The gist? Everybody is unveiling tablets at CES.

I don’t care, my tablet may have only 6 inches, but it’s thicker and has more functionality. It appeals to a larger crowd. You can take your 8” tablet and shove it in your niche!!” Edited 2011-01-05 20:42 UTC 2011-01-05 11:28 pm Liquidator LOL…This reminds me how large mobile phones have become… I prefer a regular un-smart phone, it’s more simple and it takes less room im my pocket. Regarding tablet PCs, I don’t like them, I also prefer a regular laptop computer. If it’s for space, I would choose a MacBook Air 2011-01-05 9:09 pm vivainio You know what jumps at you when you go to engadget? Frigging this: http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/05/nvidia-announces-project-denver-… 2011-01-05 9:45 pm TommyD I think the tablet boom is just starting. Now that we are creating good “finger” OS’s, I expect schools, hospitals, and many other organizations to make the switch. I still remember my first tablet – it had a red boarder, gray screen, and 2 white knobs at the bottom. The only problem was the refresh rate of about 1 fph. 2011-01-05 11:08 pm BallmerKnowsBest I still remember my first tablet – it had a red boarder, gray screen, and 2 white knobs at the bottom.

If it comes down to it I’ll get theirs, but I’ve never been impressed by the build quality of the Acer machines I’ve used.
