Windows Computex is going on right now, and as was to be expected, we're seeing a whole boatload ot Windows 8 tablets... But also a few crazy contraptions that have 'want' written all over them. My personal favourite? The Asus Taichi: a laptop with two screens (both on the inside and the outside of the lid) so you have a laptop as well as a tablet. I love crazy experimentation like this - sure, it may not always work or pan out, but this is how mankind progresses. What I'll most likely be buying later this this year: this thing (although I prefer a smaller version). I love my ZenBook, so a relatively conventional Asus Windows 8 tablet is perfect for me.

3 YEARS late to the tablet party! WELCOME Microsoft! You are just in time to view your own devolution into irrelevance!

Thanks for bringing such a lackluster product to the table...sure it sucks for doing real work on, but hey, at least you can't run real desktop apps on it either!

I am sure that people will rush right out to buy your sad excuse for a desktop OS to complement their sad excuse for a tablet as well. Oh, and maybe a soon-to-be-obsolete Windows Phone 7.5 handset to go with it? SUUUUURE!

Why so emotional for something that doesn't concern you? (Assuming you won't buy one)

Because you criticize the thing you're afraid of...

They were also, what, 5 or 7 years late with proper desktop GUI? (which, BTW, ~"sucks for doing real work, and DOS applications - in which you do real work - don't quite fit" - or at least, that's what many said) 10 years late with office suite? 20 years late with console?
And look how "irrelevant" they are in those fields...

You're in for quite a ride.
