You need to check recent prices. Sure, you can pay $150+ for a router but there are many decent ones out there for $40 or less.

Luckily, I already have one of those. I'm not a complete Luddite - just close

Guess I'm a "tweener".
Between my smartphone, laptop, & desktop I have yet to feel the need for a tablet. Although I can see my next laptop being a Win8 hybrid ("touchscreen laptop").

I got the first significant pang for a tablet sitting in the Auto Train waiting room in Lorton VA, with all the retirees around me (snowbirds heading down to Florida for the winter) using them, while all I had was my (comparatively) big, bulky laptop, practically unusable in a busy waiting room.
