    I used to see them as a luxury. After a few months I find I cannot live without my tab.
    I sold my Transformer today in preparation for the arrival of my TF Prime - and I am hurting ): The Prime cannot get here fast enough.

    I don't have a laptop and I'm very used to my playbook, especially browsing with BIS on a big screen makes it great for me.
    Also its a video screen for me when the wife or litie are watching tv.

    Waiting for android support now.

    Not a must have but I seriously "need" one for reading technical computer books ... work is sort of forcing me to start studying again and I simply don't see myself reading through 2-3 inch thick computer books sitting at a desk and there's no way in hell you can read one in bed. I've tried the included pdf's on a Kindle but basically it's too small and it feels akward. The 4:3 screen ratio of the iPad is apparently ideal for reading but I don't want to fork out R4400+ simply for a reading device (or get caught in the Apple fanboi trap).

    Personally I'm looking for a 4:3 1024 x 768 8" - 9.7" Chinese tablet running ICS in the $150 - $250 bracket which is more in the price range I'm willing to pay but either stock is depleted or the device haven't been launched yet. Most seem to be using older A8 single core cpu's but for reading purposes and the odd round of Angry Birds it should be fine (I think). Hopefully a clearer picture on availability for these jobbies will emergence by the end of the month.

    Unless of course I can get my stingy boss to buy me one ... then off course cost becomes a non-issue

    Typing on it now but yeah the onscreen keyboard is tedious. Takes 3 x longer to type stuff on here vs keyboard. Considering the wireless keyboard but at R800 I must be certain I'm going to use it.

    Why the hell does your iPad have that oooold school font? Wtf?

    I can't live without my iPad.

    I use it every single morning, it has replaced my newspaper, I can also check my mail and browse at the same time.

    It comes with me to every meeting, I swear by sound note.

    It comes with me on every trip, read my book in the plane, read magazines etc.

    It's not a want anymore, it's become a need.
