I may not be keeping up with this well, but I am wondering what advantage does it have over an laptop or tablet? I suppose there is little setting up to do, so that would be one thing.
But it is sure slick, I can picture that on my table by the pool.

One thing is it would eliminate all the constant harping about getting Windows to behave. Every day it's something!

Ya that's what I'm thinking Jim. Every one has a different set up, some try with too slow a computer and then there is the audio set up, with this new product all this is taken care of. Much better for customer support.

I am not sure how much windows is involved. However, the point is that it won't become corrupted by outside malware, or other forms of corruption that plague a hard drive on an operating system.

I was pleased to see the constant interest that hams showed at the convention. There wasn't a time I didn't see their booths swarmed with lookie loos.
