Dell does Tablet Computing

I hate to part with my four-year old Dell Latitude notebook, but now that the E key is causing me grif, I am rady to gt a nw on.

While looking for a replacement, I came across the new Dell "convertible" called the Inspiron Duo -- it switches between being a netbook and a touchscreen tablet.  Like an Apple iPad, accessories like speakers convert it even further into an entertainment center.

Perhaps not coincidentally, Dell priced this tablet computer just below the Apple iPad.  See it here

That Dell sure looks nice. It's unforunate that it is more than twice the weight of an iPad.
I've given up using paper notes completely since I got an iPad in June.
