Why would it? The primary gaming platforms are and always will be the consoles and PC. Next-gen consoles should be a big bump for PC gaming since they are very similar to PCs so porting should be much better.

You know, I don't see why we don't have a software defined version of hybrids. Android is able to be used with a keyboard and mouse, so why wouldn't anyone think to create a "dock" that's basically a laptop with the trackpad missing. When you want to use it as a laptop, you slide your phone into the space, and it turns into the trackpad. Wouldn't be too hard to offer say, three sizes for smaller phones (iPhone 4/4S, Galaxy S sized), medium (iPhone 5 to Galaxy S3/S4), and large for phones like the Note series.

Asus has their padphone or whatever its called. One main issue is that tech these days is updated so fast by the time your announced product reaches market, there is already a faster chipset coming out and people want that.

Great idea though.

For the moment hybrids are too costly and clunky to replace tablet + laptop combo. I don't think they'll ever replace the cheap end tablets, but I'm sure they could take some market share from ultrabooks, or rather merge with them as it looks like the trend is. I don't think a keyboard is necessary for a device <10 inches, it's just too small to be comfortable for extended writing. Of course once we get proper wireless display interface you could theoretically just have a small tablet or even a smartphone do all the processing and just connect a wireless display, keyboard and mouse. That will take time though, the performance and battery life just isn't there yet. MS Surface is the best attempt at a hybrid so far, but as you can see from the sales, people aren't quite convinced enough to pay the premium. Even if the tablet+laptop is more expensive, you can buy them separately and they're great at their respective niches, while a hybrid is a compromise.

This is pretty obvious and was demonstrated by the Surface Pro and Surface RT by Microsoft. When the Pro came out the RT was pushed aside.

These new Windows 8 hybrids can actually get work done---the Yoga 13 is one of the coolest devices I've ever used.

Really? I use my Tab more then my Phone. Phone is Call/Text/Some Email. Tab is Video, Music, Web, Youtube, Email all around the house. I can take my Tab everywhere i go.

i can only see SFF tablets under 8 inches for them not to need a keyboard. if the damn screen forces you to reach all over the place just to type, it's stupid.

This will never happen for me as I hate windows 8 on tablets, and I wouldn't want an Android laptop. They will always be seperate for me until I can load steam on Android because I will never buy a windows based hybrid.

Tablet market is on the decline? According to....what? Android sales? Windows tablet sales? Definitely not according to Apple sales.

http://allthingsd.com/20130423/as-iphone-growth-slows-apples-ipad-sales-surge/


The source link isn't cooperating so i can't review the source but I for one disagree with the conclusion that tablets will go away. Sales certainly don't point to this. My guess this is just AMD talking "future" prospects since they're a non-entity in the current tablet space.

Tablets are, basically, an excellent example of how marketing can create demand for something no one needs. A return to a hybrid is basically everyone admitting they screwed up, tablets are useless, and we need the features laptops have without actually admitting that we made a mistake and need to go back to laptops. Convertible tablets and tablets have been around for 10+ years, and they've ran full versions of XP and whatnot as well.

Todays tablets are well suited for consumption and are arguably better at it then any laptop. I'm not sure they're designed for high productivity based on screen size alone. Perhaps you need to adjust your expectations. Hybrid devices would be creating a niche market that no one needs if anything.
