Hey Scott. My Dad asked me about the Apple Ipad. I was thinking that there was something similar technology wise that maybe Lenovo sold?. He says he doesn't want a laptop because he thinks the technology is out-dated. I haven't really kept up with the technology as far as portables go. An Ipad would be in the "tablet" category correct?. I'm just against anything made by Apple. What Lenovo Tablets do you recommend?

A tablet makes a good internet browser toy, but I wouldn't find it useful for any real work. I previously responded to basically the same question here. Lenovo does now have a tablet, but I'd recommend a ThinkPad instead. <g> Scott.

So Scott, from my understanding a tablet is nothing more than a big touch-screen smart phone, without the phone function?. It really doesn't have any use more than browsing the internet and that is not worth the cost of the device. That is the limit of my understanding of tablet devices. Is that right or am I way off base?

Unless it is a Tablet *PC* that can run PC based OS like Windows, Linux, OS X, etc., then I'd say "I concur". <g> Scott.
