@ DCH, would life be more meaningful if the money for tablet is saved and donated to charity, or to help the needing, or to give away the money to your children for a field trip? At the end, your iPad is nice to have, in fact, if you really need the function of iPad, you can save a lot of real money by going for the alternate Nexus 10 which has higher ppi or the Surface RT with uSD support and a start-of-the-art OS (relative to the iOS). The argument of more apps is really mood because your life will not diminish without those, right? With the new crop of Win8-based tablet and the upcoming $599 (if OEM can make this price point at ECY2013), iPad is so very throwing money into drain because of the 2nd-rated hardware features (no USB port, proprietary charging and accessories port, no uSD support, OS with limited function and good only for single-purpose apps, ...) especially for consumers who have engineering mindset.

@iniewski, I agree with you. Infact I feel ultrabook will grow faster than the tablets because latest released ultrabooks can be easily converted into tablets.

@DCH, Is it comfortable to type using touchscreen on your iPad or do you use externak keyboard to type your content ? I somehow feel its pretty tough to type using a touchscreen.

Surely, but how do you get RRAM, MRAM/Spin and other non captive devices that dense so quickly; because that transition is coming quickly. Mike Bruzzone Camp Marketing
