A Desktop Tablet?

Toshiba Excite 13

Today I came across an article about Toshiba Excite 13 – a tablet that is bigger than any other – the whole 13 inchies. The first thing I thought about after reading an article was – why so big? To my mind 10 – 11 inches are enough for a tablet. It seems more to be a desktop tablet, than the one to take with you anywhere. On the one hand a big display is comfortable to view pictures, but it seems not so good to deal with. The tablet is not a full-task computer after all and it is not comfortable to work with if it is put horizontally on your knees. So you have to hold it in your hands (mainly). Another remarkable thing is that the more the size, the more materials are to be used, thus it weights more. For me the latter comes second in the list of 'must be' after the hardware filling when the talk comes to tablets. And to work with this one I will have to put it on my desktop. Well it is definitely not my variant.

Could a big-screen tablet be of interest to you?

Surely, not to me, as well. I hardly see a lot of differences between this so called tablet and usual PC. This new model is very inconvenient to deal with.

Don't you think that there are some places at your home where it is hard to imagine putting your usual PC, but you need it there? What about your kitchen?
In my opinion, it would be very convenient to use this Toshiba's tablet there, wouldn't it?

I'm fed up with computers at work so I'm trying to avoid using it at home.

Well, I am affraid to take any device to places, where they have high chances to drown or get 'watered'. So the kitchen and any computer are not the things to go together for me.

Although the tablet is bigger than any other and its weight is about 1 kg, I think, it will find its target customers. There are many people liking to buy big things.
