Hi:

I did not want to post this because my template changed and the article is sort of garbled, but have a read:

http://www.thisoldmac.ca/wordpress/2008/11/23/what-an-apple-tablet-means-and-what-it-should-be/

I don't know, like pretty much everyone else, what the end result will be, but Apple's hybrid tablet slider looks spot on.

A laptop and a tablet in one? Apple? You mean a subnotebook with a
real keyboard but a touch-sensitive screen la eMate? Surely you
don't mean something like certain Tablet PCs with their horrendous
twisting mechanism to have the screen cover the keyboard and use them
as a slate. Anyway, this device may "solve many of the purported
issues mentioned", but that really depends on how it's going to be
designed. Outside and inside.

Thanks for the informative one-line response, by the way.
