    I agree that 4:3 is better than 16:9 for tablets. 16:9 is better for watching widescreen videos, but on a tablet, nothing else.
    When your doing a presentation split screen or any documentation, 16:9 is much better. Like a laptop not a lepster. ;-)

    After using 16:9 tablets I don't think I could ever use a 4:3 tablet again.

    Totally agree. Tried to fix my mother in laws iPad 2 and the screen ratio was extremely irritating after the surface.

    Each to their own. For me, tablet is quite different to a laptop and I use it for different things.

    Yeah the Surface took me a little while to get used to the wide screen design, since I was used to reading in portrait mode and the Surface just seems silly in that mode.

    Depends on the tablet. All it takes is one cable and one adapter to connect a full size monitor, keyboard, and mouse to a Nokia 2520. So it's not like a laptop. It's like a full blown dual monitor desktop.

    That's the problem. I have a desktop for connected to a monitor, which is much more powerful and more importantly has a huge hard disk (I hardly switch this machine on any more, but I need it to store photos, etc). I also need a laptop which I need to work when travelling. A tablet, even with an attached keyboard, is too small for me to do that.

    BTW, it seems to me this is the absolutely critical point for Microsoft. If combined tablets/laptops make sense, than Windows has a good chance of succeeding on tablets because iOS and Android and not available for laptops. If they combined tablets/laptops don't, then there's no reason for most people to move from iOS/Android to Windows on tablets.

    Anyway, each to their own. No criticism intended of anyone else's preferences.
