I couldn't agree more. The only benefit I've seen is that's it's a nice size to be able to watch movies on. But since I can't plug in my external USB hard drive or memory card, it looks like I'll have to watch it on my latop or cell phone.

For more than two decades I have been waiting for a portable device with a biggish screen, decent communications capabillity and a battery life of more than a day. The first device that really did it for me (and believe me I have tried them all: Newton, Palm, Cassiopeia, etc) was the iPad. It could have been a low power laptop but battery life never made it much past a few hours. I have made the leap now, it would take a lot to make me go back to a laptop.

Since workplace will provide the notebook there is no need to buy another. Communication becoming more important than computation, so the smartphone is my sole personal device.

and I am trying to figure out why I need a tablet. To me it is a large unusable cellphone and an hard to use low performance laptop

I think the tablet pretty much stole all the thunder from the book, in terms of consumer perception of what a mobile device could be.

Performance does matter, and it does sell. If there is only a slight performance gain, then I think most would go for the power savings. But which do you buy if there is a drastic performance difference?

A throwback to 1989; you and this argument easily could be wrong again. As users get a taste of ARM solutions they want more - more performance and more functionality. ARM is responding with designs that are more cores and more performant cores(and more power hungry)... moving right into the space where Intel already excels. Intel also is inventing new processes to compete well, on down where, for now, ARM is unrivaled. For now.

I just checked my household and there are two Netbooks, two laptops, one Nook, and a desktop computer. An Ultrabook would be nice to replace all the above with some level of portability, but with CPU computational power that is equivalent to my collection of gadgets (not necessarily an ARM processors). So a universal solution could on the horizon with the Intel push on such products.

Seems ONLY Apple is doing well in tablets, Rest everyone is reducing the production http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/11/06/01/jp_morgan_apples_ipad_rivals_reduce_build_plans_after_early_dose_of_reality.html
