About the All-In-Ones category

(Replace this first paragraph with a brief description of your new category. This guidance will appear in the category selection area, so try to keep it below 200 characters.)

Use the following paragraphs for a longer description, or to establish category guidelines or rules:

  • Why should people use this category? What is it for?

  • How exactly is this different than the other categories we already have?

  • What should topics in this category generally contain?

  • Do we need this category? Can we merge with another category, or subcategory?

Continuing with my weekly category tweaks, I decided I would tackle this somewhat tricky one.

@JoeS and @Dellaster brought up a good point that this subcategory may be too narrow, with the only well-known example being the Surface Studio 1/2. It is also a little ambiguous right now, with the inclusion of the ConceptD 9 convertible and the rumoured Galaxy Book Fold threads.

So I propose three things:

First, let’s create a new Windows subcategory called ‘Foldables’, anticipating new entries like the Zenbook 17 Fold, and to have a place for the existing Thinkpad X1 Fold.

Second, let’s rename this subcategory to ‘Large Format (20" and up)’, to clearly delineate it for large, special-purpose tablets with built-in PCs:

And third, let’s move the ConceptD 9 back into the ‘Convertibles’ category, grouping it back in with the ConceptD 7 and Surface Laptop Studio, which are legitimate alternatives as workstation-class devices.

I think these changes will improve forum consistency, and help users decide the appropriate subcategory for these niche form-factors.

Sounds like a good idea. Good thinking getting foldables in there.
