My Wish for My Next Computer
Now everything is moving toward tables, it seems. And like the old fogy I am (I used to be an early adapter but now I'm old) I'm reluctant. A table would be nice to have for those few times a laptop is too much. But my iPhone seems to work fine for that. But I have seen a Dell computer that is a tablet, laptop, and has a docking station and to me, that's near perfect.
What I want in my next computer is an iPad Air-sized and massed tablet, that turns into a laptop with a nice big keyboard (I have fat fingers) that docks into a docking station to emulate a desktop. Oh, and I don't want to have to carry something that turns it from tablet to laptop but that could be a compromise (have a keyboard and a frame to hold the tablet).
That way I'd have the best of all three worlds. And since I'm a writer, I need to be able to use my ergonomic keyboard that I love. Oh, and operating system needs to be as powerful as Windows 7 and as simple to use as iOS 7. Is that too much to ask?
I'm thinking when I do buy a new computer I'm going to wait for Windows 9 and hope the problems with Windows 8 are worked out (I did notice Windows 8 had a huge update).
