There they go again counting tablet's as PC's.Which they are NOT!..Who ever started coining that phrase should be beating or something till they understand the difference. Apple doesn't make PC's they make/design tablets,iphones,ect. the closest they get to PC's are maybe mac's,airbooks etc.

I don't know Guest... They might not be the definition of a personal computer (PC) that you're thinking of, but they are a personal computing device. They have a processor, memory, and an operating system. The user interface and performance differ from more expensive units, for now, but that doesn't put them in a lesser category, such as the territory that a microwave oven or handheld calculator would occupy.
