Default An Interesting Concept

Sony has a 20" All-In-One that includes a battery, thereby turning it into a tablet. Not sure I'm sold yet, but it's an intersting concept for sure:

Hmmmmm very interesting but i'm not 100% sure how you would use it?

I mean if i wanted to use a keyboard and mouse i'd have a desktop which is cheaper and has more power.
If i wanted to use it as a touchscreen i'd also want the portability but carrying a 20" tablet doesnt sound appealing to me?

I don't want to completely slate it because it may have it's market but it's not for me unfortunately.

Agreed. However, in 2 or 3 versions from now and 2 or 3 years from now, this could be the way "normal" computers are made.
