Thread Name: Tech: Do I Want a Tablet?
Subject: RE: Tech: Do I Want a Tablet?
Joe, the tablet you cite has two things against it: It relies on a relatively small "flash hard drive" and it is from Amazon. I distrust the ultimate stability of flash drives, as a minor voltage variation destroys them. Most of these devices are more peripheral than computer.

I am very happy with my HP mini.

Finally, I encourage people to avoid buying from Amazon. They are an extremely abusive employer and, even though a boycott by any small group has a minimal effect on a company that large, I recommend what I consider the moral choice.
