I love the device, its a laptop in a tablet form. Like everyone else I fell into the apple trap. design and form.. and only found out too late.. no functionality or interoperability with other real world technology, think HDMI, USB, USB HD/USB DVD, SD, Flash, camera etc, not to mention having to void your warranty by jailbreaking it to get real world use from it.
I do mill installs in the craziest of places and I needed a device I could take in and stay connected to the web. I found out too late that simply being connected to the web did not mean i could do anything usefull.. like take pictures and transfer them to websites etc. Even if you buy the camera transfer connector (usb/SD) you still cant do anything with it other than email , facebook, picasa. Try posting an image on this forum for example.... requires uploading to online server, then grabbing a link and pasting into IMG holders... yucky...
My ipad was left on the coffee table.. kids played angry birds, and doodle jump...
SO.. the day came when a friend of mine who works from a multinational engineering firm asked for my help in researching tablets (they will order from 200 to 800 units) and we researched and drove around testing heasp of devices.. FUN!!!! (cant believe how happy computer shops are to help you when they know a huge order in on the cards.)
The results ended up as follows.
1: Pc/Win7 based tablets. (slower, less slick, most usefull, ultimate compatability with other tech, medium battery)
2: Android Tablets (faster, slicker, filesystem, better compatability with other tech, good battery)
3: Linux based Tablets. (Fastest actually, not slick at all, pretty complex, medium compatability, medium battery)
4: Apple Tablets (Fast, super slick, least usefull, zero compatability with other tech, best battery)
So the firm is going to buy a big chunk of ep 121 units for the working guys, and ipads as toys for upper management.
Each device has its own strong points. I got rid of my apple, and bought the ep121, but i have to say that i was very tempted to get the acer iconia tab... that little device is NICE!
At the end of the day i went with the device that would allow me to do the most on the run.. I cannot wait for win8 with the metro ui to come out.
 mods, please move to Technology part of forum, this post and the one before it, i didnt realise there was such a section, my apologies.
[EDIT2] had a few pokes about my toolbar, so here it is. please feel free to edit and reupload any cool features you think would make it more usefull for touch
