My System Specs

Default

I had a good portion of this discussion with MAC the other day, but I'm really not impressed with the direction tablets are taking.

I was hoping for a tablet style netbook with a real OS that could replace my aging P4 laptop, but it appears that the tablet manufacturers (other than ASUS) are marketing it more as a "Smart Phone with larger Screen" than as a PC with smaller screen. Instead of a low power PC with full windows functionality, we're being offered $400 - $600 4G internet browsing devices that will require either a monthly subscription or the purchase of many apps to get reasonable functionality.

I want something I can slap W7 onto.
