  So far the answer to accuracy and brightness is "yes," but by a tiny, anal margin, much like the higher DPI. Skil said "best," not "noticeably best." My 63 year old mother has an iPad 2, and can't tell the difference between her iPad and my wife's iPad 3. As for battery length, at the same settings of brightness, it runs about 20 minutes less than the ipad 3, which isn't a huge deal considering that's still over 9 hours of playback.
  I had that same thought, and it would make sense, as it's worked very well for Intel.
  Well, the screen of the Nexus 10 IS better, by a not slim margin, and there is a good chance it's faster too, which will show when both are finally benchmarked. As for the last point, most versatile, Android is largely more open and adaptable then iOS, while iOS has more apps currently, so one could argue it both ways.   I find it interesting that AI hasn't said word one about the Nexus 10, or the Nexus 4, for that matter, nor anything about the spec and price bumped 7....
  Probably, just the same way the iPhone's refresh cycle was bumped from June/July to September/October.
I put a lot of thought into this, and fondled one the other night at the Apple store for a good half hour, but I decided to pass and just get an SSD for my 2009 13" MBP.   While I loved the screen and the size/weight, that price is ridiculous.   Here's hoping things improve with the 2013 revision.
And not for nothing, but the new iPads have said "Shipping in 1 week" since they were first posted on the Apple store website last Friday. I know because I've been watching them to gauge interest, since my wife's two week old iPad 3 is going back on Friday as soon as Best Buy opens, and if they went out of stock quickly that would tell me demand was high and I need to be there at 8 when they open. Otherwise, I was just going to go on my lunch break.
  If you'd said Audi or Porsche, I'd agree with you, but Beemers are status symbols bought for prestige and not performance.
  That cow box was awesome. Establishing brand identity through things like a spotted box that stood out in a sea of brown boxes was a trick Apple itself copied and mastered in the mid to late 90's.   Back in it's Sioux City Iowa, still family owned days, Gateway 2000 had the second highest reliability in the PC market, so I'm not understanding what you feel any owner should be embarrassed about. Perhaps you thought this was an android-centered article, and required your...
  Which was ironic, since Gateway also pioneered the concept of "built to order" PC's back in the 80's, which Dell would later run with and make their name off of. My first real computer was a Gateway 2000 486-66DX2 with two full megs of RAM, which was a requirement because Wing Commander III ran like garbage under anything less. When it arrived, it came with a nice shiny folder which included a thank you note signed by the cell of four employees who put it together for...
Did Dell ever have a retail operation? I don't recall any. Gateway 2000, soon after simply Gateway Inc, pioneered the concept of a corporate run, single brand computer retail store called Gateway Country in the late 90's. I worked at one for about a year, and from the welcoming cafe-like setup where customers were invited to sit down and explore the systems, to the in-house full featured tech support, Apple Stores seemed like a carbon copy of those Gateway Country...
