I want something similar but somewhat different.

I want a 11 inch macbook air with a touchscreen, mouse support, and detachable keyboard like the upcoming Surface Pro.

It needs to have usb ports and bootcamp and I will buy it immediately.

There are some specialize applications I use that are only for Windows. They require me to have a usb port dongle. Also there are times and certain things that are just easier to use on a laptop than tablet.

Maybe one day Apple will move in that direction.

Lets see if anyone can get a hackintosh running on the pro. I have a hackintosh on my desktop, I might be brave enough to try it on my pro when I buy it.

The problem I think will be is that OSX does not have touchscreen support.

I like the concept of the Surface Pro, that is going to be a debate for me going forward and waiting for the next macbook line refresh.
