Dell’s new Tablet PC- they come out trash talking

Dell has chosen to use their Direct2Dell blog to promote their upcoming Tablet PC.  Their entry into the Tablet space has a lot of folks pretty excited as witnessed by the response to their first look video on the blog.  Now they’re back with a second video that addresses what you should do with a Tablet PC that drives you crazy.  Their answer is to cut it in half (in this case a Toshiba M400) with a table saw.  It’s an interesting marketing ploy but it leaves me with mixed feelings.  On the one hand I’m glad that Dell is continuing to turn up the excitement level for the new Tablet but on the other hand this video leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth.  I don’t mind Dell trash talking the competition, we’re used to that.  But to me when you do that in a video like this and don’t show or discuss why your Tablet will be better then it’s just trash talking.  It’s like politicians that sling mud without explaining why they are better than their opponent.  It only goes so far with me.  I am looking forward to Dell releasing more video that actually shows off their new product.  Now that will be cool.
