Aloha Y'all,

Today I ate lunch watching Hangman on YouTube. I started out with my new iPad. In FS mode it was start-stop, start-stop. So I switched to my A9 Win7 Starter. In FS mode Flash crashed once (my 1st Flash crash ever) about 12 minutes in, then played fine to the end at 1h31m.

I like the responsiveness of the iPad and the 10 hour battery life, but the A9 came through for me when the iPad didn't.

Allen

Ipad you had to use an app based version of youtube, where the A9 you had the full site at your disposal. I definitely think the ipad excels at certain things, typing being one of the major advantages and that is due to the screen, however, you can plug in a USB keyboard, whereas with the ipad you cant.

What comparison are you talking about?

The A9 will use Flash, but the iPad uses HTML5 doesn't it ??

Yep!

Since I own both I'm comparing them from an End User perspective: For example, Hulu blocks the iPad which does work (albeit haltingly) on the A9. Kindle OTH operates more smoothly on the iPad than on the A9. The A9, however, let's me listen to my radio stations via Winamp and the iPad doesn't. The iPad's Keyboard is large and easier too use than the Win7 OSKeyboard, except there are no arrow keys nor a tab key.

Unlike Obi, I regard comparison between the A9 and the iPad as worthwhile especially as I'm learning which works best for me in the variety ways I want to use a tablet.
