Fair enough. I just don't care for tablets, but I like my netbook? Can't offer an explanation really, just I prefer what I prefer.
My netbook has a matte screen and I have seen people on the bus struggle or squint when a burst of sun glare hits their tablet's screen.... I've watched entire videos on my netbook on the bus with no problems.
And, also, keyboard vs touch screen. I so far haven't found many problems with my netbook.
Edited to add: The closest thing to a tablet I've used is a HipStreet e-reader (I bought it for my daughter and test drove it for her) which also takes videos. I tested a few videos riding on the bus, as well as a few epubs, and it was not as good an experience in reading as my netbook's screen.
