Way to undersell the best feature of the gadget, guys! 😁

Detachable controllers mean the thing isn't just a gaming gizmo, but also an 8" Windows tablet. Which in turns begs questions about pen support, official mouse and keyboard accessories, docks, hubs, and ports. And how the parts connect: bluetooth, wifi, or proprietary.

A pen accessory seems mandatory since Windows is quite competent at pen input and it's very useful, especially in Lenovo's home territories.

That it won't be cheap is a given but if the thing also serves as a mobile productivity tool the added value will make the price bearable. Maybe.

Windows really need a "Game Mode" where the UI shell transforms into Xbox Dashboard-like interface, which is gamepad controller friendly. Desktop will be hidden unless user specifically want to switch back anytime.

This Game Mode is basically a launcher for games and even for game launchers, which they will automatically force to open maximized like a tablet mode.

And while on Game Mode, things like accessing Settings and other apps as well. Edge should have controller optimised where you can use d pad that simulates arrow keys and joystic for controlling mouse cursor for more precise interaction in addition for touch.

I'm really liking what I see with the Rogue Ally. It's awesome that companies are taking these risks, the more the better.

This! Which is annoying because that's what "Windows Core OS" was supposed to be. A core base OS, with the ability to have custom UI/UX shells that overlap on top (basically like Linux). That way all Windows devices share the same base features, and then for example a phone would be able to have a phone UI layer, all the Surface ablets would be able to have a proper tablet UI layer that can transition into a Desktop layer, which allows for more unique and innovative features that increase the selling value of that specific device. That's what that awesome Surface Hub 2X announce video showed off before it was cancelled *rolled eyes*.
