As Xie mentioned, the ipad isn't a (portable) alternative to a mac/netbook. Yes, the ipad can't do a lot of the things that a Netbook can, but it also can't do a lot of the things that a Mac can either.
I see the ipad as no different to a ipod/iphone but with a massive screen.
ipod touch + SIM...
I'm assuming you mean chinese characters printed on the keys?
Not sure if this would be a better option: Chinese keyboard stickers
Cheaper to buy stickers than to get a new piece of hardware that does exactly the same thing. All you need is the Traditional Chinese IME for your computer.
Intel core i7 ftw! :devious:
Don't worry about the new 4k sector HDDs, the manufacturers are just setting the minimum allocation to 4k to reduce file fragmentation. You can format your existing HDD to 4k (when you install a clean copy of Windows).
You're better off using 1600 x 1200 or 1920 x 1200, if your TV can support it.
1920 x 1080 is a crap for normal usage on a PC, it's more for movies than anything else.
What you could do is put the windows side-by-side though.. :-)
I don't like Backstage. It's literally like opening a new window just to see the menu option. I prefer Office 2007 layout where it's just a drop down menu with the document visible in the background.

I've got NOD and MSE on my laptop... not noticed any impact on performance. However, I have noticed one would throw up warning messages about detecting trojans etc on one website and the other throwing up warnings on another website.
Not sure if Spybot does this silently (on my other pc) because...
I'm not 100% sure what you mean, but you can still have your shortcuts on the taskbar and have it split into two rows, 1 for your shortcuts and 1 for the task windows.
Better still, if they're shortcuts to folders, then why not right-click and drag to the Windows Explorer icon and Pin it to the...
This isn't going to help you (in the short term) so don't hit me with a hammer.
When I first started using Windows 7 I hated the new taskbar. However, after spending some time using it, it actually is much better than that of XP. So, I think you shouldn't look back to making it look and feel...
I can't get XP mode to work on my laptop that has T5500 cpu (supported according to the most websites). Does the motherboard have to support it too? There's no option in the BIOS for VT.
The tool on the MS VirtualPC website says my machine does not have Hardware-assisted virtualization.
