Still uses a tray-load DVD drive. Why not a slot load one? Or why one at all? They're virtually obsolete now.
I like Lenovo's take on a Win8 AIO PC at the last CES. You can lay it virtually flat (horizontal) which is going to feel a LOT more natural to use for touch than a vertical screen.
This would be good for web browsing and multimedia. Other than that i wouldnt want to play bf3 or dota 2 and theres no way i will play civilization on that very taxing on the gpu
Slot load are harder to maintain and more likely to break down over time. While usage is way down but we're still years from seeing them completely phased out. Lot's of people still use DVD's for movies, games, loading software, etc.
Like floppies before it, the cost per disc is pretty low now and is convenient for making boot disks and backups, as long as you don't need to store a lot.
While vertical viewing angle is better for places like the Kitchen, where you can use the touch screen and then still see what's on the screen from the other side of the kitchen (like when following a recipe). Among other similar examples. Range of usages are actually quite diverse and what works best will differ on the type of scenario usage.
