Re: iPad Mini

said by Octavean:

I’d also like to be able to dock an iPad with a Mac Mini and use the iPad as a display for the mini.

Fully aware that its likely to never happen I was only referring to what I would like to see. I’ve seen concept devices they may have come to market doing something similar with Windows and Android so it technically already been done.

For what its worth Air Display always seemed a little sketchy to me.

Apple's done a dock before, too. In 1992 for the PowerBook Duo line. I really don't see them doing it again. None of the previous dock-type devices have caught on, and I don't think they will in the future. Just my opinion though.

Sketchy in what way? It worked well when I tried it out about a year ago. Some lag, but that's to be expected over Wifi.

I was referring to the Lenovo Ideapad U1 Hybrid Tablet

»www.engadget.com/2010/01/05/leno···essions/

I don’t think they ever went to market with it though. Excellent idea IMO and I don’t recall seeing anything like this concept.

That’s what I was suggestion by “sketchy”. I should have just said laggy.

I've seen some nice concepts for windows 8. Not 2 different OS but that seems more cumbersome than having metro and desktop for windows.

HP Envy 2 looks like something you might want to look at. But i've seen all OEMs, sony samsung asus have their own hybrids.

I found the key to success but somebody changed the lock.

Asus has a Transformer All-In-One Android and Windows 8 hybrid 18.4-inch desktop / tablet:

»www.engadget.com/2012/06/04/asus···mer-aio/

Great concept design IMO, not necessarily practical due to the size of the tablet though. Not totally unmanageable considering there are 17” laptops,….just no 18.4” tablets,……

(youtube clip)

Yeah, the concepts only work if the tablet is under 13". I'm personally going to go for either the lenovo »www.engadget.com/2012/10/09/leno···nounced/ or the asus.

I like the dell concepts but i'm not sure i trust dell hardware.
