I've a media centre pc that evolves around a PC build. I use this for the likes of XBMC, PowerDVD, and then booting up an internet browsing from say iPlayer, 4OD, Channel 5 catch up etc. It's rarely used to browse the internet and it never gets used to play games. I've currently a Logitech Mini Dinovo which when working is ace, but seems to be plagued with becoming unresponsive when resuming from sleep. I'm in the midst of trying to fix this with various ideas flaunted about the net, but that aside. I'm tempted by the idea of a tablet. This will replace the above keyboard/ mouse and hopefully add XBMC support so that I can control the media centre/ what is playing through the tablet. I would also like to be able to control the PC, so move the mouse about I guess so I can minimise XBMC and load up other programs such as PowerDVD etc and also use it to input the odd thing of data when organising my media or directing a browser to a webpage. It's main use would be for controlling the media centre. Due to this requirement, I quite like the look of the Google Nexus 7 due to it's smaller size than the iPad for example. I mention the Google pad as I caught a review of it which spurred my research, but I've never used one, only a brief fling with an iPad. It's second use would be using the rest of it's abilities. Maybe it'll take over browsing the net a bit off my iphone when the PC's aren't turned on. So is using a tablet the new media centre remote? Is it seemless and easy to do, or will swapping from the XBMC app to an app to move a mouse about etc become a pain? What do you use to and what do you control with is the question of my day chaps? Cheers. FN: I put this into the Home entertainment section as opposed to the tablet section as I am interested in their use for media centre capabilities, not general specs of the units. I hope that it can stay in here.
