A specialized use case, but I would like one for digital art. It would be required to be fairly powerful, run a full PC operating system, and have a built in digitizer. Also, I would expect it to work well in a laptop format with a convertible/detachable/wireless keyboard.

"How would you carry that around?"
Carrying around is easy, put it an a backpack or messenger bag, 15-17" laptops are not a new thing.

"How the hell would you hold it?"
I normally wouldn't. As a laptop it would be used as any other laptop. As a tablet it would primarily normally be used on my lap, or on a desk/table using a kickstand, portable stand, or less portable docking station depending on location.

Oh, please. You know that if a worker just shows a little initiative, and works hard on the twinkie production line, they will be rewarded with wage increases and promotions until they are able to join elite non moocher society. /s

"I wish there would be some minimal Windows that just shows the desktop where I can double click on the Game I want."

Um... Windows 8 has its issues, but this is actually a use case that it's almost perfect for. It boots quickly to a screen with 1 big square icon for each of your games, which will launch the game when clicked on. You'd need to remove a few icons initially, but then you'd be set and could organize your games into whatever order or groupings you want.

No, you don't pay an actual hourly labor rate at a mechanic. You just don't realize how your bill is determined. For any given repair, the time is determined by an industry standard table. You are billed for the job and the parts, not the actual amount of time the labor took.

Every nonzero finite dimensional inner product space has an orthonormal basis. It makes sense, when you don't think about it.
