My System Specs

Default

Oh, I agree in that I'm in the minority, but as a cell phone luddite (I own a paygo motorolla that only gets turned on when I want to make a call out, and that's seldom), what's being offered isn't what I'm looking for. I gave up on FF when it was first released because of the "app" style model that required me to configure every little bloody thing, and I feel exactly the same way about what I want in a portable PC.

My current P4 laptop does 95% of what I want a PC to do, and I see no reason why somebody can't offer a tablet replacement for it using the new(er) low power procs/graphics that would blow it out of the water. Unfortunately that doesn't appear to be in the works unless I want to shell out $1K+ for a full laptop replacement rather than a decently powered netbook (no atoms need apply please) in a tablet format.

edit: If a tablet is only really going to offer me internet browsing, I'll buy a $200 kindle, not a $400 - $600 tablet without any extra functionality.
