Sad really, this had such potential, yet they decided to not be inovative in any way...
Maybe it is just me, but I really want this to be the point where PC manufacturers step up to the plate and really hand Apple their ass.
I mean, it shouldn't be that hard. I had the pleasure of playing with an Asus T91MT, and I think I would definitely go with it over the iPad.
It had some negatives; smaller screen, heavier, twice the thickness. However, it had some major positives also; fully functional OS, full keyboard, cheaper(32GB is $485), easily upgradable to 2GB of RAM, closable like a laptop to I don't have to worry about cracking the screen when I put it in my bag...
I know thickness and weight probably won't be something that can be achieve with a full keyboard, but I think those are actually fine on the T91MT, it is only 1.1" thick. I would like a larger screen though, something closer to the 10" size, and I think it is prossible and still be competitive price wise with the iPad.
And anyone that wants to whine about how awesome the app support will be can suck it, because the T91MT is a full blown PC, and nothing matches the PC in app support...
