    What would your custom smartphone or tablet look like? Internals don't matter, only the exterior does.

    In front of my Mac
    I'd have a MacBook Air/iPad hybrid tablet with a swivel screen so it can be used either as a laptop or tablet. It would also have the same connectivity as the MBA does. In fact it would be essentially an MBA 11" with a swivel screen. It would run OSX and not iOS.

    My design would have an aspect ratio of 5:3. To achieve the shape, place the screen in a rectangular prism and round off the corners with a circular curve. The front would be back while the sides and the back would be unibody metal.

    This. The ergonomics are amazing. I mean, reading books, watching movies, and playing games are all 100% better on a triangular screen. You can see everything, excluding the top left and right corners, of a movie or game. So much better than these rectangles.

    I wish Sabre (specifically the Dunder Mifflin) was in Apple's position. We would be in a much better world.

    I want a tablet that is 15.2" the same size as my laptop screen, and 1/8th of the weight of the laptop.

    BURN! :p (to Apple)

    Reminds me of an Illuminati symbol; triangle/pyramid

    Seems like a huge disadvantage for the sake ergonomics.

    Unless you're being sarcastic, but you didn't use a :rolleyes: :p smilie...
