    I'll buy Sony Vaio Duo 13. What do you think? It is like tablet but it has also physical keyboard. It is so quality but the problem is: it is too expensive in my country and it has only 128 GB Harddisk :( Any alternative solution for me?

    That tiny trackpad looks useless to me. How much is your budget?

    Touchscreen is more handy and faster than a mouse. Everyone will use tablets one day, laptops and desktops will die.

    btw everyone will die, love my tablet but I don t see myself coding or making any work using a touchscreen, how can you reproduce touchpad or mouse multiple gesture with your arms all day long without hurting yourself ? Are you ready to play fps with your touchscreen ( and change screen every months because of scratch) How will you be able to eat pizza and work with a touchscreen without killing your lapetop with garlic oil all over it ? Still I am not judging was just givin my opinion.

    This is why Duo13 has also physical keyboard. I can also insert a physical mouse into it when it is necessary.

    I don't play games on pc.

    Change screen every month?? I won't use my tablet roughly.

    Hehe I don't eat pizza while I'm playing with my pc.

    I know it, thanks for your opinion.

    Read some review for you Duo 13 doesn t seems to be a bad machine, just not the best keyword on the market from what i read , Dell XPS 12 and Lenova Yoga seems not bad ( maybe not powerfull enought) Have a nice day !

    That's a lot of money for a good laptop without the touchscreen feature. What do you plan on using it for?

    You can always go with an iPad, Android, or Windows Tablet and have a bluetooth keyboard around when you need to do typing.

    Yea it must be "windows 8". I will use it for fun and IM. Like my first laptop. But for the coding and programming purpose, I will mostly use my laptop.

    Good I think this is a new technology but very costly are you want to sell that.

    No I won't sell it. Yes it looks like a new technology, this is why it is too costly buddy.
