1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I joined the forum to help in the process of deciding
    which portable [computer/phone/pad/tethering] type device I
    might want to use in the future.

    My iPhone is coming up for renewal.

    I like a desktop and big screen but you can't drag it with you.
    My net-book keyboard is so small that I hook up peripherals.
    It needs a net card at my boondocks place.
    A data card is then the cost of another phone.

    I go blind trying using the iPhone as a computer, but it works.
    The Motorola Atrix with Lapdock is beginning to look like a possibility.

    I have been running Linux on my computers since Fedora Core 3
    and now at Fedora 15 I can't imagine the world without open source.

    In addition to my linux boxes I have a mac mini.
    The linux boxes can boot windows xp but it is rarely done.

    Welcome to the forum. In all honesty I really can't give u a suggestion. I'm not an Apple fan so its out of the question. Haha. But I love the Xoom, I take it wherever I go. I use it for training purposes, I use it to make easy modifications on my procedures, watch great quality movies. its compact enough, fits in my little back pack.
