Here was me thinking that laptops were so passé now that iPad2 is out! Actually, having had an HP EliteBook 6930p for the last two years courtesy of work (Windows 7) I would always consider a laptop over a tablet. I don't have wireless internet at home (not even Broadband due to pitiful BT infrastructure) so an i-Anything really wouldn't work. Personally I don't much care for the trend in widescreen laptops - they are hell to work with, and as for the keyboards on most laptops, they SUCK. What is with this trend for introducing acres of space between each key? If you can actually type (I can average about 95wpm) then these keyboards are God-awful!
