(Slightly higher watt-hr rating but Win7 has always been a guzzler.)

So you’re dead right: it’s just as funny as comparing a GMC Silverado to a lineup of sports sedans. Nobody will tell you you’re an idiot for buying the Dell monster, but it just ain’t designed to do what tablets do.

Now as for your childish name-calling: yes, people might disparage your social, emotional AND intellectual quotients.

Yes, the average iPad will be a several-month-old design when sold but Apple is making the case here that it skates towards where the puck will be, at least as well as competitors. You can’t say that your eponym tablet had a competitive edge even for the 5 days it was on sale before this; you can’t say that the Playbook has a competitive edge despite more flexible timing and you can’t say the Galaxy, despite being on its second iteration, looks more powerful/attractive/nicely-s/w-equipped.

So your point is theoretically true but not actually. Not at all.
