Doc Daneeka: Too much time spent with handheld touchscreen interfaces has made me long for the good old days.I want to get a new desktop with a big display and a mechanical keyboard.Computers have gotten better in almost every way since the 80s, except keyboards, which have gotten way worse. We went from indestructible and precise IBM Model Ms, to squishy-key keyboards, to touchscreen keyboards.
gingerjet: frepnog: you have a pretty serious point here. Android tabs are great and all, but you are correct - there is not a lot of reason to purchase an Android machine when you can buy a great tab that runs a full version of Windows and will run off-the-shelf software. Android has over-reached in my opinion, and should have remained a phone OS, because truth is that these days a stand alone android tab is redundant unless it was just DIRT cheap.And you would be completely wrong. Here is what Apple and later Samsung has taught people. You don't need Windows or the bloatware that is sold for it. Which is really why Microsoft is falling down now. Their market share in their two key profit centers (Windows and Office) will continue to drop like rocks unless they offer meaningful lightweight alternatives and learn how to actually connect with consumers./they should just spin off xbox and rebrand themselves as an enterprise company
