Why, do you need Windows to operate a computer. Actually, no and the operating system on it is faster for it. Now waiting for a file to open. No files filled with crap that causes them to bloat to 25 MB. And what do you do with your Galaxy when the batteries die. You have to plug it in and wait while I just pop in some fresh batteries.
So you can run excel without windows???

And again you eat your hooves again.......
I have spred sheets that are gigs......As a matter of fact I just built one for leasing yachts and airplanes that is over 10 gigs......

Many options.
Plug it in and it works instantly
Plug it in to a lap top or portable battery.
Install 4 aa batteries in the included charger.
But I carry a universal charger a little thinner than my iPhone that will charge my iPhone, camera or tablet.......

Thousands of people living on sailboats and many of them without electricity. Junks sailing around Asia and dhows sailing arount the Persian Gulf in some cases use kerosene lanterns for running lights. Of course the moneied in crowd sailing to Fiji would not want those working boats docked next to their expensive toys.
As for video, Hollywood makes millions making videos that have nothing to do with reality. Anyplace with a real winter would not be a good place for your solar hot water heater unless there was heat tape wrapped around those pipes to keep them from freezing. After all, a twenty degree night with a fifteen knot wind would have a wind chill low enough to freeze them solid or close enought to it to insure that your morning shower would be a real eye opener.
Sure you have told me repeatedly that I am an ignorant fool. Repeating something over and over will not change it into a fact. Nor will claiming I have hooves stuck in my mouth every day. I not sure why you have a focus on it. Maybe you have some carnal attraction to barnyard animals.
I am taking about sail boats in the million dollar price Range.........
How does your hooves taste again???

Why would you sick your foot in your mouth again......
I posted a link for you..
Solar water heaters work great in the snow and cold...
How many links would you like showing scalding hot water when the outside temperature is below freezing?

No you don't need heat tape.....If you had even one brain cell you would have looked at the link or googled it yourself..........ROFLMAO

In Colorado at 10k feet in January with outside temperatures of below zero there is plenty of hot water for a family of 6.......LOL

Have you ever heard of insulation?????
Do you know what it does???
They have systems built just for these cold climates.

The place in Colorado has 300 gallon tank that is heated up in the winter to over 150 degrees from the solar panels and that is more than enough hot water....

But just in case the water that leaves that storage tank flows into a gas hot water heater....
If the incoming water is hot enough the water heater never comes on.
But say you are filling up all 5 of the sunken tubs in the bathrooms then the gas water heater kicks in

Oh by the way that system paid for itself in less than two years in gas savings alone......

Google what a EVAC solar collector is and you will see they are built like a triple pain window.........LOL

Please tell us why you would be so stupid to comment on things you know nothing about???

Lets see........LOL

You claimed a 25 mb spreadsheets was full of garbage but in the fin ace and insurance industry it is common for spreadsheets to be gigs.....

You have claimed you need heat tape on a solar water heater in cold country when you could have looked at the link I provided for you and seen you are wrong before you opened your mouth and crammed all four hooves in again.....

You have claimed sail boats don't use solar but your own link proved you wrong....

Today you compare multi million dollar sail boats to junk from china.......

I guess you never heard the saying......

It is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt........LOL

I am sure a novice like you has a 10 gig spread sheet. After all, an expert could trim it down and make it faster and more efficent.

Problem with plugging things in is that you need a place and your are stuck until you have charged it in. Put you someplace where you cannot and you are out of luck. Meanwhile that old Model 100 is still going strong. I discovered that it has great battery life. And for those places where your cell phone is showing no service you can use a radio modem to connect.

Yes, you are talking about million dollar sailboats on the west coast of the US and I am talking about sail boats all around the earth.

As for how many links, how about one accurate one instead of hundreds of propaganda. Here is a hint, not everything on the internet is true.

Will it drive a 150 miles per hour like my Porsche?

There are over 100 columns and 150 rows
And each row has a picture as the spreadsheets are converted into both online and desk top calculators.......

I see you are so stupid you don't even understand that you can even buy a charger for your phone that uses AA batteries...

Or that you can buy a rechargeable power supply that will recharge your phone, tablet or even laptop..........LOL

Here Durecell even makes one..........LOL

I have yet to see a Porsche that can hold sevn people, haul, a boat or drive in the sand. Then again the only ones I have seen are sports cars. As for the sand, Saw a VW Bug handle driving on a Naples Italy Beach with no problem. It was light and the sand was packed. Actually I remember how popular the old VW was with those who did kit cars. They could take the old VW and turn it into something like a sport car. With the exception of speed the old VW could do everything that the porsche could do. And do it cuter.

As for the contest between a tablet and the Model 100, can your table program a micro controller with a RS 232C port. They still make them and use them in modern industry. I also run models on a deskop that would cause your tablet to crash. The point being that like tools, that different tools are useful for different situations. You would not use a screwdriver to tighten a bolt or a cresent wrench to tighten a screw.
