Not only are USB and HDMI ports cheap to add, they are common in low end Android tablets. The Nexus 7 also has a quad core processor, and NFC, and an only slightly lower resolution.
It does have a good combination of features, but the hardware specification is not high end as far as I can see (build quality may be).
my Nexus 7 runs circles around my HP-mini netbook
Are they running the same OS and software? If not, put Android on the netbook and then compare.
I think the Tegra T3 should be roughly equal to a dual core atom - I cannot find any comparative benchmarks.
From my point of view the an Atom based netbook has one huge advantage, I can install an OS of my choice on it, whereas all the ARM based hardware is locked in. AS long as that is true, then a tablet will stay, for me, an ebook reader plus video player, plus light use web browser.
