Very enjoyable article. I've gone back and forth owning and then selling multiple Android tablets and iPads (I currently have an iPad3, MacBook Air, and a souped up Lenovo netbook), but I keep carrying the laptops because I find it more troublesome to print with tablets, and because the file systems are a nuisance compared with "real" computers. My other problem with tablets is their inability to use a mouse or touchpad when the keyboard is attached. Even mentioning this perceived lack of a feature usually opens me up to personal attacks and ridicule just because I don't like being forced to reach over the keyboard and use a touchscreen. Touchscreens are less precise than cursors and mice. The pictures of the TF300's mobile dock kind of make it look like it has a touchpad in the keyboard, but I haven't read anything saying that is the case. Is there a touchpad in the mobile dock? I figure not, since these tablet operating systems don't seem to offer a cursor.
