pretty bold and ignorant statement for someone as gifted and "open minded" as yourself.
@OP. another idea: buy a cheap rootable $150 tablet to decide if an expensive one is for you. personally I think current tablets are overpriced right now because they are still in the early gimmick phase. people might argue that but it's true. I've been watching tv prices for years and they were pretty stable for a few years leading up to 3d but prices for lcd and even led have dropped a lot now a year after 3d has become a norm.
also, tablet hardware is updating so fast a brand new $500 tablet is old before you get it (again some people will argue that but i'm looking at the big picture). might as well wait for the hardware race to reach a level you KNOW you'll be comfortable with and by then hopefully tablets will have come down in price.
