Not me. It's why I swapped my iPad for a XPS 12.

I have a 10" convertible tablet; it's basically a netbook whose keyboard you can remove. In tablet mode I can type OK using my thumbs on a split keyboard. I wouldn't want to do it for any extended length of time, but it's been good enough to keep notes at meetings, seminars, and such. It's a little easier in laptop mode if I have a place to set it up, despite the short throw keys.

Neither is as good as using even a $10 wired keyboard with full-size, full-depth keys, but that isn't nearly as portable.

I'm a total keyboard snob. I can just barely tolerate writing an email on the XPS (which has a pretty good laptop for a thin and light). For any serious writing I go to my desktop and my mechanical keyboard.

Agreed. I got to the point where when I set up my tablet, I also had a keyboard, a mouse, and an external hard drive. Seemed silly not to just switch to a laptop at that point. I'm trying a new tablet though - Surface Pro2 (or 3? can't remember which now). It's better than the last one, but I didn't buy the connecting keyboard, and I'm regretting it.

I'm pretty stoked for this.
Fully agree! Though I dont really care whether we get a OSX native version or a web-based a la Herolab Online. Parallels is a crutch that works, though Id like to get away from it as they charge 50 Euros every time there is a new version of OSX. This is money Id rather give to LoneWolf.

Laptop or tablet, for day to day productivity I would never suggest anything but a std mechanical keyboard and mouse. The keyboards on my Surface Pro 3/6 are great for travel, meetings, gaming nights etc, but in no way shape or form do they come even close to my Corsair keyboard.

My lappie has an OK keyboard, but again its for mobile use, as much as any 10lb laptop us mobile.

My Dell U3415 came with a KVM built in, didn't even know until I started connecting it, what a sweet bonus, now when at home, they all use the same peripherals.
