    I haven't touched my laptop for anything except playing BF3 and Skyrim since I got my first tablet.
    My wife hasn't touched her laptop since she got an iPad. I sold it to a buddy.
    Once in a great while she does use the desktop computer that I built for her to use for her job for something not work related.
    It has 2 24" screens, though, so no tablet is going to replace that.
    Still pretty rare that she does that.
    Of curse we have a 2 year old so free time is hard to come by.

    Also I think that you are going to see a decrease in sales on all PCs in the next year due to the general dislike towards Windows 8, but once Microsoft creates Windows 9 and goes back to having a non-touch centered PC then the sales will pick back up. Also, with Windows 8 why would you want to carry what is essentially a more expensive, bigger, and less convenient tablet? That is why tablet sales will likely increase over the next year, not due to a tablet being better than a laptop.
    I totally agree with this, tablets are great if you don't need to do real world work on them. I just can't see people ditching their laptops and desktop that we use for work like in my case with photo editing. My laptop barely keeps up with my CS5 and i have high end chips and graphic cards. And yes Windows 8 is a total flop i didn't like the beta so not at all interested in buying anything running W8 at all.

    Wow you it surprised . how people think tablets are still . just toys on this forum.
    No you can't run cs5. or edit video as well as on a pc. But it amazes me how much I can get done on this tablet. I have 2 bosses, and attorneys, that are very productive on the iPad and the tf300.
    And with a Win Pro tab? What's a laptop again?
    @note I hate win8 too.Not excited at all. But people are..

    So you are able to watch videos,be surfing the web or be streaming Iheart or Pandora,Google music and still be able to edit and design photos on your tablet?
    I really need to check out a Tablet then because I never realized you could do the same things you can on a laptop like what i do, I usually have something streaming and my email client open and several windows open while I work on CS5 I really had no idea you could do that on a Tablet as well.
    But knowing that this is possible as well then I'll give one a try.

    Edit; oops I didn't notice you said you Can't run CS5 ..But I still am interested in buying a new Tablet I didn't like the first one I bought the Asus Prime I might get an Ipad though?

    Right. Tabs are NOT great photo editors. Tabs are medicore Video editors.
    No you cannot watch a video AND surf the net at the same time unless you get a Smasung tab that supposedly now supports two apps sharing the screen.
    But do email and stream Slacker? Easily.
    Surf the net and listen to Pandora? Yes.
    Remote Desktop to my server to check the logs about why email was being blocked last week? Piece of cake.
    Review a document and display it to the courtroom in the middle of a trial? No problem.
    Dropbox a file on my bosses laptop here in Cleveland so he can pull it up on his iPad in Switzerland? Did it last week.
    Have full on access to the Microsoft Network Shared drive at the office from an Asus TF300 or an iPad tablet? Daily.
    Speak to my Asus Transformer to 'type' an email with nearly 100% success? Success that I have never come close to when speaking to my Windows7 PC? Check!
    There is so much today's tablet are capable of, again I have to say, it surprises me that a large portions of the enthusiast crowd that hangs out on this site thinks tabs are still just toys...

    Peredroid, Overskreen Browser allows surfing the net while using the stock or aftermarket video player or Stick-It video player allows watching videos while using the built in browser, stock or aftermarket.
    I use Overskreen frequently on my Tab 10.1 and sometimes on my phone.
    Stick It allows multiple videos at once as well.
