In a business environment, as has been the case for several years, the primary benefit of having a tablet like this is the ability to keep handwritten notes, sign off on documents and/or get customer signatures. Secondary is drawings and sketches of ideas, whiteboard presentations, etc. And all of these things SUCK when using a finger or one of those fat mushy-head stylus devices. This is the same reason the revolving screen is important and why the yoga just won't work for this. When you are in front of people giving a presontation, the ability to turn the screen towards your audience while keeping the keyboard in front of you is important.
Unfortunately too few manufacturers seem to get it. Fujitsu does. So they made nearly the perfect convertible for us. Yes. It's overpriced. But they get that because they can....because no one else makes something comparable. The old dell XT3 was close but too old. The Newer Lenovo Twist was close to ideal but its lack of stylus support made it flounder in this audience that Lenovo just failed to understand as well. (That and their wanky way of moving the standard locations of keys like CTRL and Fn). I'm typing this on my Twist while my T904 loads some software and I can't tell you how excited I am to have my stylus back.
It's sad that so few companies get this. It leaves very little motivation for innovation. For example, it would be awesome if someone made this machine but threw in a smaller screen on the backside.
