loonatic112358: T.rex: Incidentally, Samsung bought Wacom, so you can see where they're heading... (and Apple will be left out in the cold).

wait what?


Samsung bought 5% of Wacom. "Samsung bought Wacom" is overstating it.

likefunbutnot: HotWingAgenda: the largest commercially available tablet is under 12"

Cough.

You can argue that it's a desktop since it doesn't have a battery, but that's a 21" touchscreen running Android. And it's priced pretty reasonably, too.


I don't have to argue. HP is careful to label it correctly themselves: HP Slate 21-k100 All-in-One Desktop PC. Not all devices with touchscreens are tablets; that's a specific type of computer. Words have meanings.

Meh.  I tried using a Nexus 10 as my "daily desktop" for about a day.  It simply didn't cut the mustard when I wanted to do more than one thing at a time.  Surfing was awkward, copy/pasting between apps was awkward, no multi-monitor support, etc.  It was a fark of a lot better than trying to use a Chromebook in that I could do everything I wanted but it felt clunky and awkward.  I'm just used to having windowed apps that I can layer so I can see activity as it happens.  I quickly went back to my laptop after my Chrome and Android experiments.
