The fact that desktop PCs are made out of interchangeable parts is an amazing testament to IBMs market leadership 30 years ago. However, as has been pointed out, tablets and Pi computers are not made out of interchangeable parts.
It is, however, still possible to use a fully assembled tablet as an output and input device for another computer. This requires running an appropriate app on the tablet and communicating to the Pi over the network or USB. Except for running "JuiceSSH" from the Google play store on the tablet, I don't have much experience with this. Perhaps someone else can comment on displaying the whole Pi desktop through a tablet.
