I saw this and thought I just have to write about it...then I looked up what Tom's hardware had to say.
There's no question that this is a huge step forward, but it's specs are limited at the moment. Tom's hardware takes a more exacting look at this machine, and it's worth reading both the NoCamels (enthusiastic and less exacting) and the Tom's Hardware (realistic, if negative and a tad harsh) articles to get a balanced view.

"The company wants people who they think can use this the way envisioned — using lots of windows, largely web apps — trying the Spacetop first. People who need more powerful hardware, like gamers, will be asked to wait. Once an applicant is approved, they will pay $2,000 for their hardware."

Personally. I think it's a great idea, but limited at this point by its OS and by its using only webapps. A valid point is that Apple's new VR headset might end up being a more attractive solution. What I found most attractive is that this, if it's combined with a Groupy app could give very portable, less costly work machines with dedicated work spaces and can if developed more, eliminate the cost of screen for businesses.
It's in the future though, and at least for me, I can see businesses and individuals wanting something like this if their processing demands aren't large for the software they use.
It needs much more processing power to get into the hard core gaming and digital design worlds.
