Speed Matters

I bought a Samsung N150 netbook in early 2011.  That’s a tiny little laptop with an Atom processor, 2GB RAM, and a 10” screen.  It was tolerable, but slow nevertheless.  A few months later, I bought a Galaxy Tab 10.1v.  From then on, I started preferring the tablet for any task, and used the laptop only for things that the tablet is not very good at.  (Anything that involves typing text or multitasking.)

In December 2011, I bought a Toshiba ultrabook, which is way faster than the Samsung laptop.  Now I see that I prefer to use the Toshiba over the tablet.  I guess it’s not the form factor that makes me like or dislike a device, but the speed.  I just hate waiting for machines.
