As someone who bounces between a laptop and a tablet for work and is proficient at typing more than just a handful of words per minute, you'd be hard pressed to not love the line of products available that consolidate both aforementioned products into one.
Gadgets like the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, probably the most highly touted and lauded of these hybrids, market themselves as the next generation of portable devices, calling themselves the "laptop that will replace your tablet."
Most of that rhetoric isn't just blind advertising and actually makes sense when you consider what you're getting. The tablet portion disconnects from the keyboard, but both together make brilliant music together if you decide you want to have the best of both words.
But here's the catch, or call it a drawback if you will: the tablet and laptop hybrid computers or portable devices lack sorely in the keyboard department. The same could be said for the tablet lovers who attempt to search out and buy docking stations or keyboard attachments or stands for those devices as well.
If you have any ability whatsoever to type quickly or have larger hands, that combination is a deadly one if you're contemplating either using your tablet and docking station or have the Surface or something of that electronic ilk in your sights.
