The real question is deciding whether to buy a tablet or a laptop. It kinds like the 2012 opportunity to by an all-electric automobile. If your trip is less than 50 miles or if you drive less than 100 miles in a day, the the all-electric is a no brainer. If you need to be "productive" at Starbucks or if you are doing complex multitasks, then you must have a laptop (or PC/Mac). I'm waiting to see a commercial where someone pits a tablet against a Laptop for multitasking. It will probably be like the hot-dog eating contests. I've never considered eating more than two hot-dogs at a sitting. Have you? Enough mixed metaphors for one day!
