This is basically as I stated before. Those things weren't even in the realm of current tablets. They were heavy and bulky. That Dell latitude was as heavy as my laptop and almost as thick as it too. This is just MS capitalizing on what people were asking for. People complained that ios wasn't a real os so real work couldn't be done. People complained that the ipad didn't have usb connectivity. People complained that the older windows tablets were too clunky. People wanted a windows tablet with touch friendly ui. MS just addressed all of that.. so what else is there to do?
