So in the case of this computer, what would YOU call it then? Its far bigger than a PDA, and its not a laptop either. I suppose it be a all-in-one PC similar to HP's Touchsmart however its hardware and software is more similar to those of smartphones and tablets.

It's an AIO pc just add peripherals. The only issue with it is that it's running a mobile OS. Now if it was running ChromeOS they might have something.

I would call this a smart monitor. Use it stand-alone when you don't need much processor power, plug in HDMI connector from your main PC to get extra power and monitors.

I actually have room for a third monitor on my desk, between the keyboard and upright monitors. If it could run windows and be portable for when I just want to read casually it would be ideal. Oh, and pressure sensitive screen for graphics input.

If it is not at least between 400ppi and 600ppi for displaying crystal clear photo's then its completely pointless for me. It's probably cheap because the screen is pixelated at 21.5 inchs.

There are no displays with 400+ ppi on the planet. Perhaps a few prototype panels...

And Mr. Genius, the larger a screen gets, the less ppi you need to get a crisp image because you will be looking at large displays from a distance, and you won't be able to make out any pixels from a certain distance. You don't watch TV from 30cm away do you?

What kind of glass does it have on the screen? Is it Gorilla Glass (1 or 2) or what? I would love to see something like this having Gorilla Glass 2. Where I work would benefit from it.

And you sit on a couch to look at your 21.5 inch tv/tablet/ or any panel? It is not a 60 inch TV hung on a wall where the pixels can be the size of a pencil eraser and no one would care.

[strike]Can't believe no one has brought this up...but that massive display is gonna eat battery like theres no tomorrow. Unless theyre planning on throwing in a giant battery, battery life will be laughable at best.[/strike]

Edit: scratch that. look online some more, apparently it doesnt have a battery at all, completely power dependent on an outlet.

What's crazy is that a quick Google search for this device shows that most of the internet is referring to this as a tablet. A tablet is a portable device. This thing needs to be plugged in, therefore not portable. Only a few websites get it right and refer to it as an AIO PC.
