To an extent you can, though you might have to click something onscreen in place of using a keyboard shortcut (or touch it, a lot faster). The Ctrl C/Ctrl V is the only bit that irritates me, really.
Going hands-on with a tablet is the best way you'll find out what you can/can't live with, though.
1) Yes, you get a mouse pointer when using the trackpad.
2) Keyboard commands don't generally work. There's a row of buttons similar to Fn commands on a laptop that can be used, but shortcuts such as Alt-Tab or Ctrl+C/V won't work.
If you're switching between tasks, you can go into the 'menu' icon that persistently stays on screen and select an app that's already open from there (or go to the home screen and reopen it, if it's already open, it just switches to it).
Well, I don't think I'll bother screwing with my laptop screen anytime soon. The company that set it up for me went bankrupt a while ago (Kobalt) and it's out of warranty by now anyway.
I'm hoping it lasts quite a while longer so I don't have to shell out another £1000+ for an equivalent custom build.
I wish I could, I'm stuck with an old cable modem that doesn't allow a DNS change at the moment.
Still, that'll need to be swapped out soon enough in order to accommodate the latest upgrade in speed on the minimum packages (a Motorola modem from 2001 will only last so long!)
For the same reason everyone always wants the newest version of anything, of course. It's a free update with improvements and people want to try it out.
And I think Google have been updating old versions up to a point. Manufacturers and telcos slow the update process down by wanting to 'test' everything before it goes OTA, though.
