iPad is pointless. real tablets hasnt come out yet. XOOM is nice but ASUS' awesome tabs will rape everything else.
because it uses honeycomb RIGHT.
they also have a full blown core i5 tablet with like 2GB ram iirc.
uses windows 7 too.
ur in denial bro. this isnt 2000 anymore! welcome to the next gen of computing etc.
but ipads are pointless. they are still only good for web browsing and watching porn conveniently in bed while jerking off simultaneously.
Mad? Hardly. And if they can scale it down enough, then you could put it on a netbook, which is just as portable yet more functional. While the onscreen KB's are decent, they're still nowhere near as fast as a real KB, even if it is only 75% of normal size.
I have always thought that tab's are useful in certain circumstances, like for a nurse making rounds at a hospital for instance. But for the layperson, really silly IMO. I used an iPad and really, it's just a huge iPod. Has no more functionality than an iPod touch.
Now if some manufacturer, made a netbook that had a rotating screen and could double as a tab, then we're talkin. Hell they could even make a slide out one like on some smart phones.
