The Acer Iconia W500 runs Windows 7 Home Premium or Win 7 Professional and
can do virtually anything a typical netbook or notebook can do according to
manufacturer comments I have seen on some retailer websites.  I don't think
I would use it for doing CGI animation at Disney but for most consumers it
should do anything they want it to do including run MS Office 2010,
manipulate photos, burn CDs and DVDs and
upload/download/play/record/burn/stream audio/video and photos.  In addition
it real USB ports to connect anything from printers and scanners to external
hard drives and thumbdrives.

I'm not Rose but:

A Tablet is a generic name for a very limited capability instrument that can
do some very limited computer like functions.  They are NOT general purpose
computers.  The tablet is the least powerful category in the list beginning
with the most powerful configuration: the desktop computer, then notebook -
or laptop computer, then netbook computer, and finally and least capable,
the tablet.  Each has advantages but always with some accompanying
disadvantages.
Tablets are mainly characterized by the capability to do manipulations by
touching the screen while most of the more capable (and powerful) computers
use keyboards, mice, and pads. IMHO tablets are mostly instruments to
entertain the user - toys - just my opinion.

An iPad is just a brand name of one of the many tablets one can buy. (It is
the most expensive tablet <smile> but some - not all - say best).

Try Googling to find comparisons.  I'd suggest Wiki.

Ciao,
Jimmy
