FWIW, if all I had to do was dock this thing with a 24"+ screen (or two or three) to be able to use it as my primary computer, then the desktop as we know it would be essentially dead.
I wouldn't want to try to run most of my win software ( adobe and autodesk stuff ) on it at current ( and near future ) specs, and you'd need to run a few USB hubs an have additional ports..and somewhere for a mouse* ( can't do real image work or 3D or precision with a trackpad )..and it will need hacking to get rid of the awful interface..( I tried win8 , the interface does get in the way for the way non Joe and Jane 6 pack users work )..the current win8 hacks still leave metro to "jump out" at you..
But for form factor ( easy always there keyboard ) and running a full OS ( and linux side by side or in VM ) ..yes ..I'd agree with you Bill..
It can be a game changer ..
If they can get it in the shops soon, at a reasonable price point..and not be greedy..especially outside of the USA..none of this $100.00 equals €100.00 or £100.00 pounds etc gouging that goes on from everyone on hardware and software..
If the above were fixed..and it were out today ..then Apple would be worried, and so would the Android tablet makers.. as would all the ultra book, laptop and netbook makers..
* graphics tablet is even better..I like to have mouse, wacom and keyboard..it might fit a mid range wacom like a "sandwich" ..I have one which is very thin and about these dimensions..need to find a ruler that measures in inches, or convert from cm ..
