I love your enthusiasm but you need to stop and look at what is the actual reality and not dream about the future. I love tablets. For certain they will be the death of netbooks. But as cool as the Asus Transformer's battery pack/keyboard is, it's an extra item that you don't want to take with you all the time. If I've got a satchel or something, great, love it. But the design of a tablet, the entire reason for tablets, is simple, minimalist convenience. A tablet that pretty much requires a keyboard attachment to be as useful as a laptop, is called a laptop. If you give me a piece of paper and tell me to write something, I have to ask you for a pen. You give me a tablet and I can write something without biting off the end of my finger. No other tool is required and that is the point of it. Just because it's possible to use a stylus, just because you can find one with a usb port, or wrestle one into printing on your printer, or contort enough to conceivably function with whatever tool I ask for, doesn't mean that's what it was intended to do. Your bold new evolution in computing isn't quite here, and some of us think it might not go the way you are expecting. You give me a pen with that piece of paper and then ask me to write a novel, I'll going to ask you for more tools. It's the same with tablets.
