Theres no flash support?.......

Nope just like the iPhone Apple believes that Flash is too unstable for their products. However, with the use of HTML5 you can watch videos as if you had flash on YouTuebe and other sites supporting it. It's likely in the future Flash will disappear as more products support HTML5.

      I like using my tablet for reading e-books and cbt videos. It's not a multitouch tablet, and I have to use a pen for it to work, but it doesn't bother me. It's invaluable. :)

      And they don't teach writing anymore. Do they?

      There's not enough emphasis on a lot of the basics, anymore -- and it becomes more and more apparent as time goes by.  So, do I want to learn Mandarin, or Cantonese?

      It's all well and good, until the device quits, or the power goes out.

      Tablet PC's are generally defined as those upon which input can be made with a digital pen, stylus, or touchscreen, often using one's natural handwriting.  Tablet PCs can have two formats:  a convertible model with an integrated keyboard and display screen that rotates/swivels 180 degrees and folds down over the keyboard -- or a slate style, with a removable keyboard.

        For the month of February and all the recent news about the Slate PC's and Apples iPad we thought it'd be interesting this month to see if you believe you'll be using one of these devices in the future. Feel free to discuss why you will or will not be using this type of device, what type you plan on buying, what you think you'll be doing on it, why it will or will not be a success, if it'll replace the computer, etc.

        All past monthly polls and results can also be found on the Computer Hope poll page.

        Only if it comes with a 20 inch screen!

        20-inch screen seems like a lot to carry around.

          I have a toshiba M700 tablet, worst laptop Ive ever owned. The problem list is huge and they just keep coming. Its small and the keyboard is a pain to type on and it really strains my eyes with the tiny screen. Its battery is crap and at best, its a max of 1 hour. The swivel screen holders on mine are broken so the damned screen swivels whenever the laptop moves. I use it at school and I move it a lot and actually use it as a laptop and its horrible. If you are going to buy a tablet, dont buy a Toshiba.

          Also I have friends with large screen tablets and those things are a pain to carry. D:
