    Not at the moment. I wouldn't rule out ever buying one. It would have to be cheap though.

    No is the simple answer. I would not say I would never have one but have no plans anytime in the near future to get one. Desktop, laptop, and android phone is more than enough for what I need, or want.

    I do not own one currently and i'm not planning to purchase any tablet in the future as of now. As someone mentioned, i'm not saying i will never purchase one but as of now and in the near future i have no plans to get one.

    Already got a Desktop (Home), Laptop (Desktop functionality with portability), Phone (Really convenient).

    Anyways, i rarely carry my laptop with me, maybe like once or twice a month (For college), the only thing i always have with me is the phone and it's more than enough. :D

    Nope. No plans to. I think it would be interesting to play with on an a daily basis, but without a need, I just don't see the reason to have one.

    I know some people in corporate america and in educational settings that are doing some pretty cool things with them though.

    Started using a tablet when the first ipad was released, switched to a samsung galaxy tab for a little while and now i have an ipad 3. It lets me do 90% of the things i need to do and offers far better portability and battery life than any laptop i've ever owned. Not to mention its great for entertaining the little nephew whether he wants to watch a movie, finger paint or play some games. Sadly the old laptop only gets fired up for gaming these days.

    I read an interesting article the other day which brought up another benefit of using a tablet.

    I just don't have a need/use for one, too big to be easily portable like my smart phone, too small/not powerful enough to be productive on like my laptop (I have had netbooks and ultra portable 12in laptops before), 14in screen is the smallest I can use all day.

    I got a 7" tablet for Christmas.

    Don't need it and don't use it.

    I voted 'Yes' because I have and use a tablet.

    It's been more convenient that my old 12" netbook - less hunching over to use the keyboard. I use it more for light gaming and media, and it's better streaming HD movies over my TV than the laptop was.

    I don't use it to browse unless the laptop is in use, and find anything involving typing is MUCH more effort-intensive than on a PC.

    No. I have no reason to get a tablet if anything it would just sit around and gather dust.

    Hi

    Not yet, but I have been thinking of buying one, waiting for the Asus Infinity TF700 to come to market. [maybe here next month]

    Take Care

    No and I do not plan to. I do not even have a touch phone, I tried it and I do not like it, button are buttons and a tactile feedback is important for me.

    Yes, I have an iPad 2. I use it mostly for light web browsing, e-mailing and watching videos.
