I don't think he meant MS/Android hybrid, haven't heard anything about anything like that. Pretty sure he means one of those convertibles that can be used as a Win8 laptop or flipped in some manor to be used as a Win8 touchscreen tablet, like those Ultrabooks.

And to help with the original question, I am personally leaning towards tablet for websurfing on the couch and desktop PC for playing games. I moved a couple months ago, and I have yet to even power up my old laptop, my Nook Tablet has been fine for web surfing. I am going to build a new desktop for my computer room though, as I do want to be able to play games and run Windows programs if I want to.
