    How is that not an All-in-One PC?

    No keyboard, I guess.

    You can attach one to either. The difference would probably be "portability", since this tablet has 2 hours of battery.

    Ridiculous. It's a touch screen that costs 6k. For that money, I can buy four awesome desktops + peripherals that offer the same amount of pixels, 20x more disk space, 10-12x more ram, 20-30x more peripherals, x40 more gpu power, and roughly 8-12x more cpu power. So, I think it's an easy decision.

    It may be useful to in some niches, but the opportunity cost is just too high as pointed by Mrkvonic.

    This is one of those totally polarizing devices. Either this is the greatest thing ever or 100% useless with no gray area in the middle at all. If I was a contractor I think something like this would be awesome.
