Well, not really futile. More like pointless.
I was sure I wanted a PC that worked like a tablet. So I bought a Dell Inspiron Duo. A tablet PC. Small. Portable. Touch screen. Seemed like a winner. But it wasn’t. Now don’t get me wrong. My Duo has performed exactly as Dell promised it would. I works like a netbook PC when I want a PC. And the screen rotates so that it becomes a tablet when I want a tablet. The trouble is that it’s not a very good PC. And it’s not a very good tablet. It’s just a PC that can be like a tablet. So, eventually I realized that what I wanted was a tablet that could be like a PC. And I have looked at all the tablets out there. And, whether you are a fan or not, there is the iPad and everything else. So, I am now the proud owner of a New iPad.
