Hello, Yes, I know the Slate hasn't shown its face yet, but I'm just wondering if anybody waiting for the MBP (or MB) refresh is giving much thought to opting for the Slate. The Slate, it seems, will lack a "real" keyboard, but how long before some wunderkind or wunderkompany comes up with a base station for the Slate... a base that incorporates a "real" poundable keyboard. The Slate may well lack the power of even the entry 13" MBP, but if the base station materializes, you get, in a sense, two computers... The truly portable and the deskbound. One wonders if the Slate will be hookable to an external monitor. Heck, imagine the Slate as a bridge between "external" (base station) keyboard and an external monitor. Perhaps I'm barking up the wrong tree or just barking mad!
