    Would have to be something sturdy, and the base made of something sticky since there's about 4kg basically standing near upright on an angle...

    If it were me I'd make the base magnetic, so it snaps into position without needing to rely on friction to stay in place. Not sure what their solution is by the images though.

    It's not been classified by Asus as a laptop from the beginning, it's a desktop replacement.

    Given the format of the separate units, keyboard / upright with kickstand, it won't sit on a lap. :)

    Yeah, that's getting knocked over ALL THE TIME. I guess don't buy one if you're clumsy, have kids, or have pets.

    Yup, wouldn't trust that kickstand design for much. Would probably be afraid of it being hit enough to collapse by someone sitting on the other side of a table with their stuff. Although it is probably (hopefully) much more capable than it looks.

    However I really like the idea, as it allows for better cooling options with the less restricted airflow, and perhaps even better, it allows for using a "real" keyboard without sitting 10 miles away from the screen.

    Oh yeah, don't get me wrong, it looks awesome, and the concept itself is great. I just think that kickstand might need some additional engineering for active environments.

    I'll give the mothership credit where credit is due. It looks awesome. A portable AIO? Pretty neat idea. But, besides being neat what makes it worth it's rumored $5000 starting price? Especially when it has competition from Alienware and Acer. And both of those have cheaper options.

    Eh. . .guess we'll see. Is anyone interested in this do to its form factor?
