It must be nice in that little black and white world of yours where everyone else's needs and wants must either be the same as yours or completely ridiculous. I would imagine it makes coping with the world much easier to be able to simplify it in such a way.
Tablets and laptops are two totally different markets. It is not an either/or type of situation unless you personally are making it one for some reason.
My wife and I each have a desktop, a laptop, and a tablet. We tend to use all three at different times and for different purposes with very little in the way of overlap. She also has a smartphone which I can't be bothered with. My tablet does all the same stuff and has a screen my old eyes can actually read. Her job forces her to be more mobile than I am though, so a smaller device is a benefit. I like having a phone that is well...a phone. I am enjoying it while I can, everytime I go into the phone store it seems like that section of "just phones" is getting smaller.
