    Well i'm looking to replace my macbook with a tablet since the macbook is a bit to big and it gets very hot. I got a Ipad 1 but its filled with kid apps and i really like to have a own tablet and have movies/series on it.

    So my question: I often looking at a serie (on tv-links) and surf the web on the same time in 2 small windows. Can any tablet replace a computer on this?

    Or get two or three iPads and have them going at the same time. Like in the movie Matrix.

    Note 8 does this as well. This is a very useful feature that few people seem to know about. I was in the market for a new tablet and this feature was enough to convince me to get the Note 8. Once you get used to it, you won't want to use any other tablet. Watch a video and take notes.. stream a game and continue browsing, etc etc. Just awesome.

    I have an iPad and a Nexus 7 plus two MacBooks going at all times so I can do all kinds of different things at once. :)

    from here

    WUT? :confused: ;)

    BTW: as much as I don't see the Idea of Multitasking on my iphone (giving 2" per App ;)), it's one of the things holding me back from getting an iPad..

    I have a Windows 8 tablet as well as an iPad. Multitasking on the Windows 8 tablet is far better than any other tablet (I've also owned a Note 10.1). Even the "Metro" interface can display two applications side by side in a touch friendly way.

    Don't you find the 1/3 2/3 split cramped? I'd prefer to have two apps split the screen in portrait.

    The other posters are right - a lot of other devices do offer these features. The problem is, the screen is so cramped that you end up more annoyed than you were with just one app on at the same time. Plus, they're not running iOS, and they're missing the build quality of an Apple device.

    All I can suggest is go try a tablet out now that has multitasking capability and see how you feel about it.

    I disagree. I never felt cramped using Quasar on my iPad 2. I'd imagine it wold even be better with a Retina display.
