Netbooks eat power while sleeping.

To me that is an incredible plus for the iPad that all the iPad wannabes are going to fail to match if they keep the weight lite. If they equip their iPad with Windows 7 or Android with a heavy 24 volt marine battery of course they will have a more or less portable tablet that lasts as long as an iPad. They just will never have thin and lite weight with long life as the iPad does. If they came close it will be butt ugly slow as one way to save power is to slow down the CPU.
They may produce smoke and mirrors and a lot of geek noise but if you look closely enough they will fail in one of these areas.
