My goal when purchasing a tablet was to have something that was: 1: Improved battery life. 2: Better for entertainment. 3: Still be productive for remote server work (RDP) and taking notes in meetings. I first purchased a Viewsonic G-Tab. This had a poor screen, horrible software and was unstable after installing a custom ROM. Basically a low end device with a nice processor. I then tried the Samsung 7" tablet. The build quality was great and the screen was nice but the 7" form factor was too small. I took the Samsung back and decided to wait for the Adam. I finally received my Adam about a month late. The build quality was better than the GTab but the battery life wasn't great and the LCD (standard LCD) wasn't much better than the G-Tab. While RDP and note taking was better than the 7" tablet I wasn't nearly as productive as I was with my netbook. Battery life wasn't very good either. So, a couple months later the ASUS Transformer comes out. It was the same price as the Adam with more memory, and a better screen in a smaller package. I didn't bite right away because I just spent $400 on the Adam. I waited for about a month to see what people thought of them and when the reviews were positive I finally got the Transformer with the Keyboard. What a huge difference! The tablet is better in every way. With the keyboard I can be productive, the battery life is great, the screen is great and the device is much better for entertainment purposes (games) than my netbook. So, the goal of replacing the netbook with something that is entertaining, has better battery life and still provides the productivity I need has been accomplished. From what I read on the Notion Ink site people are still buying Adams. In my opinion, unless you absolutely need the dual mode screen, the Adam is a bad choice. I gave my Adam to my 12 year old boy. He loves it but doesn't have to get any work done with it. Hopefully I have learned my lesson and will wait for the market to mature a bit instead of buying one of the first devices to hit the market.
