I'll give you the tablets on potential but that netbook seems pretty stock, except you don't pay for Windows by default.

On the tablets though, I'd still put my money down for the iPad if only for the ease of the interface, tight app store integration, branding and of coarse Apple's focus on all customers being happy.

From what I can tell these come with either Linux or Windows and well all I can say about that is - bad idea. The OS needs to be built from the ground up to be for touch tablets and trying to retrofit a desktop OS onto a tablet is doomed.

Do these things even have an app store?
