To buy a apple product is way far off budget..
the DT webpad looks promising
I could go for a cheap android tablet 7-10 inch
run a dell axim with wince app.. witch i had a soo so operating axim 50v witch had wifi and a tabletop cradle and seemed to run ok for a interface..
On the most part...
#1 - getting a new house might put hybrid as a main interface with a 19" touch screen on wall in the
kitchen or attached area for main access.
#2 - pda -or- android tablet's for roaming orbiters per room or level..
#3 - rf/bt mini keyboard/touch mouse / gyration remote's as main control per media area's
the one thing is I use Firefox alot in my room and living room but it sounds like the orbitor keyboard/mouse input might get trashed "shame"
