Do you guys think we would ever head that direction? Would a pro 3d fx artist ever use a tablet-like computer instead of a desktop?
The main problem I see is that instead of touch, I'd much rather have pens, etc. Like the Wacom LCD tablets - but BIGGER!
A very large touchscreen PC with sufficient horsepower could be good for drafting, autocad, or maybe solidworks. Things of that nature where you're designing and creating.
The only limiting factor is the OS and input devices. Android is bad as Operating System for productive usage, because it's made for consumers.

When we start better understanding how self-organizing structures work, we'll be very close to build miniature mobile supercomputers with extremely low energy consumption. I guess the battery and chip will be made out of the same material, but different structures. Production will be very cheap, because manufacturing will not require lasers, toxic acids and rare materials anymore.
