    The problem is that once you start buying all these additional bits for your tablet,the effective cost is being pushed up.

    You can get this Asus laptop for around £400:

    It has a 11.6" touchscreen too.

    Looks pretty nice, but seriously, "Brydge" ?! Come on. Was iBridge taken ? I'm sure a little more thought could've gone into the naming...

    Still a poor man's surface though - i.e. lacks the benefits of proper integration by having two batteries to charge, requiring bluetooth for the connection and being well, a bit clunky looking. It still means the iPad lacks the connectivity of the surface too of course..

    The fact that it exists though (and others like it) shows people want this sort of thing.

    Maybe the guy who started it is called Bryan.

    Or maybe they couldn't use i anywhere so as to avoid the lawyers.

    Funny, just because it looks like a laptop doesn't make it one.
    It's still just an iPad, with all it's shortcommings.

    I have an iPad2 that i use mainly to edit my flightlog, which is an excell file, now about 2500 lines long.
    On my 5 year old laptop it opens the file instantly, the iPad2 takes 31 seconds.....

    Can't wait for the Surface Pro, to dump the iPad in the bin.
