I'm posting this mostly to check it out when I have more time, but it might be of interest to others as well.

It's an account, week by week, of this family's cutting of the cable TV cord and just using over the air and internet TV.

The link above goes to an HP Slate preview.

As tablets get more advanced, I'm trying to think of what I would need a desktop for. Webcam? Included. Headphone jack? Included. Data input ports? Included. About the only thing my desktop has that this doesn't is a CD drive. Time to start converting all our DVDs and CDs!

Of course, it is very "cloud dependent." They've still got a ways to go, but by the time this desktop computer dies, I might not need to buy another one, just a tablet. Wouldn't that be sweet?

Granted, this is only one article. I know LCDs are cheaper in the smaller sizes, but my hesitations have always been the "washed out" look of LCDs because they don't have the levels of black that a plasma set has and the fact that LCDs can't really be viewed from an angle. I don't know if these new LCDs or the OLEDs are going to fix either of those problems.
