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.

It would be cool to have a tablet with a tablet OS, dock it and it switches to a traditional OS.

But I guess it won't be very practical for programmers, basically having to create 2 quite different GUIs. Then again it's not that unrealistic.
