I really like the tablets, you don't have to wait for the computer to start up, just unlock and go. You can do almost everything on it that you can do the big C. I need to figure out how to get pictures from the tablet to blogger and Facebook yet without going thru the big C.
When we went to New Haven for the AUSS convention we took the tablets, which were much lighter and more convenient. It allowed us to both use the Internet at the same while waiting in the airport ( I think it is great that the airports have Internet access, those 2 hour waits can go faster with the Internet ) or when we were in the room.
One disadvantage when I have the tablet next to my belly, is that sometimes it ( my belly) causes letters or spaces to be typed; this happened when I was trying to bold a large section of this blog and the blogger is so quick to save that I had to retype it.
But in general I am very glad that we have the tablets! Plus they have a 10 hour battery life much longer than our laptop.
One interesting thing is that I can't get chrome to show the preview, I have to use safari!
