at least this Hammacher got it right: Touchscreen are not intended to be used vertically.

Very overpriced for what it is but grats to you on the new piece of kit.

If I can afford it , I will buy it for sure.Although, I hate coffee.

 

Interesting question though, How about  power supply and heat?

Fantastic little purchase! I like the idea - great for showing photos etc :) I also really like the koi pond suggestion it has on the website.

 

I am a little confused about the 720p res but...would have been great to see it at 1080 =P but that's just me being greedy!

I'd prop my feet up on it and let the cat surf the Internet.

Only 720p? I would not be happy about that.

 

Still, it's a very cool thing.

This is cool and I always buy crazy stuff like this but...

 

It seems like it would be difficult to upgrade and the 720P. These two alone would make it a very nervous purchase at that price. You could get a 65 inch 2013 samsung LED TV with a power house computer for $6K.

 

Non the less enjoy your tablet tablet man!

At this point, I would be screaming "ABORT MISSION,  ABORT MISSION" (inside my head)

 

You could build, or have built for you, a much better version for less money.

 

Sorry, I don't mean to ###### on your parade :/

There's always the question of how much your time is worth? If he really did just get a 6k+ bonus, I would imagine that his time is more valuable then to spec out the components and then find someone and hire them to make the table. Sure, you could make the table yourself but if you don't have the tools, skills, or time... I'd say just buy the product.

 

Plus, outsourcing the work to have a specialized product like this helps the economy more. Now someone has a job to make the product.

Won't that be really easy to break? People setting stuff down on it all the time, kids sitting on it, it's hard enough to keep a normal tablet from getting broken.

 

It says tempered glass but still, I'd always be nervous considering the price. That said, eh, it seems a bit tacky to me but I'm not even a fan of coffee tables.

 

It is pretty cool though. The only thing that matters is that you like it, enjoy!  :)

 

Edit: Actually that would be awesome to install MAME and play some old cocktail style arcade games on.

I'm sure it would be a nice feature and good talking point, however $7000 is very hard to justify the price for something like that, especially when a lot of new mobile phones have higher screen resolutions. When after the novelty has worn off what do you see it been used for on a regular basis?

 

When it comes down to it if you have the money to burn why not? I would certainly be impressed walking in to a house and seeing that.

A point I overlooked previously, is the tempered glass. I imagine that would affect regular capacitive touch screens?
