    Jesus.... this laptop is so expensive that the keyboard needs to feel amazing, if its touch screen it should be compatible with other stylish pens, and it better be comfortable on my lap when sitting down

    Other wise...waste of money when you can go for another powerful machine

                            The Dell Duo would like to comment on this, but it DIED.

                            Imagine not being in research and development, but knowing full well you should have done the market research on this design. And, I don't know maybe find out if someone did this before and did it work?

                                    People always laugh at innovation because of their narrow focus. In reality if we didn't try things what would we know is going to work or not work, until we try. (:

                                      Why is it ALL current laptop manufacturer's have to do stupid things with the keyboard and trackpad? Where the heck is the number pad??? Give me a 6 year old Toshiba C50 Laptop keyboard which has zero keyboard flex and no wobbly keys! Ffs is it really that hard? It's a shame Toshiba stopped making laptops as just about any company can throw a heap of hardware together, but if we can't use the keyboard productively, what's the point???

                                                              I had intended to make a screen hinge just like this when the Eee laptops first came out. The idea being to turn it into a tablet by folding it flush with the keyboard.

                                                                They came up with this hinge type several years ago for non-gaming laptops. I specifically bought one because I needed a laptop with touchscreen for portable POS use (in part), and this design gives you a solid, stable screen when you touch on it, unlike the normal/foldover hinge laptops, which wobble all over the place for several seconds when you tap on them. It also allows you to just flip the screen over to show something to someone else.

                                                                Of course that was for a basically top end system at around $1k at the time, so not nearly so expensive in comparison.

Ergonomically laptops are the worst. Because you shouldn't be tilting your head down to table height. Clearly this doesn't solve both of those problems but at least it's a step in the right direction
