  1. I know this is not a popular opinion, but I certainly HOPE the tablet PC does not become the primary computer medium. I may eventually purchase a tablet, or perhaps a smart phone, but I can’t stand the thought of doing away with my keyboard/mouse-based laptop, which itself has a “touchpad”. I disabled that “feature” very early on following purchase.
