    I really cannot think of any other than it would be more like a laptop without a keyboard. browsers would have tabs and you could minimize screens and work between screens easier.

    Chrome no, but Google's attempt to go fuchsia intrigues me and I would like to see them put out something like a surface pro with the merged Android-chrome hybrid that is priced closer to that of the Samsung chromebook plus vs the pixelbook

    It surprises me that Microsoft has had good success with the Surface Pro, but wasn't able to do well with the Windows Phone.

    I liked the surface pro looks, too bad the os is worthless and it is so expensive :) I have considered chromebooks in the past but that was as far as it went. to me android is more powerful.
