...to understand this table that compares Tablet PCs to various types of burgers.

Which is best, which is worst, and what on earth is a "A&W Rootbeer Burger Meal, with Frosty Root Beer Mug" when it's at home?

Though I do like "In-N-Out" a lot...

Hmmm ... that's an amazingly subjective list, although some of the comparisons are pretty straightforward (I'm confident I wouldn't want anything described as "Breaded Meat Substance", for instance!)

A&W is/was the pluperfect drive-in chain of the 1950s and 60s; their specialty was a particularly tasty rootbear served in large, frosted mugs by girls in short skirts who carried the food right out to your car, and excellent hamburgers.

Unfortunately, what remains of A&W today is pretty godawful. So I'd want to know whether the reviewer was thinking nostalgicaally of the old A&W, or its ghastly modern counterpart.

(Since I still really really want a tablet PC, I'm interested in this, but I don't know enough about the author's tastes to assess the list. For instance: Comparing the Gateway to White Castles. White Castles are really nasty little burgers, but people who like them are almost fanatical about it ...)
