I think tablets are great.
I didn’t really go into exploring whether I could do 80% of my work on an iPad Pro with a keyboard case.
For a development environment, I haven’t seen any apps that support touch in a laptop screen configuration. More generally, I haven’t explored touch apps that work in this mode.
I think the convertible configuration, where you can flip over the touch screen completely and use your laptop as a big tablet, is definitely interesting.
Do you know of any apps that are built for “poke at your screen” mode of a traditional laptop?
