Comic: Convertibles

Convertibles are the new sexy devices, but they don't give you that feeling of the wind blowing in your hair.

Funny Whoopty I have expierenced what you wondered. A couple of years ago I purchased a  HP Split. I was doing alot of traveling at the time and I wanted something light weight and still had enough power to do what I needed to do.

Well I never "split-it" and used it as a tablet, who knows maybe one day I will. But in the end it was too small for me to be really comfortable for long periods of time.


Fast forward to today and I just purchased a large laptop, it might be a pain to transport but at the end of it all I am happy I have it.

Ditto that, I am useless without a keyboard. I recently bought a full size bluetooth keyboard to use for extended trips where I only have my phone, if that's an indication...

I like your thought process...but I still prefer to sit at my desk with an actual keyboard whenever possible.

Re: Interesting
I agree with you completely. However, browsing the internet usually happens from my phone these days, but I love reading books on my tablet!

I like my tablet for reading or browsing the web, but to work I prefer my laptop...hands down.

Re: Bad, not so bad
Very good point, and you wouldn't have to worry about wrapping this convertible around a pole!

I like the tablet and touch screen technology, but I am sure that someone will come up with something better in the future...that we all can't live without.
