You will see such comments from folk that are trying to slow down the tech advances. Here at the office there are few XP and Vista machines except for testing and machines that are just working. We've moved on and wonder what these skeptics are basing their comments on.
Did you notice that today's machines are faster than the Cray 2 supercomputers of 1985 past? For example -> http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/05/09/the-ipad-in-your-hand-as-fast-as-a-supercomputer-of-yore/
And that's just an iPad 2! As to Windows 8, you can with a simple search find out if you are willing to wait that long. Maybe by the time you digitize your books it will be shipping.
am a teacher and I want to digitalize all my books on a tablet pc to
spare myself the pains of carrying around the loads I need daily.
make my class-situations at all convenient, I need to be able to
multitask: have more than one book open at the same time, which is
impossible with android or apple.windows 7 seems the answer
but: I have seen how sluggish the dell inspiron duo is, windows 7 didn't seem up to the job of handling touch-pc reality.
I have my mind set on the samsung 7 series slider: that one seems very quick all
of a sudden... or is this too good to be true?
are those two
Moreover: is it worth waiting for windows 8 which boasts better
touch-pc-handling or is windows 7 not as bad as sceptics tend to
believe?any insight is welcome
