When i got my first laptop in 2006 - Lenovo X40, i was on cloud nine. A portable PC which i could carry anywhere and more than 3 hours battery life. Seemed like a miracle then. It gave me 5 strong years of service. However, once i got a tablet, laptops seem cumbersome to me now. Here's why. 1. Putting a laptop on ur tummy while laying down is not for long periods. First of all, ur stomach stars to heat up with the heat of the system and the additional weight feels uncomfortable after a time. Tablets on the other hand are meant for this purpose. Laying down with this light weight device seems ideal. 2. The Touchpad is good but no replacement for a mouse. There is always a distance between you and the laptop with the touchpad. There is a millisecond gap between using it and accessing the activity u like. On the other hand, the swiping/pressing action on tablet seems more intuitive and natural. 3. Continuing the above point, the swiping action feels much more comfortable for casual gaming (vs flash games in laptop). Also reading pdfs is much more enjoyable than reading on a lappy screen. Yeah i know laptops can run heavy games, but i really prefer a desktop for FPS'. Lappy screen feels too small for that. The desktop+Tablet combo works for me now and a lappy seems totally unnecessary for me. Anyone else who feels this way and if not why?
