    You know, that's not even as functional as the TC1100's deskdock, which had an optical drive built in to it (as well as a cool swingy tablet holder so you could change the screen height and angle ). AFAICT this is just a standard swivel convertible with a docking station - so last decade...

    Seriously major OEMs, a 10 year old tablet is still handing you your rear ends in terms of pure functionality. Get it together!

    So... it's the same as Lenovo's Xxxt series laptops, except it's missing the digitiser, has a slower CPU, an awkward dock, is likely to be nowhere near as robust, and will lack Lenovo's legendarily nice keyboards.

    Yeah, totally "a new era in innovative technology" there Gigabyte. You could at least have tried to one-up the X-series tablets with a better screen.

    Why on earth would you make a dock that cant be used in conjunction with the screen? Personally i think a thunderbolt (or similar/better technology) type dock would be far more flexible. Lenovo have that kind of thing with the "One Link" except it also powers the laptop. Going by these stupid "3 in 1!!!!!!!111one1!!" advertising techniquies, i guess adding that to the thinkpad yoga as an additional 'mode' makes it a 5 in 1!

    better luck next time Gigabyte!
