    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7

    The Future is happening NOW, because all of the apps we use are now based on Services and Websites which are provided on the Net, and the Programs for those services are basically Dumb Terminals, as was predicted in 1995 or so.

    my iPad Mini for instance, the power went out in my house last night for 9 hours, and I had NO Wifi for my PADD. It therefore became a useless appendage until the power came back up at 3:00am

    But my iPhone was still connected, and I used THAT to communicate with other people in the blackout area. Or play a game the games all connect to the net, or fool around with some app, and the APP depends on a Website. So Without Wifi it was SLooowwwww, 3G, even though they now have LTE in my area.

    That's how you check the state of the net, how useful is your portable computer, really, WITHOUT the net? If you can do a few things without access, then you yourself have beaten this necessity. But most users of Tablets, fall into the category of, No IP Service, No Access, don't even bother to turn the device ON.
