    I want to know where the dockable 2-in1s are, those phones that are just a phone until you plug in a monitor, mouse and keyboard, then its just a computer. It doesn't try to be both at the same time, it only tries to be the one you need to use right now.

    yeaaaaaaah unfortunately the type of work I do (Music Production) just is just years and years behind on tablet software. For instance the FL studio, while impressive for a phone app, is just so far behind the actual FL studio in my MacBook Pro 15 inch. I assume its gotta be the same for video editors. And yes Linus said it right, my pro work has ALWAYS revolved around a computer and I just cant sacrifice to be on the iPad, especially when my MacBook Pro is practically just as portable. I just dont see any true pro users whipping out the iPad unless their pro work truly utilizes touch interface or something. but music production and video editing just cant suffer the lesser power and lesser apps

    If they make a apple pencil that has an eraser at the back and get a real version of Onenote running, I am seriously considering changing it for my surface.
    For note taking this would be awesome, but at the moment I am so much faster with my surface, when writing correcting, changing colors and so on.
    Its cool, but even for just note taking and not replacing your laptop, at the moment I would definitely recommend the surface.
    At the moment, I own a ipad 12.9 2gen and a surface book. I love my ipad, but I mostly write on my Surface if I really want to take notes and work with it.

      That’s true, software wise at least. I have a feeling that Linus will move the goal-posts again. It may go something like this: “Apple DID listen to some of the complaints we brought up....but...” and then go into a big diatribe. But hey, that’s why we like Linus, he doesn’t (as far as I’ve seen) cut anyone any slack.

    Tablets were going to replace the laptop but of course they failed. So now they are trying to be a laptop. They will still fail as they are far too thin, way underpowered and don't have any ports. Plus ios doesn't lend itself well for anything other than browsing the web.

    Tablets without full operating systems are merely toys. They are powerful and fun, easy to use, attractive, and can sometimes do more.
    I still have my original iPad mini and I have an old Surface 3. The Surface is a perfect marriage of laptop and tablet function. The iPad is still fun and friendly to use (within the limitations of not being able to download new apps and some old apps have stopped working altogether). The Surface would have a similar feel in tablet mode but the laptop functionality is all too tempting to ever enable that. Apple has essentially "bricked" my iPad from doing anything more than FaceTime and web browsing, despite the hardware being in perfect condition. My Surface will be able to work for years to come and at least function as at netbook in a future where hardware demands will be much higher-- BUT IT WILL STILL WORK.
    So, idk, I guess what I'm saying is that, like our cell phones, anything with a mobile operating system should just be considered a convenience and not as a work station.

    I'm suprised how you didnt mention that an abomination that keyboard attachment for the iPad pro is. It feels like cheap plastic, horrible key travel, and in general a horrible keyboard. Why can't they just make a good keyboard attachment so you feel like your getting your money's worth when you are spending more money for it then another far better keyboard attachment? It's actually absurd that the iPad pro keyboard costs $129 and it feels like it should be $50

    The mouse vs finger part doesn't make sense. How can you say it's "like a chimp" to touch the screen when going for the mouse, your hand has to travel the same amount AND THEN Travel to go to the point on the screen you want to click. Touching the screen is a lot more intuitive and way less travel time.

    Thank you, so glad he made the point about productivity. You're always going to be slower (much slower) using a tablet. Always. Now, if you have a small workload, or just don't mind moving at a snails pace (or, at least when compared to working on a desktop computer), then sure, maybe the iPad prod is good for you. But for everyone else, you would be wasting a lot of your companies time trying to use something like this as your only computer and if you were my employee, I would never approve it.
