 I still have to respectfully disagree. The Nexus 7 doesn't have an HDMI
out. I can get around that with software because it runs the latest OS and
it supports software for that sort of thing. It doesn't have a card slot. I
can use cloud storage. Thats about all its doesn't have. If you've seen a
Yugo that came from the manufacturer with all those features, I'd love to
see that too.

My point was that everybody buys what they think is right for them. If the
cheap tablets work for you, awesome. If you need a HDMI out, then the Nexus
is not for you. Very few tablet users that I know use that. I have an HDMI
out on my smartphone that I thought was awesome when I got it. I've never
used it. However you obviously use yours, so its a something you need to
have. You're not getting more features, you're just getting different ones.
Ones that aren't useful for me but are for you. I'm getting features that
you apparently don't need, but I do. It's just another Mac vs PC argument
that nobody wins.
