|I still use my two-year-old Acer laptop most of the time. 8-30.|
Then I saw my suking store, xT Pro, carry it.
Then I salivated.
I had been considering the iPad for my dad, for him to read PSE quotation reports in. Before that, I had tried to find out if the iPhone could download PDF files. I was discouraged with the Apple products when I realized that PDF did not come naturally like it does in PCs, and that the iPad does not have flash disk capacity.
My teen niece showed me how files are transferred using the iPad.
My friends who own iPads say that they use WiFi to transfer files, which is a bummer for me as my Globe Broadband is slow and my Linksys router is so old my suking tech guy Anton told me to change it.

I needed a touch screen because my dad, who is not computer-literate, did not like using the mouse or mousepad.
When I found out online that I could transfer files to and from the Transformer using a USB, I plotted to buy it.
The top costs something like P 22,000, which is cheaper than an iPad which cost about P 25,000 for 16 GB when I got the Transformer last August.

I didn't bother to find out the other technical details of the Transformer. I just consulted Handy Cobankiat who happened to be xT's customer, and Boy Kuripot.
I was hoping for a laptop, though.
I often find myself wanting to get data from people while standing up and wished that my laptop had an organizer that I could remove from it, much like a wallet that you could take out from your bag when you don't feel like bringing the whole thing.
Well, although my dad figured out how to use the Transformer to read his stock reports, he could not appreciate the ability to increase the size of what he was reading. He still wanted his reports printed out.

The new Acer has more than 200G, unlike my current one which holds 160 G.
Now that my dad doesn't want to use the Transformer, buying a third computer is too much.
My dad wanted to know if he could watch the stock market report in real time. Like the iPad, the Transformer cannot read Java.
|The keyboard and the rest of the Transformer is pretty.|
