Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Here's my particular heresy in this the religious war of out time:

I want an iPad to which I can plug a USB keyboard (or connect to a bluetooth keyboard, I guess) and use as a MacBook - or maybe all I have to do is switch to "MacBook mode" and use a virtual on-screen keyboard.

That is, as long as I also need to own a laptop I won't buy a tablet. And I have wanted to have a tablet since I was the early tablet PC models ca. 2000. But I have waited 10 years so I can wait another 5.

What I don't want is to have to have an iPod, iPhone, iPad, MacBook and iMac. Phone, tablet and desktop is good enough for me. And if I the tablet is powerful enough and can be used as a phone through a bluetooth headset, just the tablet.

En un viejo país ineficiente, algo así como España entre dos guerras civiles, poseer una casa y poca hacienda y memoria ninguna. -- Gil de Biedma
