Are you going to actually state one of these mysterious "advantages" you're talking about, or are you going to just keep acting like I haven't used one so that you don't have to.

Oh yeah, your logic that is comparing a tablet to an 8 pound laptop. Go ahead, name me an advantage of a tablet over a netbook/laptop.

I'll say it again, unless you are using a tablet while standing, there are no advantages over netbook/laptop. If you're going to be using it while literally standing why wouldn't you just use a smartphone?

You can set a tablet on your kitchen counter and just pick it up on the go.

Tablets don't burn your lap if you laying down on the couch with it.

Tablets have a battery life of 4:1 versus a laptop. You don't have to plug it in after watching a movie.

Tablets are much easier to take on airplanes.

A good tablet is $400-$600. A good laptop starts at around $1000+.

LOL

My netbook cost $250, the battery lasts 10.5 hours, I can switch the battery once its dead to another one giving me unlimited battery life, it does not burn me when I use it on my lap for 4+ hours at a time, it fits on an airplane and a kitchen counter!

I might be buying one primarily for ebook reading and light surfing or when I cannot use my normal dekstop in any given situation.

Using a tablet to read would probably be a LOT better since I find even reading pdf's and such on my desktop screen annoying as is.

Just don't know whether or not I should get a dedicated ebook reader or one of these in case I want to use the internet or do whatever else it is that this does.

It's more of a matter of accuracy and games. I find the touchscreens to get in the way of gaming and text selection ect. I think its great the the NGP, or sony's next PSP has the touch surface on the back of the device so you're not covering what you're suppose to be looking at.

As opposed to having to look at the keyboard to know where I am pressing, touch screens are more like putting the screen on my keyboard so I can't see what I'm doing while I type. Does that make sense?

Again, if you've ever used a tablet before, you'd understand that touching the touchscreen does not get in the way at all.

You're never going to understand what us tablet-lovers speak of until you use one for yourself

ESP, what you don't realize is that tablets are meant for a laid-backed, easy to use experience. I used to think like you: why would anyone want an oversized iphone? It's got the hardware of a smartphone, the software of a smartphone, but is bigger? And then I used one...

Your $250 netbook that has 10.5 hours is a total stretch, but that's beside the point. What did you put on there? Windows 7? XP? Linux distro? Whatever it is, I can guarantee it's bloated more than any tablet on the market. The hardware in your netbook is not suited for a clunky OS. Tablet-based OS's, however, are designed to be lightweight. Using a fully-endowed OS like Windows is NOT meant to be put on anything smaller than 13.3", or anything weaker than an dual-core processor with a boatload of memory.

Sitting without a table, or laying on the bed makes using a laptop very troublesome. Even though I've used laptops for the pasted few year, the trackpad is the slowest pointing device ever. With a touchscreen, you can bounce around webpages and with minimal effort. And an OS based around a touchscreen makes the entire experience very laid back.

I've used touch screens and tablets for years man. I would not be posting this stuff based on pure speculation. The touch screens do get in the way. Why do you think all the focus on software has been on the UI? Because touch screens are such an obstacle that softwear developers are spending most of their time just trying to make their apps usable on them!

I could just be crazy but I don't think so. But then again if I'm crazy what I think could be.... crazy.
