A mobile 'desktop' has its uses. I LOVE having an 8" tablet that can act as a server or AP if i need it to. No website ever tells me 'not available on mobiIe'. I bought it to make up for any bullshit deficiencies my ARM based mobiles devices might have, like transferring files to each other.

The problem is that this solution isnt really commercially viable. Sure you will get some shops using it to reduce their safety liability vector, but for the most part its just too expensive. Each stop costs SIGNIFICANT($70+) replacement costs and it false stops more than an acceptable amount.

TO be fair, on your last point, Mavericks multi-monitor support really is a huge step up from the past. Being able to extend the desktop to Apple TV is a nice feature and works very well. The Mavericks multi-mon is definitely a step above Windows right now. Full Disclosure: I have Linux, Win 7, Win 8, Steam OS, and OSX on my desk right now. Every machine has a dedicated GPU.

The 'air' can only hold so much data. If you have an wireless Access Point on one network and I have an Access Point on another, we split the available 'air' bandwidth. The room can only hold so much data, and everyone shares the frequencies regardless of the network configuration.
