laptop + windows.

    I really want to get an Ultrabook, though.

    Just offering some counterpoints here...

    T

    Laptops are very cumbersome. I always have to sit upright with it, it slides off my lap sometimes,
    Because you don't have to hold the laptop with one hand.

    it gets hot and can hang the system by overheating,
    This isn't an issue with newer laptops. My Alienware laptop never gets hot enough to be uncomfortable even when gaming. And the performance will still blow away a tablets.

    my legs falls asleep,
    Stop carrying a desktop replacement. Your legs won't fall asleep with a sub 15" laptop.

    gotta carry a heavy ass bag with it with all of the accessories along with another bag for other unrelated items,
    As opposed to not having those accessories available because... they won't work with the device? When I take my laptop with me I usually have just the laptop and headphones. Who forces you to take everything with it that makes it so heavy?

    the stupid brick,
    Why are you bringing your power cable with you?

    it's pounds heavier,
    Again, stop carrying a DTR.

    it's slow if you don't upgrade ram,
    The original iPad is slow. Stop comparing old laptops to an iPad 3.

    no touchscreen because trackpad is annoying sometimes, ect.
    Meh, sometimes touchscreen is better, sometimes trackpad with mouse buttons is. A wash here.

    Yeah, I saw a tablet yesterday in an office and the screen + viewing angles were insane. Think it was an iPad 2.

    @ cryhavoc, Besides gaming, what else can a laptop do that can't be done on a tiny slab? I watch movies on it in crystal clear fashion. All of the apps on the tab replaced the programs on my laptop plus more. Memory isn't an issue since I have the cloud and 2 cards in it. Word Processing isn't a problem. The tab is lighter than the lightest laptops. To charge, a simple usb cord. No brick. Tabs fully charges in 35 minutes and lasts just as long or longer than a laptop. It can EASILY replace a laptop, a desktop no.

    two textbooks and a relatively light laptop is still heavy. My TP is a "heavy" tablet and is still 4 pounds lighter than my light laptop. If you add my BT keyboard, I am still saving 3 lbs, but if you add the power brick, I am back up to a 4 lb difference. It doesn't sound like a lot, but it helps. Also, despite being newer than my TP, I use my laptop about 10% of the time, while I use my TP the other 90. In fact the only time that I can think of that I use my laptop is if I am sitting on the couch and want to pound out a paper (literally when I am setting it on my lap).

    @ cryhavoc, Besides gaming, what else can a laptop do that can't be done on a tiny slab?
    Any heavy user-oriented task is going to be impossible on a tablet. Go ahead and try coding/programming or even sending out long detailed email on one. Just because it's possible does not make it a good choice for the task, and the touchscreen editing software is still comparatively limited.

    It can EASILY replace a laptop, a desktop no.
    I disagree, but to each their own. Laptops are simply more powerful, flexible, and versatile right now, if for no other reason than the fact that they support about a trillion USB devices that you can use for virtually any purpose. I still expect the tablet market to continue to grow, but I think they will really come into their own in another form, as right now they are undeniably less than ideal to hold and use. Heck, people bitch about the screens on larger Android phones being too large to be comfortable with smaller hands.

    Once we evolve the mechanism necessary for input, then I will be first in line for a tablet. Until then I'm fine with my 4 pound laptop that gets 6+ hours of battery life. Oh, and it plays Oblivion maxed out. Not too shabby.

    took the words right from my keyboard
    Most cars we buy are medeocre products. Most food we buy is medeocre, at best (see, Fast Food).

    iProduct's medeocrity is its strength. It isn't intimidating or overwhelmiing. It does a few things well, few things horribly, and the gutter-bumpers are in place for the most part...

    I am not sold on the tablet form factor yet either. However, they are good for content consumptions for enough people where it is the consumer product de jure...

    On point. Again, between my desktop and my phone, I can do all the things that a tablet can do and more. I have a more portable product with my phone and I have my desktop that will do all the things that a tablet can do and more, with more power.

    this is probably true now. but not a few years ago. Honda/Toyota's were the cream of the crop with Lexus being fine, fine luxury cars. Now they're shit, it's true.

    I think it depends on industry. Some industries such as mobile device, cars, music are pure mediocrity today, but they degraded over time.

    Right, a screen who's resolution is so high, it takes a dump on your 55" LED tv's resolution is all hype?

    of course it's a nice screen. Don't get me wrong.

    but it's far from the "revolutionary" retina technology that will make you go wow! that the Apple hype machine preaches
