I can envision a possible future where we buy a processing box that sits in a closet and all of our devices defer the heavy lifting to to it. You just choose which interface is most fitting at the time.

"...for folks to whom "content creation" pretty much means writing newspaper and magazine articles without illustrations, the tablet can function as a content creation platform."

There are of course all kinds of forms of "content creation" that a tablet can be used for, but in terms of writing specifically, you're selling tablets' capabilities short.  Creating/writing content that includes images/illustrations and frequent reference to other content is perfectly within the realm of capabilities for a tablet, especially with the right tools/workflow.  (Check out writing apps like Editorial and Writing Kit, to name a couple of iOS examples.) But of course for real "heavy duty" work you will need a desktop or laptop - no one is suggesting that tablets are a desktop replacement.

Wacom has a new pen that allows use of a tablet to replace the Cintiq drawing screens. So its pretty clear that tablets can be used for creative work including drawing, sketching, photo editing, video (recording), etc. This is not to mention communication capabilities (audio and video conferencing, etc).

Exactly. How is ergonomics an issue when mouse and keyboard, and even a MONITOR is added?


Look at the WiGig standard and see what it's really doing. It's enabling wireless docking. Think about that.


You can even put a powerful phone in front of a monitor, a keyboard, and a mouse, and you can work VNC from it.

 

I do CAD work on my docked laptop. It's hooked to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. The design work isn't even done on that laptop, but on a powerful server that's not even in the same BUILDING.

 

People just see what's under their desks or in their rooms. That's their world. They don't see anything else. They don't see other usages. Engineers on the whole are a very myopic and insular bunch.

processors

The quad core processor based on Silvermont architecture technical characteristics are very promising, tablets need such low-power-consuming X86 processors to maximize battery life. It is possible to run autodesk software on tablets having such processors? My nephew`s Intel atom processor is too slow for such kind of operations.
