Microsoft just released the Surface Book, a truly innovative product in which I see a lot of potential.
What I think it’s particularly interesting is how the hardware is organized:

[…] the battery and Intel Core processor are built into the screen half of the hybrid laptop, while that high-powered GPU is in the keyboard base.
The idea is that you’d use the device in laptop mode, while connected to that graphics processor, when playing games, editing video, or typing.
When you want to use it as a less-powerful clipboard-size tablet, it detaches from that GPU-packed base for lighter tasks.
