    People know ipad. Ipad 2 is much more interesting and whorthwhile than some pc makers new tablet. Facetime..Rentina display!! Apps!

    HP really needs to impress. I'm talkin battery life...screen... Apps.... And all around visual brilliance.

    or I DID know the word but didn't know exactly what the word meant and thus learned something today??

    maybe I didn't know how to spell the word and AGAIN thanks for that....

    OH NO....none of the above....it was the pronounciation...... I couldn't say it right

    thanks for setting the record straight
