Microsoft recently unveiled the latest hardware for its Surface computing technology - the Samsung SUR40 - which will set you back a hefty $8400. It comes in the form of a table, and isn't really aimed at home use. EXOPC's EXOdesk, however, will only set you back $1299. ExoPC put up a promotional video today.
EXOPC is not a newcomer - they've built and shipped the EXOPC slate, a Windows 7 tablet with their own unique user interface. The EXOdesk contains hints of the same user interface, which isn't all that surprising. IT could be that the EXOdesk is not necessarily an entire computer, but a multitouch display which interacts with the EXOPC software on your regular Windows machine.
The $1299 price point is of course very aggressive, but only time will tell if they manage to actually hit this target next year. In any case, I'm very happy they're trying to be innovative, and I can definitely see a lot of uses for such a display. I mean, why buy a graphics tablet when you can have one of these? A lot of creative folk are going to be really happy with this device.
