simply wished you owned.

the 15in MacBook Pro, Asus Eee Pad Transformer and the Samsung Series 9.

with a large professional product going up against an ultra slim device and
what is essentially a tablet.

clear that they felt one overall had the outstanding battery life, great value and
flexibility which made it a superb product and
