Hardware, Embedded Systems "Efforts are split between models in which keyboards detach from screens, ones in which the keys remain attached but can be hidden behind displays, and traditional fixed clamshell designs." None of these really float my boat. They work with clunky connectors and weird hinges, while I'd much rather have Surface's nice magnetic connection. On top of that, Surface just looks way better than this stuff. Pretty clear why Microsoft felt the need to make their own hardware.

piss poor design

The reason why all of these models are showing up that are a mix between a traditional PC and a tablet are because Windows 8 is broken from a design standpoint.

You can't make a great piece of hardware when the operating system it is meant to run is crap and the developers themselves do not know WTF it is supposed to be!

Is it a PC? Yes. Is it a Tablet OS? YES! Is it a frankenstein joke? Oh YES INDEED.

For the first time ever I have zero interest in the latest version of windows.
