I really have become convinced to move from Windows to IOS, and that's been a very hard thing for me to do after 38 years of using PCs and never adopting an Apple product except for brief periods of time. So, here's my problem, and I try and try to get around it but can't work it out in my head: I really need a clamshell-type form factor or I'm stuck in that two device bind. I'm happy with a (thin and light) 2-in-1 like a Yoga, happiest with a fully detachable keyboard (like a SB, or numerous others, including the best of the SP clones, including the SP itself.) The reason is that I do a lot of typing and my daily driver needs to be good for that. Using the IPP involves too many sacrifices when it comes to typing - including no cursor. I'm really not sure why they couldn't/wouldn't make an IOS driven device that was essentially an IPP with a true keyboard - either detachable or Yoga-like. MBPs are way more expensive, heavy and at this point don't support a stylus. I completely reject the idea that having such an option destroys either "choice" as it is being suggested about simply having a cursor and mouse, or that what I seek is "what Macs are for," because you don't get the tablet-only option, the battery life, the portability or the app ecosystem. I also don't understand why Apple moves so glacially slow evolving their product line - such as how long it took to bring out the "iPad OS," which is still very limited in functionality, how still-primitive the Pencil is, after 2 versions - given their literally unlimited resources with which to develop products. I of course have no data to support this, but I have virtually zero doubt that evolving the iPad line as I am suggesting would very substantially increase their sales volume/market share in the computing device marketplace. Pisses me off, because I've come all the way to the point of wanting to make this transition (Windows to IOS) and I just can't, without drastically harming my productivity. What genius decided that slates are the *only* form factor the world needs to get its work done??? Sorry for the long rant, but I couldn't be more serious or sincere about this. I'm really happy for the artists among us, but you represent perhaps 10% of the market for computing devices.
