Seriously I have realized Tablets still are a toy for teenagers/kids and only for use with games. Sent my Android tablet back after 2 days of use.

Still use my laptop.
Could you please consider not posting anything from now on when you have no clue what you're talking about? Every single time you post you pretend to be superior to everyone and everything, and it's becoming duller by the day.

Whilst I agree that mikecomputing's writing style could be annoying at times, would you care to point out which part of his post do you disagree with? 8 hours battery life is pathetic. A desktop OS on a device without a keyboard is a guaranteed fail. Tablets are toys.

Well, I'll point out the parts that I disagree with if you don't mind. 8 hours of battery life isn't bad when you keep in mind that tablets are NOT a replacement for desktops. Also, you can always buy a bluetooth keyboard to use with the tablet! Tablets are useful if you're on the go. I personally got saved by my tablets many times because I didn't have my laptop or desktop around me and had to SSH into a server and fix something that went terribly wrong (which at one point took me several hours to pin-point the issue and correct it).

Again, that's just a small example. But enough to point out that the statement "Tablets are toys" is false.

No, tablets are toys, you cannot get around that.
However I consider toys good and useful things.

It might be pointed out that Maemo devices were initally "Nokia Internet Tablets".

Definition of toy:

: something a child plays with
: something that an adult buys or uses for enjoyment or entertainment

Although the tablet can be used as a toy.. There are many other examples of uses (like the one I mentioned above) that does not make it a toy exclusively.

I do not quite follow that line of reasoning. If you had said that 8 hours is fine for a desktop replacement then I would understand. That is pretty much where laptops fit. But 8 hours for something that, by your own emphasis, is NOT aiming to replace a desktop? For something that, by its very nature, is meant to be mobile?

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the portable counterparts of the desktop computers of the same era had a battery life counted in weeks or months (Sharp PC 1500, HP 95LX...). Similar counterparts in 2010s barely manage through the day. What went wrong?
