Absolutely correct!!

I'd like to see something more with business productivity in mind. Also for a laptop or desktop. I have a smart phone and Android tablet ... my neck gets tired from looking down, and my arms get heavy holding the tablet up to my face

Jacee you have hit on a new market for tablets. Arm and neck exercises while you Google. Diet and exercise will always sell.

I'm sure that Apple or Google will bring out an optional exoskeleton accessory to take care of that problem.

I used an iPad for a few minutes last November.
It was surprisingly heavy.

I'm sure they've tried to relieve some discomfort with the stand and portable keypad, which I have with my Android tablet .... no go when you need to turn the tablet and then you need to 'swipe' with all attached!

Kind you changes the term portability when you use the stand and keyboard. I can see a positive though. It improves you hand to eye coordination when turning the tablet and trying to catch the keyboard and stand and swipe the screen at the same time. When you get good at that add a portable mouse. Just joking. Wait a minute I see another market.
Easy assembled and break down Lan Party Computer with it own back pack you can take any where. Comes with screen, mouse, keyboard and its own stand. Note; Back Pack comes in two colors Black. I would like to get 2% of gross sales.
Jacee I can see the money rolling in now.

Sorry I started a thread sort of on this topic here but mine is more of a personal opinion sort of thread i was just interested in hearing folks thoughts on Windows 8 then I found this thread.
It's interesting to read the reviews from 2009 on windows 7 compared to the reviews we're reading now on windows 8 in 2012. Really looks like Microsoft did stop listening to what customers want for a desk-top it just doesn't look like it's working out for people, after all we already have tablets/ smart phones so we get our fix of touchscreens and apps from them when we actually want to get some work done or do something productive we go back to our trusty old desk-tops . I think Microsoft thought people were going to stop buying desk-tops and buy just tablets and smart phone but the fact is that tablets and smart phones have dropped in price so much that people were buying them aswell as their desk-top PC.

I think this is correct. Tablets are mostly being bought as toys. I don't really think that anybody (at this time) will really attempt a serious office application or video encoding on a normal tablet. That may be possible on some of the advanced devices. But for the price of one of those I can buy two nice laptops or desktops.

I don't think Video Encoding would even be possible unless you can some how rig a wireless burning drive and accelerate the hardware some and find a program that will allow such a thing to be linked

and you would need to find a app that would allow to decode and recode for burning lol common folk wouldn't even know where to begin

There is at least 1 video converter for Android. It claims to convert any format. I have not tried it. I would think that the Tegra3 quad core processor could perform the task. But I don't see myself doing those kinds of jobs on a tablet - at least not for now.

There is even a video editor (Magisto). But how much can you do on a small screen. I sometimes have trouble on the 22". And I want to see them run the WLMM on the Surface Pro.
