  1. Regarding design, you made a statement about Apple coming in and “perfecting” the designs. however when it comes to the current generation of devices I think, and it seems others now, would agree that MS is the one “perfecting” the design of the devices. And they are quickly adapting the software as well now to accommodate these devices. Thus the reason that Apple followed suit and developed the iPad Pro.

  2. Also, do don’t ALL, live on iOS or Android for tablets as the Surface device lineup has shown. Agreed that as you mentioned that MS needs to bolster the “apps” available in that tablet mode. As Win 10 continues to gain traction, that should take place, not that it will, but it should.
