    I agree, nice to see them going in this direction. "Surface-like". When we shopping for laptops for the wife a couple months ago, she almost went with this really sweet Sony where the screen could be flipped over ontop of the keyboard so you could use it as a tablet. That thing was amazingly thin for a laptop. (it was only 14" though and that was a problem) Being that we just purchased our S5s and we've already got tablets, she ended going with a standard 17" laptop. Even though we rarely use CD/DVDs anymore, she wanted a drive anyway for movies & software we already have. Plus, the fact that you can get a 17" laptop these days for under 1000 bucks, that's absolutely packed to the gills hardware-wise, made it even more attractive (and practical) for what she was looking for.
    I should add that she's big into PC gaming, so the larger screen was an issue in that respect as well.


    tap'n on my S5

    I wanted one of these tab/phones when Asus started making them. It is a really great idea. And the dual boot nature of this seems to offer a potential for productivity and overall usefulness that businesses should take note. Applications for this setup are far reaching.

    I'd be all over it if it had Windows 10 on it :)
