I always find myself working on my desktop when i really need to do proper work. It's just much more better when you have a nice setup.

Well thats just like your opinion man...I know at the two places I have interned....everybody uses laptops hooked up to docks to monitors to do work.

And for me, I have a nice setup but I also am productive on my laptop (if I don't have billions of windows open)...but really laptops hooked up to docks are becoming the norm in work places...

Now data mining work is different but most people on this here planet will be using laptops+docks for work. I am pro desktop but we are in the minority here man

I think this is a fantastic device and can absolutely replace a laptop for most average consumers. I personally just don't have much use for tablets in general. I want the big screen of a 15" lappy if possible and at home obviously I'm only on my desktop. Tablets are nice in situations where you just want something small and light and need to kill time (like waiting in the DMV). For that scenario you won't ever need this kind of power. Its for that reason that I never really understood why the Surface RT was made so much fun of? That's honestly the Surface I'd want as I'll stick to my Ultrabook if I need anything more powerful on the go or in bed...

It was made fun of because it had no apps

I have a friend who works at a company that does this. It's pretty cool how it docks and everything, but... I don't see this happening for any intensive needs. It'll be hot, loud and expensive. So I don't see laptops replacing desktops in general, maybe in some suitable scenarios sure.. but not in general.

Same here. In situation i need to do work at home it much better to just use Desktop. If i want to be lazy i just use my iPad in bed and in bathroom. A laptop is only useful outside home for me. If i am forced to use the laptop at home i have to blug in my Dell U2711 and mechanical keyboard and mouse. Cant stand using it as laptop to do serious work.
Anything other then PC is situational device. Many people are used to the laptop experience because they never really had a good PC. I mean going from a OEM to something like a Macbook is big upgrade for many.

Additionally, it's unlikely that you're going to see any differences when "present" whatever you present/discuss with your clients on a 15.6'' or a 12'' inch HD screen.

What does your desktop and test environment have to do with this device?

Such size, much wowe!

You act like external monitors are anywhere. I say they don't.

I admit, the hardware specs look pretty good considering the small form factor and the pretty low price. But still not something that will "destroy the laptop".

Please remember that The Verge are the ones using that phrase.

Microsoft never ever stated that. They called it a tablet that can/could replace your laptop.

Microsoft don't think that this will destroy the laptop. Verge are using that heading to get views.

I agree that you get more work done on a desktop, but laptop are still capable devices when you need 50% of desktop performance while away from your desk. Laptop are not just the media consumption machine you made it out to be(that's the role of tablets for most owners).

Really dumb how people are spending more time critiquing Microsoft's marketing slogan rather than looking at the device itself. It's a masterpiece for 2014.....Hardware wise, it's second to none.
People who are complaining that it's $1000+ for a tablet are just spit balling because clearly they just need something to complain about without looking at the device or its competition.
