This concept was for a contest that was on design contest some time ago. Hope to ear some comments, bad or worse or good if you whant. hehe

Be honest, did it not cross your mind that what if iPad was the one with an integrated keyboard and not the Microsoft Surface? Well it did cross designer Luis Fonseca’s mind and apparently much before the Surface was revealed. So this is his take on the iPad 4 with all its innovations. He predicts a built-in keyboard, Bang & Olufsen speakers, 12-megapixel-1080p camera, and an aluminum frame. His idea is to design a complete laptop replacement and not just a tablet overhaul.

The keyboard slides out from the bottom and it comes with a portable hard disk, quad core CPU and an 7 to 8 inch display. As far as concepts go, this one is quite good for the iPad, but you never know with the design team, Jony Ive and Job’s spirit guidance. This may as well not be the direction that Apple takes!

I like how this looks, but i don't think Apple will ever make an iPad like this. Once they develop stable and comfortable device, they tend to stick with the initial design, with slight modifications, i don't think they would do anything this drastic, especially with physical keyboard, which Steve Jobs once described as "lame".

Frankly, i'm a big fan of tablet/laptop combos, like Surface, Transformer, or even Padfone, for which i'm still not sure if it's an awesome combo or an overkill, so i think this would be a great product, but maybe as brand extension, not as product update.

I think design is not good enough for Apple innovation.
a little out of Apple style that prioritizes simplicity.,

I have to agree with PossPoint, not really the style of Apple. Although a really good Tablet Design, Nice job.

agree also with no keyboard still looks good and have the keyboard detachable since if youre really working through emails it would be really a great help if you have a keyboard but if its not detachable id rather have a laptop. :D

i think if the key board can use it with or without will give user more choice, good job.

iPad is a tablet but this one is laptop. So the name should not be iPad anymore.

I like the way this looks but I don't think it would be very functional

I like the keyboard option... It would fold behind the screen, right? Maybe not Apple, but I can see one of their competitors producing something like this to match the ipad.
