so basically a big tablet?

I absolutely see a market for this size in places that conventional desktops are too bulky, such as kitchens, workshops, or even libraries, schools, and museums. I might even get one for the kids/guests to pull out periodically to use while still being in the main family area (maybe at the kitchen table).

It would be not much different than a laptop that is plugged in, but more flexible in that the keyboard is not attached to the screen (and much more powerful than a tablet).

The main purpose I can see for these is around-the-house use, which is what a lot of 15" laptops are already used for. Plus, those laptops are easier to take places. What's the draw of this supposed to be?

If I am going to have any form of a desktop, it is going to have a 24 inch screen minimum. Period.

Part of me always wanted a 15" tablet. But I can also see it handy for places that carry around clipboards and stuff (hospitals anyone?), as long as its light enough

I am debating running my office from a mini 93p lenovo on the back of a monitor, an all in one, or a lenovo think pad yoga attached to a monitor so many choices but a 17 inch all in one is a no go.. Too small even going back 10 years ago I had a 19 inch all in one from Gateway and that is as small as I would go.

I have a 17 inch all in one, But I call it a laptop. And it comes with a battery backup in case of a power failure.
