Gruber: Best Dell Ad Ever

John Gruber, writing for Daring Fireball:

“The device in question doesn’t actually look much at all like a MacBook Air or an iPad. It looks like a broken chair.”

Dell is out with a new device, a laptop that converts into a tablet.

I’ve seen images of it since it was teased a while back (maybe last CES?), and the word that first came to mind was “rickety.”

The display frame is a disaster waiting to happen. Or a service call. Given that every Dell laptop I’ve ever used needed at least one set of hinges replaced, that’s par for the course.
