It appears that the writers here commonly slight their review to what they like best. How about actually testing and doing product reviews against each other? Miximum PC does a great job at this. In fact, if you look at this months issue there is a review about the iPad 2 against the Motorola Xoom and the Xoom wins out overall, but, thay also show the reasons as to why and base it on the devices and not personal preference.
Techrepublic is a great site for a lot of things, but hardware reviews is not one of those things. Just my 2 cents.
Oh, and I have an iPad2 and a Xoom.
Keep Up with TechRepublic
