That looks pretty cool. Wonder when it will start appearing at places and the bugs are worked out... if ever.

This has been in production for a while. It's just a large touch screen with a regular computer in it.

oh my goodness! A bigger, more expensive version of the iphone! I'm sure that will catch on.... that's how technology advances, right? bigger and more expensive?

While this is never going to become a mainstream household item (at least in its current form... who wants to be straining their neck, bending over, stretching your arms across a table when you want to read something online), I could see it being used commercially. I think it's already being used in some T-Mobile locations to compare cell phones and such, as well as some hotels.

BTW, this is pretty old. This concept was revealed over a year ago.

Will there be reports about how close contact with this surface unit will cause cancer?

IMHO that wont work. That will break ppls necks. Who wants to spend all day looking down? Just imagine, foruming and playing video games while looking down. Nope, aint gonna happen. Lol, that parody was funny on the first part when it said: " One day, Your computer will be a big *** table!" & "Instead of actually playing w/ your kids, you can just watch them play by themselves!" Lol thats classic. But man, ppl are getting too lazy w/ all this top notch technology bull crap. The box should read: Warning: You'll be able to do everything with this computer and it will take over your life and you will weigh 390 lbs and due to the inevitable constant downward force of gravity, you will fall over on this big *** computer table and Perish! Muhahahahaha!!!"

Hmm, looks like a great place to pick up germs and whatever else someone decides to bring without washing their hands.

I have a fairly new Dell XPS M1330 running Vista x64. It's a nice computer for a superportable model. It's crashed about 15 times with the BSOD. One would have thought that Microsoft had the bugs out of Vista by now.

I haven't seen any problems on my MacBook Pro though.

Perhaps Microsoft should fix the problems in their current products - that would make customers happier and more inclined to buy their products.
