Better to let someone else Beta test them... -----Original Message----- From: Chip and Allie Orange <acorange@xxxxxxxxxxx> To: tabi <tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Sun, Oct 20, 2013 12:53 pm Subject: [tabi] Re: New transformer PC'sMatt, My only thought is that they are rather more expensive than just a laptop, and I’m not sure that a blind person would get anything out of just a tablet. I think you’re paying for technology which, at best you can’t use, and at worst will constantly make your mouse jump around as you accidentally touch it, and then you’re typing somewhere you don’t mean to be. (I think most blind laptop users, for instance, disable the touchpads on their laptops) I think for the same price as a 5 pound tablet, you could have a ultra laptop in the 2 pound range. Of course, maybe this changes if you’re partially sighted; maybe you can actually enjoy the tablet, I don’t know. Can’t say though that I have even a sighted friend buying these tablets, so something about them isn’t making them fly off the shelves.

You can unattached the keyboard from the display and the display is now a tablet! So now you have a say windows 8 pro or 8.1 pro tablet and then when you hook the display back to the keyboard you now have a Windows 8 laptop running windows 8 pro or windows 8.1 pro. Any thoughts on this ? I thought this is a good idea then you have both worlds. MattMatt.from.florida@xxxxxxxxx
