Anyway, I'd go Asus hands down. Doubly so if you already have Android apps since the Play store allows installing on all your devices.

iPad 2: Cons - must use iTunes, limited in setting apps and appearance on the display, pricey, will it sync with my non-apple devices? Pros - support and reliable product, lots of accesories, has Open Home Pro app...
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1: Cons - Samsung customer support doesn't have greatest reputation, Open Home Pro app unavailable, accessories limited and still need to research. Pros - can support Samsung who was sued by apple over this device which helps prevent 1 company from having a monopoly, stylus which has built in storage space, Android based, not limited by iTunes...

The iPad will pay for itself because
1) it has the app you NEED
2) the quality of Android and Android apps in general is noticeably worse
3) customers respect class and quality
4) self-respect = self-improvement
Most realtors I've seen try to upsell customers to quality homes, trifling over $100 when you are making commissions significantly greater than that seems a little silly and it goes against a realtor's credo. You should also charge the cost of the iPad as a business expense.

Samsung is a “chaebol” – one of the family-run conglomerates that dominate South Korean society. Almost Mafia-like in their obsessive secrecy and reach, chaebols have influence in most markets and industries in the country and wield huge political influence.
the grip of the chaebols is pernicious and corruption lies beneath every facet of Korean society.

As far as the "upselling" customers...guess you haven't seen the averages home buyer lately. We have an investors market here and I've been selling loads of $30,000 houses. Not exactly an iAnything type of clientele. But one can always hope!

I personally think everything ARM belongs in a phone or a kid's toy, and until we see ULV-notebook class CPU's in tablets I am not at all interested. It would also need to have a lot of improvements in touch response-time for me to consider one over a notebook. So I guess when this becomes reality and Haswell replaces Ivy in tablets (that's two large steps ahead) tablets will be alluring.

Shop for music, get recommendations, get apps, get podcasts... it's all pretty easy from the device, no computer necessary. Your post was essentially correct: You no longer need iTunes running on your PC unless you want to transfer files to your iDevice from your PC. But to be a pedantic ass, I would say that you do technically need iTunes - you just need it on your device.I don't think the "stuck with iTunes" is a valid argument anymore. What I mean is that if your primary use is for apps, then you don't actually need to use iTunes very often.

You never need to connect to your PC, as you can use Google's Drive site to store your files and then download them to your device (or Google Music to load audio files). Additionally, purchasing an app on the Play Store's web interface will let you push that app to the Android device of your choice, so you aren't locked into using either the Play app on the device nor some thick client on your PC.Isn't it pretty much the same for any Android device?
