    Sure, laptops are great, until you try to carry it everywhere. Portability is much better with a tablet than a laptop.

    and a smart phone is even more portable than a tablet or computer. Its all preference. I have just decided that pads dont really offer much to me.

    I still don't really get the need. I hear what people are saying but a laptop/smartphone combo seems to cover all the bases, a tablet just seems unnecessary.

    If I were to buy one though, I'd get an ipad so at least I'd have some new apps and a new OS to play with.

    I would go so far as to say having a tablet isn't necessary at all. But it sure would be cool to have one.

    Thanks everyone especially stelv. I think I'm fine with my fascinate and new laptop for now. Plus starting college in San Diego as a freshman in 3 months, i don't know how much time I would have for the xoom to make it worth it...

Otherwise thexoom is where it is at for me.

    How do you tether to your xoom?
