Thanks Denny for reminding me of two points which I forgot to cover.On screen keyboards suck for real input. But, then, many users do very little input, so, for them, an on screen keyboard is enough. Stunningly for me, this is even true on a phone, which is a real problem with big hands. I am enjoying the real keyboard on this Chromebook as a contrast with my normal evening tablet. Which said, there are starting to be some manufacturer options and third party add ons to provide more reasonable keyboards for tablets, so we are seeing the option of getting what you want.As for ARMH vs INTC, the big issue may be power consumption. ARM chips have historically have low power consumptions that INTC could only dream about. That is critically important in phones and pretty jolly important in tablets. The big questions are:1) Can INTC eat into this advantage by producing low power consumption chips with higher computing power?2) Does Windows 8 RT open a door for ARM on low power consumption web servers ... a very big market.
