Na, no better than using an iPhone anyway. Since the new Controller has been announced, no smart phone or Internet tablet or computer will compare. That's my 2 cents anyways! Ymmv...

Isn't this the combo which will pop up a window telling you your screen
resolution was too small to run Windows reasonably?... Some of Windows'
dialogs don't fit that screen. Try hitting the Cancel button :-)

Most annoying is that it needs to rebuild its wireless conection when you turn it on. So if you want to skip a number it will take 10 to 15 seconds. I stopped using it after only days. The controller doesnt seem to have this problem.

It's nice that these devices can control slimserver, but they are not nice to control slimserver as a primary controller (now the controller is ere, or even an touch).

But with the SS Duet remote it appears not to display multiple albums at once on screen with album art? Any screenshots with on screen images?
