Will it have two way USB? Plug and play with any OS, without itunes? If it can't do these, with many other standard features, then it will just be yet more Apple crap.

Maybe when Jobs pegs it Apple will improve?

If you're talking about market success, of course not. There are too many people eager to waste their money on things that have no real purpose but are cool. But if you want to talk about actual usefulness those toys can't come close to a tablet PC.

Since when does the i7-620M suck? Last I tried I was able to play borderlands on nothing but onboard graphics with one of them.


HP 2470p
- i7-620M
- i7-620M
Fujitsu T730 - i7-620M

And the sandy bridge ones are coming out soon too.

Market success translates to developer support, after market hardware and product support, and warranty type services. Perhaps you've overlooked the importance of market success.

Not sure how you can categorize one group of tablets useless and another group useful. They essentially do the same thing, which is provide you with mobile computing.

Um...you do realize you're comparing the ipad to PCs here, right? You know, as in x86 PCs, running anything you want from DOS to Win7 to *nix? You can't beat the developer and hardware support that the x86 platform has.

Again, you're comparing what's basically a media player and portable gaming device to a full blown laptop with a touchscreen and wacom digitizer. If you can't tell the difference between the iWork app vs a full blown MS Office, or between the dinky email application and Outlook, or between the "Pictures" app and Lightroom, then I guess....well I guess then you should just go and get an ipad. I'll be sticking to using applications that offer some real productivity.

Tablet PCs yes. I was mainly referring to after market products, everything from cases to docks. Etc.

The only problem with your flimsy argument is that a vast majority of the software you're talking about isn't developed for a touch interface.

Full blown laptops? Except for that whole keyboard part, huh. I'm willing to bet typing on one of those is far more painful than an ipad or xoom.

When I want to run full on office, or do any sort of heavy productivity work, I'll go sit at my desk with my desktop, because no tablet is well designed for that - just because of the ergonomics. But if you're using it as a complete PC replacement, which I'm sure you're not, then more power to you.

And yes, when I'm lounging on the sofa and want to check my email, yes, I'll stick to the "dinky" email app.

Clearly, you don't get it.

Ok, let's look at aftermarket products then. Newegg.com has 11 keyboards for the ipad, and 580 keyboards for the PC. They have 120 webcams for the PC, none for the ipad. Should I bring in mice, controllers, joysticks, spacenavigators, monitors, scanners, and printers into it too?

A point-and-click interface is identical to a touch interface. If you can use it with a mouse you can use it with a finger and/or pen. And when you're uncomfortable you can always swing the keyboard/touchpad out from underneath (at least on most of them).

Huh? iPads don't have keyboards, most tablet PCs do...

Well then like I said, get an ipad. I'll be lounging on my sofa and STILL doing productivity work.
