However, chances are the average person on the street doesn’t care for these details – instead, it’s the snappiness and response of the experience which stands out. For this, the Nvidia Tegra 3 delivers in spades. Combined with Android 4.1, known as [Jelly Bean], which has a slew of improvements which increase everyday performance. As one who has spent eternities tweaking previous Android devices for additional speed and responsiveness, I was shocked at just how quickly and seamlessly everything was, right out of the box – making my Galaxy Nexus 7 tablet 7 inch also running 4.1 look positively pedestrian. Touches are electrifyingly responsive and loading times are nearly non-existent. Even playing intensive games, the 1.3ghz quad-core Tegra3 powers through it all – be sure to check out the [Tegra HD a 10 inch tablets]] optimised titles. This little underdog can proudly stand up there and trade punches with the best. When you’re not killing zombies, unused CPU cores take themselves offline to conserve power.

Tony - Are you into tablets? I love the technology and feel the attraction, but find myself unable to get into them for anything production in nature.. it's all consumption. I find an ultrabook like the Asus x31e for, under 3 pounds, 13.3" 1600x900 screen, SSD, i5 CPiU., 4gigs of RAM, and 8-9 hours of mattery life for $860 very appealing instead. It comes with something to hold the monitor, a real keyboard, and 13.3" in an "Air" type package is very liberating. I can't think of a use, a personal use anyway, where I wouldn't prefer this over a tablet.

On the splurging side.. my Lenovo x201s, mispec for dust/water/vibration, i7 cpu, 8gigs of RAM, 1440x900 matte IPS screen, 256gb SATA3 SSD, all in a rather ugly 2.4 pounds (1.1kg) to be the best of all worlds if money isn't a consideration. These are very hard to find now, a special run for the military that never made it to the Lenovo site.. but almost 3 years later I'm still loving mine. I can't find a new model with Ivy Bridge I like better. With the extended battery and SSD I can watch nearly 10 hours of video/movies on a long flight. It's small, tough as nails, and has great connectivity.. I'll probably buy a W530 workstation next month, but I keep hoping for a Ivy Bridge replacement for the x201s.
