Duh... you Sheen statement fits you.

As the other poster said about "portable stove", was a good example.

I have an iPad and I have a ThinkPad notebook with Windows7.
They have their functions and abilities.

My quad core desktop and ThinkPad CANNOT power up into the OS in a second. I cannot leave my Thinkpad in sleep mode for 1-2 days at a time. My Thinkpad is about 6lbs... not exactly a FUN thing to handle when kicking it back on the couch watching TV.... Much less my 24" LCD and desktop.

Tablet computers HAVE a place and they *DO* it well.

Try handling your notebook like you would a book... not going to happen.

No - it's a catastrophically bad example, as noted above.

Your Problem with not being able to leave your PC in sleep mode for 1-2 days and not powering on in a second is a Microsoft problem , not a hardware problem ... Check out Ubuntu Linux, It does Both and is free!!!
