I thought I was going to buy an iPad

but now, I may just wait a few months and buy this thing

Quote:
Crossing a toaster with a fridge wouldn't seem to make sense. Yet in doing so, Microsoft may be able to light a fire under its business. And finally land a punch against Apple and Google.

The strange merger of kitchen appliances is how Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook describes the idea of cross-pollinating a tablet with a laptop. But Microsoft suggests its new Surface tablet is more akin to a toaster oven. Unveiled Monday, it could be the first computing device that is equally good at cooking up content as it is at consuming it.
lots of times I leave the house and know a tablet is all I would want to carry
but there are those times a real computer, with software, keyboard and printing would be better, so just buy an airbook or ultralight, right

now, this thing may marry the two?? sounds like filling a real need, instead of creating one.

hay, i have a photosmart 6510. i don't know what airprint is but wikipedia says all hp printers with eprint has this option, and mine has eprint.

i like it, i just had to replace my printer actually since my cartridges decided to leak out onto the table i had my printer on. oops. anyway, it's a good printer. i've tested the eprint option once and it worked fine, and it also printed a photo as a test and it looked good. plus it's not $500 or anything. and if you're an online shopper, you can get it for free shipping through amazon.

Anyone purchased Mountain Lion yet? If so, how is it? Any life changing features?

I updated from Snow Leopard and avoided Lion. So there are some new features to me like the Launchpad and Mission Control. Safari 6 is very fast than I remember, but I'm still using Chrome.
Can't use the Notification Center to it's full potential because I don't use the Mail app. When Facebook integration is ready I'm hoping I'll use it more.

I have '09 MBP and I was worried about it possibly becoming slow after updating. It's done the complete opposite and feels like a new machine. Not bad for £13.99

Cool. I noticed my computer ran significantly better with Lion after upgrading, would be interested to hear what the "Lion to Mountain Lion" change feels like. I admittedly hardly use any of the changes / features introduced with Lion, so I'm honestly more likely to buy it just based on an potential performance enhancements.

my laptop's pretty old (i have the one that came out in early 2008) and i noticed mine ran faster with lion at first, but now reboots and such take just as long as they did with snow leopard. i can't say i'm too keen on paying $15 to upgrade again to make it faster for five minutes.

my imac? ha. that baby's so old it couldn't even be upgraded to lion. not enough ram. and i always get the maximum amount of ram available at the time for the model. i got it in the summer of 2007. i think my laptop just barely made it in terms of ram.

i probably should get a new computer but 1. can't afford it, 2. i love my laptop (i hate the new touchpads - it's not that i hate change, i've played around with the new version of the touchpad plenty and we just don't get along). maybe someday i'll get a new imac.

So computers now have Ram, Mice, Leopards and Lions in/operating them? What next? Peacock cooling systems? Alligator anti-virus?

Glad I got a 4s when I did. Not really in need of a bigger screen or many of the features, don't like the headphone plug down the bottom as is with the iPod touch these days.

I don't have any sort of smart phone but even I knew how that worked.
