    There are probably better devices for playing movies. I would think an android tablet or an Ipad would be a far better device. Movie watching has no bearing on the reasons I want this table. I need to do a lot more than merely watch things.

    My feeling exactly - any muiltimedia ability is just gravy - this device is going to be a workhorse and I'm not buying it to play Angry Birds and watch Lady Gaga videos.

    Not that I plan on watching movies, but 3 hours would let you watch most any movie out there. So I would hardly call that fail. But yeah, a dedicated consumption device is likely to do consumption better.

    Ha ha ha. I guess I do tend to get on my high horse, don't I. So few understand that the iPad is entertainment first with productivity shoe-horned in, while the Slate is the reverse (even though it media capabilities are pretty strong as well).
