Ipad is to computing as Facebook is to the web
Something I might use occasionally if its free, but am not that bothered about? Yes, I realise a lot of people are heavily into Facebook, but far more are light users.
I do want a tablet, but not an Ipad. If I could run Linux on a tablet I could move most of my work to it, at which point I get rid of the laptop and use a desktop PC (ergonomically preferable, cheaper, more reliable) when at my desk, and the tablet when not.
TO put it another way, I want a Nokia N900 with a bigger screen.
I am not quite sure I get the point about instant on etc: a laptop only takes a few seconds to wake from sleep, people often carry netbooks without a case, and how is the connectivity any different.
