It's still not a fair comparison. Because you're making it sound like I'm
"settling" for a tablet that is "Good Enough" because it is cheaper. I'm
not doing that at all. I'm getting more features.
So unless Yugos come with a built-in voice activated GPS communication &
media console - and park assist - and a rear-view camera... and the Trans
Am doesn't have a stereo system at all, or an air conditioner - and that
Trans Am costs twice as much as the Yugo. It's not a fair comparison.
The Yugo might not have as much get-up-and-go as the Trans Am, and doesn't
have the well-respected brand name... but it is better in every other
