It may sound silly to hook external monitors up to a tablet but the more powerful Windows 8 models are essentially full desktop systems in a slate form. They can easily drive a full desktop configuration and can be used as a core module in a setup with monitors, keyboard, mouse, and any other peripherals needed.
Some users have gotten used to having multiple monitors at the desktop, and Windows 8 handles that with aplomb. Configuring the monitors is a simple process that works just as well with tablets as it does other system forms.
The prospect of wireless docking can fully leverage the use of multiple monitors with Windows 8 tablets.
Use any peripherals
The Windows ecosystem of third party peripherals is huge, and that extends onto the tablet. Peripherals that work aren't restricted to the multiple monitors indicated on the previous slide, virtually any type of hardware that connects with standard connectors can be used with tablets.
Scenario: It is easy to connect a 1TB portable hard drive for handling lots of large files on the go. Not everyone will need such storage capacity on their tablet but audio and video professionals might find that pretty handy.
Snap view rocks!
Microsoft built the ability to run and display two apps side-by-side, a feature called snap view. This is a very useful way to work with two programs together. Snap view in Windows 8 is nice enough and improvements in the upcoming Windows 8.1 make it even better.
Some Samsung Galaxy Android tablets have this capability (called multiview) but it is more limited than the Windows 8 snap view. Any two apps can be snapped together in Windows 8, even the legacy desktop, while Samsung's method only works with certain apps.
