    I think something like this would solve all the current issues I'm having in my office.

    I may not be able to game on it but I sure could use it for everything else.

    Not interested in a 13" tablet. This device with a 10" screen could be a winner, assuming it switches between Windows and Android quickly enough.

    Pretty good specs - I'd guess the high-end configuration would retail for at least $1800, basically a pretty good ultrabook that dual boots Android.
