I'm sorry, but nothing can take away the use of a full pc. Used a tablet, laptop, and phone, but nothing could do what a pc could do.

I got a 32GB HP Touchpad for $150! :D They're sold out, but on eBay they're going for $200-$300 which is a great price for a full-fledged tablet. =)

Tablets are ok but they're big and cost more than laptops and they do less. But I agree with the statistic since alot of people gotta have the latest gadgets.

sounds legit to me now, i bought two touchpads this year cuz of the fire sale, i NEVER thought they could be so useful ESPECIALLY for a college student. Its kinda remarkable, i think one of the main "features" that no one thinks about is the fact that it's "always on" and no boot speeds can beat just flicking on a tablet and doing what ever you were gonna do. most of the time, just turning on my laptop makes me want to not search for something, etc
