Re: Tablet Discussions

said by El Quintron:

Tablets do have hardware in them... even if it ain't customizable, I think discussions of Hardware Spec inside said tablet is entirely appropriate for this forum...

I hear what you are saying but I make a distinction about a tablet based on if it is ARM or x86 / x64 based. If its ARM I don't consider it a PC AKA Personal Computer,...for which this forum is named. If its x86 / x64 based I consider it a PC tablet and a PC is a PC regardless of form-factor.

Its not that big of a deal to me either way though.

True... my only beef with not talking about ARM based tablets is that the discussion of what's inside a particular tablet doesn't necessarily belong in the Android forum.

I'm all for keeping it open regarding specs and tablet ram/gpus etc.
