The only simple fact here is, that you are trying to shove your personal opinion down everyone's throat, which doesn't make any argument at all, but does makes you look arrogant, clueless or both.
For a PC, you can have a Mac.
Yes. And for a Mac, you can get a PC. Or two.
Smartphone? iPhone is the best game in town.
Relative, like everything else. I'm yet to meet iPhone, SG3 or WP7.5 user who is actually not happy with his/her phone. I know people who like it large, and people who like it smaller. I know people who like tinkering, and I know people who don't. Hell will freeze before all of them choose same device as best for their needs.
Tablet? anything other than an iPad is a downgrade.
Same target, same distance.
Games? Get the Wii U and you'll have the best out there. Plus the internet services are *gasp* free...
Unreleased console with limited number of titles (and even more limited number of original titles), limited storage that will hurt availability of number of games that do require to be installed on HDD, unknown (presumed) 3-core CPU and unknown graphics. It has potential to end up a bit better than current consoles in some ways, worst in others, and nowhere near any decent gaming PC, by looking at available info (heatsink, internal fan and other images, available specs). My opinion is guessing much as yours, but at least I've tried to support it with some arguments.
anyone buying into an MS ecosystem only has themselves to blame. They aren't even hiding it anymore.
Nor are you hiding your uninformed arrogance.
Free music is great. but it's hardly the only game in town either in that regard. and as mentioned earlier, we will see how long it is free, or like Gmail, what the "free" actually costs you in terms of privacy.
Hotmail (or Outlook.com) is free, and considered safest available, much as I could find out on the web, from reviewers whose knowledge and experience actually give some worth to their opinion..
