The best tablets so far: Australian round-up

Craig was sucked into the endless vortex of tech at an early age, only to be spat back out babbling things like "phase-locked-loop crystal oscillators!". Mostly this receives a pat on the head from the listener, followed closely by a question about what laptop they should buy.

So you want a tablet. You desire one. Crave, one might even say.

The most pressing question is, which one suits you best? If you want something that does it all, Asus' Windows-based Slate EP121 is likely your best bet. If you buy into the entire Apple eco-system, iTunes, iMac, iPhone, iDesk, iPony and all, then you really can't go past the iPad.

For Android tablets, the Eee Pad Transformer is our current pick, especially considering the excellent price and doubled-battery life if you hook it up to its keyboard. For just the tablet though, our interest is also piqued in the yet-to-be-released Toshiba AT100.

Laptops, smartphones and tablets are all colliding at an alarming pace, and we expect plenty of game-changing devices in all categories to hit this year and next. It's a good time to be in tech!

i want to shake your hand! The Ipad 2 is not deserving of even a 6.0 rating, despite the flocks of stupid apple fanboys who will purchase this rubbish product purely for the little apple on the back.

If you want a PC tablet for work or play, get a Asus Eee Slate EP121 with "WORLD STANDARD" windows 7 and 12" screen and get MS Office, you can use a printer, scaner or usb and SDXC drive on the Asus, it comes with 2 year warranty. Also look at new Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 (windows 7).

Idiotpad2 is "FOOL'S GOLD".!
