Mac Air + smartphone (any) is the way to go for me, I still don't see much use for a tablet. Note 3 or One Max would be the ideal package for the tablet lovers.

I believe tablets are useless.

Actually alot of people are no moving from laptops to tablets as evidenced by a drop in laptop sales and an increase in tablet sales. Tablets are usually lighter and have more variety in form factor (e.g. hybrids) and you can usually get them up to core i5 or i7 chips as well which means that unless people see the need in the old laptop style theyll just buy a tablet instead...
