I like the look of the Asus; however, Ipad has so much apps and apps that I could use for my autistic boys; however, no card slot, how the heck can someone go without that? Anyway, if you have an Asus, Xoom, Ipad ~ please tell me the Pros and Cons of them. Still deciding on what would be the best buy for me? Going to be using it for school, weather, emails, facebook, games during waiting for the doctor to come in type of stuff. I just don't want to buy on impulse and regret my decision later. It would be nice to use rather than lugging my laptop around town or on trips. Also I am a reader as well and love reading books on my Nook, but I like some color as well and Nook Color does not have what I need.
