For the past few weeks, I have been weighing the pros and cons of getting some sort of tablet-like gadget. Originally my justification was that I'd love to have something I could bring traveling and leave my laptop at home. Unfortunately I'm not convinced I'd be able to do that, and would just be adding a third gadget to my (terribly overpacked) luggage stash instead.
To be honest, I don't even use my (lovely) Macbook Pro with any regularity. The last thing I usually want to do after sitting in front of a computer for 8, 10, 16 hours a day is crack open another computer. Is this a pro or a con for a tablet? No idea.
Full disclosure: it took me an insanely long time to make the switch from Blackberry to Iphone, and I am NOT a fan of ereaders (or actually, I am just way more a fan of regular books!). But I am warming up to the idea of being able to read a book or two and/or watch a movie while traveling (D brings a mini DVD player on flights!). And we ARE planning lots of trips next year. Hrm.
Dilemmas. Yes, I'd love a new toy. But I don't want to waste my money on something that will get limited use.
Any dedicated tablet fans out there? Help!
