    I think this form factor is really cool. Few things I would suggest but otherwise it has a lot of applications that I could see myself using it for. I would like to see the price.

    I prefer the look of the KB1 (the track pad and bigger battery are the big sellers). and if it folded similarly to the KB2, with some USB 3 ports, then have the model upgraded with the newer Cherry Trail processor and 4GB RAM, this would be quite a reasonable set up. May even get one of the low power 15w "i" series processors into it for a great little portable system for work and play.
    Considering if you do go away and want to take a PC with you, the Stick PC's and such all still need a keyboard and cursor controller. Having widi means you could get away with only having just the keyboard to take.
    Maybe they should also make a hub with retractable cables for HDMI and USB.
    When Thunderbolt 3 becomes more widely used and added to TV's, that would be the only cable required.

    I can think of a very good use for this form-factor - some of the old barristers I work with are struggling to use iPads etc in Court, because the screen timeout is short, but if extended, it chews through the battery in less than a day. There's also the lack of a keyboard should they need to take notes quickly. One of these plugged in to the monitors provided at Court would be magnificent. Anyone know where I can lay my hands on the KB1 in the UK? Google has turned up nothing.

    Unless it is significantly cheaper than a "cloudbook" model including a screen I'm not sure why you'd use it as a travelling PC and lose out on actually being able to use it whilst moving. I can however see how it is potentially handy as a kiosk PC, sitting next to the TV or as a way of setting up a quick console or display screen.

    That is the problem at the moment, I had a look around on the web but there is no price mentioned for either - unless I am blind, just in case, can any sighted person find it? :-)
    Pricing would have a impact on who would buy it.
