I would think that having some sort of netbook with a swiveling screen which could be used as a writing tablet would be ideal, so long as it wasn't too thick. That way you'd have a keyboard when you want it, and you'd have the touch screen when you want it. The trouble with making such a thing is that it'd have to be nice and thin, and yet still have a decent battery life.
The Asus T101 will be able to do that.
If Asus can put together a product that doesn't try do too much and become bloated it might be great! I am just afraid these competitve tablets are going to be slow... and lord knows if I get a tablet I want it to be responsive.
Personally I would gladly take a tablet that is more efficient towards it's cost than speed alone. I don't feel like paying out my posterior for a tablet that's fast but can only handle minute things.
Of course here I am being somewhat of a hypocrite. I plan on becoming an Apple App designer very soon in an attempt to pay my way through college, and the Ipad could use some apps to make it more meaningful.
If anyone can do it, it would be ASUS. I have the 1005HA netbook and it's pretty awesome for the performance and the battery life at the time it came out... although I had to RMA it a few times... but as long as it works, it's golden :)
Not 100% sure if I would get a tablet though... I'll have to play around with them first
I am certain that by Christmas we will have so many Slates and tablets to choose from. These companies will be fighting for our business.
About the only thing that could keep the Ipad on top, is is Microsoft came out with a Zune Tablet!
