I was a desktop guy until a week ago; built my last desktop from a dual Xeon shell, plugged into 5.1 and a 40 inch telly, with parts from the spares draw and wireless keyboard and mouse.
It's a lovely multimedia and programming and world domination centre, but the used Elitebook I picked up for a song is definitely not just for puttering. It renders mp4 twice as fast as the four xeon cores, and is a serious piece of kit.
Tablets? Definitely. Puttering. Mine is used for Skype where it really shines.
Hybrid tablets like the ones you guys are discussing? Could be pretty handy, not just puttering.
