Google Nobody needs a tablet, but many people still want a tablet. This is still the core differentiator between a 'real' computer and a tablet. At least in The Netherlands, you can't function in society without a desktop or laptop connected to the internet, so people need a computer. A tablet, though? Hence, the most common thing people have told me when they played with my iPad 2 is this: I'd love to have a tablet, but not for hundreds of euros. Enter Google's Nexus 7, the first 'cheap' tablet that doesn't just validate Android as a tablet platform, but also gives the iPad a run for its money.

You can get literally terabytes of storage with an external hard drive and an adapter.

I thought this was about mobile computing?

Yes, but if you're swapping SD cards around for more storage, you need a place to hold them, and if that place is any bigger than your pocket it can probably hold a 3.5" portable drive.

You wouldn't believe the speed you can get out of a RAID array! Ok, now, can we go back to tablets?
