No one cares for this in the industry. This is why, since at least the days of the pyramids, we have used these devices known as trollies to move devices around. Any engineer doesn't need a small footprint desktop, and if they are in the field, or on the go, they have a laptop. Current size ultra books are plenty. In fact, after introducing the Surface Pro to P. Eng he was consumed into the device; he fell in love with the Suface Pro and wanted to order a bunch for his department. Sorry, but this is a mute argument.
Rest remain mute as they exist in competition options at less expensive prices.
