    If you use a good "old fashioned" laptop the Sling client software is free and you get a bigger and better display in most cases. Plus you can load up the laptop with a lot more shows than can fit on a mobile device since storage is much greater. Plus you don't need to transcode the shows to H.264 so you can leave them at their original quality when using a laptop. So personally I much, much prefer using a laptop for viewing outside the home.

    That's a good point, but laptops aren't always convenient to use. Like on an airplane. Plus their batteries typically only last a couple hours when playing video vs 10+ hours for an iPad.
