a hybrid - transformer

The ASUS transformer is interesting in the fact that it's a pure tablet and also a laptop when you need it. However, it's still limited like storage capacity, 64gb is not enough when you're doing movie editing and graphics design. Then again there isn't a full fledged photoshop program or gimp created specifically for the tablet unless it's a full blown tablet/computer like the EP121. A blade SSD or 1.8" drive option will definitely help, as well as allowing other input devices like an active digitizer. More importantly it still needs a faster processor, the processing power is like an early 90s Pentium 166 not and doesn't even come close to core 2 duo or quad core in terms of MIPS. Then again it's a trade-off between power and number crunching.

Well hopefully Lenovo's tablet will deliver on some of the missing features. But still in no way is far from perfect, tablets still leave a features out like connectivity with ancient devices that people want to tinker with but at least some tablets have a full blown usb port.
