    So, using this article's logic, the desktop I built for $1000 a year ago that HAS to be plugged in all the time has cost me infinite dollars?

    Also, is it just me, or did the article use Apple products as a gold standard, despite the fact that they get just as bad (or worse) battery than some of the products they listed? I think someone got paid by someone other than Yahoo to write this article...

    or $0, because it doesn't have a battery

    You guys think that's bad? I paid 1200 for my laptop which had a battery life of about 4 hours. Let's just say my laptop was worse.

    I'll consider a PRO if the price was a bit lower. That thing is pretty much perfect for my needs.

    God how stupid. First and foremost what makes a tablet is the OS. iOS = Android <<<<<<<<<<<< Windows 8 Pro. You can't seriously compare a mobile OS with a FULL Desktop OS.

    That's the problem with reading the garbage that most online tech journalists write. They make comparisons only as far as it will back up their argument when it is painfully obvious that the big picture is contrary to what they are writing.
