The Tap 20 is an All-in-One that can lay back flat. They have stuck a small battery in it so you can do things like move it to the dining room table for game night with the kids without messing with a power block and cord.

I think this will be our next home computer

So that's why they have not released a good reader this year. They were too busy developing a tablet for Giants

I am sure the Iranian Olympic Weight Lifting Champion who totaled about 650# got a few to keep track of his lifts.

Soon we will find wall hangers for them. And remotes. Wait, isn't that just a TV?

On a serious note, I don't know yet what place does it get in a typical home. But it might boom for some purpose we haven't yet discovered.

Well in our home it will sit on a little desk I built in to a closet in our guest room /office. Thats where we generally sit to do bills, have the kids do some school stuff or play games etc. but then we would pull it out to the living room for family time, birthday party video chatting, or when one of us would rather be out at the table doing some work instead of stuck in the room.

So instead of my youngest being 'alone' in the room down the hall painting in art rage he could be just a few feet away at the table while I make dinner etc
