Question: I'm considering replacing my PC with a tablet, and never having used one I'm curious if they can do what I need. I don't plan to run games on it; I know they're not likely strong enough for that. But I would like to run some programs like Microsoft Word, Excel and Photoshop CS5. Obviously I'm confident I could easily get a tablet with strong enough hardware for those. But I don't know if, for example, they can only run specialized Apps and not typical PC programs, or whether they can easily download documents in the same manner as a PC at all. Basically, I don't know if they're more like a portable and weak PC or just a big powerful smart phone that can't call.
