    Bit confused, on the Sony UK site it seems to be called a fit but the images of the fit do not show it folding to a tablet.

    The hinge on the flip seems to add a lot to the thickness when in tablet mode. The Samsung ativ Q looks much thinner to me.

    If the Activ Q ever comes out. The duo all over seems very flimsy having had another look this morning.

    Well Day 2 with the Dell XPS 12 and already had to get Dell support to dial in and sort an issue (new BIOS update)... all the physical buttons on the case (not the keyboard) died suddenly!

    The due 13 is not in any shops anywhere around my area. Might wait until next year when the Samsung Ative Q is rumored to finally come out.

    The "start button" in windows 8.1 isnt actually a start menu, it just drops you onto the metro interface from desktop mode.

    Indeed I was like I can finally upgrade to 8.1 (only one left in IT in the office using 7 as I hate 8) but 8.1 doesn't have a real one so Classic Shell is what will be needed to make it human

    You mean you don't pin everything to the taskbar anyway?

    The Start screen is fine IMO, it's the lack of apps using tiles properly that sucks (you get an appreciation for Live Tiles when using Windows Phone 8). And Metro apps need to die now as they are useless on a PC.

    I'm going to go against the flow here, I know, but I like it.

    Since they started including a run box in the start menu I've never used the thing anyway - there's not a single program I can't access faster by typing it's name instead of hunting through menus. For the few where I want one-click access, I just pin them to the taskbar. As far as I'm concerned the new interface only got rid of an annoyance on the screen which I never used, and took up screen estate. The start screen on the other hand I can pin various useful tiles to (things I'm actually interested in) and get an at-a-glance check of my various e-mail accounts, media accounts, train schedules, latest news and so on.

    Not to mention being able to jump straight into playing a film on Netflix by starting to type the title and other useful little bits.

    Looks good, although at £1,475 it had better be.

    At this point I'd be waiting for Baytrail, cheaper, faster, better Asus Transformer Book T100 convertible has quad-core Bay Trail SoC, starts at $349 - The Tech Report
