A tablet does not have
- A keyboard
- A big screen size
- Specs of a laptop
- Great battery life
I would be able to carry a mobile keyboard with me in my backpack for school, or for work (which my job uses a computer for everything).
The battery life could be a problem, but most of the time you are near an outlet, and you are probably using a keyboard when you are using the full OS, thus you are carrying a backpack or something to bring a power cable with. In a couple of years graphine or silocine will allow much more battery life though.
Specs, it is apparent that laptops and tablets are going to fight it out to the death. Laptops are dying, so companies like Acer and Apple are releasing ultrabooks. Tablets coming out this year will have 4 cores (a 5th one for power management). With that many cores and a gig of RAM already in phones, who knows what they can put in a high quality tablet, performance is not as big an issue than it was just one year ago.
Screen size, theseshould do the trick if you are that dedicated to your screens, I know its probably more than you will spend on the tablet, but its what we have now and it will only get better, smaller and cheaper in time.
EDIT: Windows 8 will have an app store. Hopefully, lots of good apps will be released for it. Either way you can run full programs like iTunes (which is the best music player for a desktop in my opinion.
