    Interesting how the laptop form factor just flipped 60º

    Prob won't go mainstream right away, but seems inevitable.

    @Lucian Mangu yes, microsoft could have took the lead here but instead they decided to screw up this one by putting a desktop os into a touchscreen tablet.

    @Adrien Olczak, no they didn't screw thing up. They just went 3 steps into the future. I'll bet with you that by 2020 we won't even remember the times when we were using the mouse & keyboard.

    @Lucian Mangu i just can`t image the actual work without the mouse nd keyboard. Image that fact you are making design you have to have you hand in the air all the time just do adjust one button? :) Yes sometimes its nice, but for long time work its going to be wierd. Groundbreaking will be mind control! :D

    @Haim ifrah actually think that's what the laptop will be.

    @Lucian Mangu I know what you mean in the approach, but did you see that? looks like a rather screwed up entry product.

    @Luboš Volkov agree, especially for FPS. Don't have number but I believe most people use their laptop mainly for surfing the web, reading article, watch movie, enter few comment on FB, etc. If they need to write a doc, *click* plug the keyboard. There only when needed.

    Nice shot. Looks good.

    But there is no way that is the AFTER of laptops. The after is still the Macbook Air/Ultrabook slim style. I mean, you're kind of taking a title away from, mostly apple, who have reset the bar on laptops after years and years of use and giving it to Microsoft over what is still a new product launch?

    The Surface is not ready to compete against laptops. It can only compete against tablets today. Despite the OS. I'm speaking form factor only.

    Very good idea but surface is just a type of laptop and doesn't replace "classic" laptop actualy.

    @David Silva thanks. agree with most of what you wrote, I still truly believe this is the after of laptops. Why would you need the keyboard to stick around if 90% of the time you don't need a physical keyboard? The main prob holding it back is the transition from desktop os to touch os.

    It started with the phone, then the tablet, its just a matter of time before laptop switch to touch at some point too, especially with costs going. Remember, months ago there was no 7" tablets, and now there's millions out there spreading like crazy. No one really know the answer, but that's what makes this period exciting.

    There is no denying tablets and realizing that we never knew we needed one until we were given one lol

    Discovering where that transition line between laptop and tablet will be fun in the years to come.

    How does it seem inevitable? For the Surface it made sense but I'm not sure if this indicates a trend. Also, I'm sure I'm wrong but those shadows seem weird to me.

    I'm really doubting the future is in kickstands.

    I'm pretty sure that in a generation or two the iPad will merge with the MBA too. So I guess I agree that this is sort of the future of small portable computers that will be more than enough for most people and a great second machine for traveling and stuff for the likes of us that will still have a larger, more powerful one for work.

    But the kickstand still seems like a bad idea to me :)

    @Adrien Olczak Not everything you see on the interweb is true or valid, please don't base your opinion about a product on someone's blog post. Specially from a bloke whose sweater says "Deny Everything".

    @Adrien Olczak How is Windows RT not a touchscreen OS ??
    I use my Surface everyday as a tablet (crazy) and when I have to use a Nexus 7 or an iPad I feel like those are juste big smartphones.
